Public transport to Australian Catholic University - North Sydney Campus

By train

The North Sydney Train Station is on the busy Northern and North Shore train lines. You will need to get off at North Sydney Station, and we recommend that you use the City Rail Trip Planner.

North Sydney Campus is an easy walk from the North Sydney Station. To get there, walk through the Greenwood Plaza and up the escalators until you come out at the Miller Street and Pacific Highway intersection. From there turn left up Mount Street and then right down Edward Street.

By bus

Many bus services to North Sydney stop at Blues Street; adjacent to the station, or on the Pacific Highway. Use the Sydney Buses Trip Planner to plan your bus journey to the campus.

Tickets

My Multi 1 is a ticket that you can use on trains, buses and light rail in the inner city zone, which is where the conference is being held. It is a 7 day pass and costs $AUD46. For further details and a map, visit http://www.sydneytrains.info/tickets/pdf/mymulti_fare_map.pdf .

At the airport, purchase your My Multi 1 first and then ask for an Airport Gate Pass for $AUD12.60 which takes you into the city directly (the first sector is a private line, hence the additional charge).
