Getting Around in Sydney | Public Transport

Getting Around in Sydney | Public Transport

Sydney is a massive city! There is no way that you can walk everywhere. Of course, you can hop in a taxi or Uber, but you can only do that if you are made from gold. Getting from the city to Bondi Beach, for example, will cost you (With Uber) $51,00. That is a waste of money if you ask me.

The most effective way to get around a foreign city is public transportation.  Sydney has an extensive and pretty reliable bus, train and ferry services which won’t cost you an arm and a leg.  In order to ride the public transportation system, you need to get yourself an Opal Card.

In this post, I will show you how to explore Sydney using these opal cards!
