Opal Cards For Sydney Public Transport
We provide each guest with an Opal Card which enables them to use -
1. The Pyrmont Bay Ferry (wharf is 100 metres from our two apartments),
2. The Light Rail (station is also 100 metres from our two apartments),
3. The 389 Bondi Beach Bus (bus stop is also 100 meters down road next to the entry at the Maritime Museum).
As an add-on to this on a lovely day out, some guests take the 389 bus to Bondi Beach, then do the coastal walk Bondi to Coogee, then take the 372 bus to Central Station, then the light rail back to our building. The two bus trips are about 45 minutes each, and the light rail is 10 minutes.
The 389 Bondi Beach bus leaves every 20 minutes from the Maritime Museum.
4. The trains to anywhere in NSW including The Homebush ANZ Stadium and Direct Factory Outlets (DFOs).
You swipe your card when you get on and re-swipe it when you get off the public transport you are using.
Please remember to leave the 6 Opal cards on the kitchen table before checking out.
5. There is also a taxi rank outside the building next door.
