Where you'll be

The tour will start at Darling Harbour where we'll see ghost stations of the Sydney Monorail. Light rail will take us to Central Station to explore the grand building and hear about a battle fought there in 1916. After a quick train trip to Circular Quay, we'll board a ferry under the Harbour Bridge to Barangaroo and walk up to Wynyard under the CBD. Finally, we'll take a bus to Railway Square and walk the Goods Line back to where we began.
