You will need to apply for an Opal card for Sydney’s ferries, buses, trains and light rail—or further
afield to Central Coast, the Illawarra, or Blue Mountains or apply for a go card for Bribane’s ferries,
buses, trains and light rail (International Students in Brisbane are eligible to apply for a concession
card). This means you will load Australian money onto your card to pay-as-you-go through the gate
when entering and then tap again when exiting.

Uber. is quite an effective way to get around, with less cost than a taxi. Just download the app, set up a profile with credit card, and choose the type of booking you need dependant on your budget and concerns. It is easy.

Ferries. Sydney is separated by a huge body of water, so Sydney Ferries provide an enjoyable way to get about. Take a train to Circular Quay and set off for the Parramatta River, Manly, Double Bay, Mosman, Taronga Zoo, Balmain, Cockatoo Island or Darling Harbour. Ferry services operate daily, until midnight.

Rent a car. There are several hire car companies (Avis, Budget, Europcar, Sixt, etc) if you want to pick a car up at the airport or city and go to your accommodation and get familiar with the city roads. From $55 per day plus insurance.
