Only just realised the convenience of getting around Chinatown-Exhibition Centre-International Convention Centre-Darling Harbour. Saved our tired feet and legs and for a very reasonable price!

We used this twice during our weekend stay in Sydney. And were happy with both our journeys - clean, comfortable and on time. Its not first class but it gets to your destination in reasonable time and no hassle.

Tried this since it was recommended by a friend. Opal card works on light rails as well, just remember to tap on and off, since there are no turnstiles. Overall light rail was good. Mostly on time. However, what I didn't like was the light...More
