The Sydney Central Business District ( CBD) is the historic and principal commercial hub that is located in Sydney. Sydney CBD is Sydney’s city centre, also known as Sydney City, and both terms are used.
The Sydney city centre extends to the south for approximately 3 km starting from Sydney Cove. The city centre is also the site of the first European invasion where it was that the greater Sydney area was established. Because of its central role in the early modern history of Australia the region is one of the most earliest established regions.
Geographically the north-south line extends starting from Circular Quay in the north and ends at Central Railway Station to the south.
Its east-west axis is a parkland chain which includes Hyde Park, The Domain, Royal Botanic Gardens and Farm Cove on Sydney Harbour in the east up to Darling Harbour and the Western Distributor in the west.
Sydney CBD is home to many of the biggest Australian businesses and serves the Asia-Pacific (APAC) headquarters for numerous multinational corporations. The financial services sector particularly occupies the majority of the office space available on the north east side.
Getting around & Transport
Sydney’s CBD is served with commuter railway, light rail bus, as well as ferry transportation.
We regularly catch public transport around the city centre or just walk to photoshoots as the CBD is fairly flat compared to many cities.
For fun and exercise we ride our pushbikes all over the city using some of the bike lanes or comfortably riding on the many streets that are closed to motor vehicle.
St James station It is one of the underground stations within the CBD. Sydney’s primary train hub for commuters is Central Railway Station (“Central”) Central Station, situated to the South of Haymarket. CBD located in Haymarket
From Central there is a mostly underground CBD rail loop that is accessible from both directions via Central that serves 5 CBD stations (Town Hall, Wynyard, Circular Quay, St James and Museum). The loop is known by the name of City Circle.
Sydney Ferries operate mostly out of Circular Quay, located on the northern side of the CBD. There are numerous wharves (directly below the elevated Circular Quay commuter rail station) and Wharf 3 being the only one that operates only from Manly. There are ferry services from the western part to the western edge of CBD in Barangaroo.
