Sydney's underground railway, commonly referred to as the City Circle, provides an easy and inexpensive way of moving around the main city area.
The underground network serves as a loop around the central business district, connecting Central Station with subway stations at Town Hall, Wynyard, Circular Quay, St James and Museum, with trains continuing on to the suburban network. Trains also pass through the loop (via Wynyard) to cross the Sydney harbour Bridge and access the northern surburbs.
Because many of Sydney's main tourist destinations and attractions are situated in this vicinity, the Circle represents the ideal way of getting around.
You can get to Darling Harbour, a former dockside harbour that has been transformed into a major tourist spot, Circular Quay, the hub of ferry transport on Sydney Harbour, and The Rocks, the founding point for settlement in Australia and now a vibrant tourist region. There are six stations that form the main City Circle underground railway. They are (running clockwise): Central Railway Station, Townhall, Wynyard, Circular Quay, St James and Museum.
A rail line links the CBD to Kings Cross and Sydney's eastern suburbs with an underground railway station at Martin Plaza, in the heart of the CBD's financial district. The link terminates at Bondi Junction, which is several kilometres short of Bondi Beach.
