Trackwork

Trackwork is taking place from 02:00 Saturday 27 October to 02:00 Monday 29 October and may affect how you travel to and from the event:

  • T3 Bankstown Line: Buses replace trains between Lidcombe and Bankstown.
  • Central Coast & Newcastle Line: Buses replace trains between Wyong and Hornsby.

To note: As of Sunday 30 September, the Epping to Chatswood rail line has temporarily closed for upgrades for around 7 months before Sydney Metro Northwest services begin in 2019. The new high-frequency bus service, Station Link, replaces trains between Epping and Chatswood. For more information on Station Link, visit transportnsw.info.

Trackwork is carried out on an ongoing basis to maintain the safety, reliability, and efficiency of the Sydney Trains network. Trackwork may affect how you travel to and from events. For train service disruption information, check travel alerts or plan your trip using the Trip Planner.

Many regular bus services stop at Martin Place which is within walking distance of the Domain including:

  • Route 343 from Chatswood
  • Route 333 from Bondi
  • Route 423 from Enmore.

For bus service disruption information, check travel alerts or plan your trip using the Trip Planner.

Services run regularly to Circular Quay and the wharves are within walking distance of The Domain. Sydney Ferries services are very popular and may reach capacity, especially on weekends.

For ferry service disruption information, check travel alerts or plan your trip using the Trip Planner.

From 00:30, Saturday 27 October until 06:00, Monday 29 October, buses will replace Light rail services between Central and Dulwich Hill in both directions to allow for essential trackwork. For more information, visit transportnsw.info.

Due to access constraints, buses are unable to safely stop or pick up at Capitol Square, Exhibition Centre (running towards Dulwich Hill) and Pyrmont Bay light rail stops. Customers needing to access these stops will need to do so by foot, the nearest stops are within short walking distance.

For light rail service disruption information, check travel alerts or plan your trip using the Trip Planner.

Due to multiple events taking place around The Royal Botanic Gardens, some roads around the park including Mrs Macquaries Road will be closed to help with crowd safety during the day.
