Arrival and Local Travel

Novotel Sydney Central is located in Central Sydney, close to the Central Railway Station, Darling Harbour, Chinatown, and Sydney's Central Business District (known locally as the "CBD"). The hotel is about 10km from Sydney International Airport (also known as Kingsford Smith Airport).

Transportation from the airport to the conference hotel is possible via train, taxi, or rental car. The easiest option is to take the Airport Link train from the airport to the Central railway station. The train stops both at the domestic and international terminals. The train ride takes approximately 10-12 minutes; timetable and fare information is available at the Trip Information page. The hotel is located 500m from Central station.

Alternately, a taxi from the airport to the hotel should take around 20-25 minutes and cost approximately 40 AUD.
