Not Great For

Residential area

Much like our last location, Circular Quay is a huge hit with tourists. It’s a gorgeous, historic part of town with tons of options for shopping, dining and lots of popular attractions, such as the world-renowned Sydney Opera House and the Museum of Contemporary Art. Another big part of its popularity is due to Circular Quay being an incredibly important area for community gatherings and celebrations, thanks to its central location between major Sydney icons.

Getting to Circular Quay

Circular Quay is another district which is too far to realistically walk to from the airport. Therefore, if you’re arriving at Sydney Airport, you can pick between train, which has a good mix of speediness and cost-effectiveness; taxi, which is a little more expensive but possibly less hassle for those with a lot of baggage; or the Line 303 bus, which is by far the cheapest but most time-consuming option.
