PUBLIC TRANSPORT 

For traveling in Sydney, public transport is the best option. To ride the trains, buses and ferries you will need an Opal card. An Opal card is similar to a pre-paid credit card you load value onto and pay as you go for use across all modes of public transport. 

Event Cinemas: closest train station is Town Hall Station. 

UTS: closest train station is is Central Station. 

Barangaroo Reserve: closest stations are Circular Quay and Wynyard. You can then follow the walking directions to Barangaroo Reserve, Walumil Lawns, entrance from Towns Place.

To plan your trip and learn more about Opal tickets visit: www.transportnsw.info or download the opal app.

 

TAXIS AND UBER 

Uber is a great way to get around Sydney, it’s usually half the price of a taxi fare – for more details and to download the app visit: www.uber.com Uber now has a Sydney Airport pick up area. 

 

PARKING 

Event Cinemas: Parking is available 24 hours at Centro Cinema Centre Parking, for cinema entry from 521 Kent Street or from Sussex Street (near cnr of Bathurst). Cost between $13-55/day. 

UTS: Parking is available at Interpark Australia on Thomas Street, the lifts come out in Building 11. Maximum of $27/day closes at 10pm. There is also parking close by at Wilson Parking 169-179 Thomas Street, near the ABC with a five minute walk to UTS. 

Barangaroo Reserve: Wilson Parking operates a public car park beneath Barangaroo Reserve. The car park provides 300 car spaces, including eight accessible parking spaces on level B1. The car park entrance and exit is via Towns Place and it operates between 6:00am – midnight, seven days per week. Please allow extra travel time if driving to Barangaroo Reserve. This is due to changes to the road network in the CBD.

 

WALKING 

 

The walk from UTS to Event Cinemas, George Street is around 21 minutes down one road. At the bend into Central, Broadway becomes George Street. If catching a taxi be aware that there is major construction on George Street which may result in delays and difficulties stopping directly outside the cinema. 

 

 

 

The walking routes from either Wynyard Station or Circular Quay to Barangaroo Reserve are similar in time and distance roughly 1km, 15 minute walk.
