Travel & Accommodation – HETSA Conference, 2015
Sydney Airport is the closest, and has a train station, buses and taxis for onward travel.
The Jetcat ferry from Circualr Quay in central Sydney to Parramatta is a beautiful way to get to the city, you will pass the Opera House, go under the Harbour Bridge then see a lot of the harbour.
Train to Parramatta is boring but faster than the ferry.
Bus may be convenient as Parramatta is the bus hub for western Sydney.
