Central Station connects almost to both regional and local trains. It is in the central part of Sydney and very easy to access. It could be a little bit more organized and have more screens to the life of tourist more easy.

Easy to navigate your way around, plenty of signage and information for where you are going. We passed through many times during our 2 week stay, also this is where you can get your Opel cards.
