Circular Quay, railway station and ferry wharves

A view of Circular Quay Railway Station and the Circular Quay Ferry Wharves. Circular Quay is a major Sydney transport hub, with a large ferry, rail and bus interchange. The railway station, built in 1956, is on the City Circle line servicing a number of City Rail services. The ferry wharves are a terminal for Sydney Ferries services. The Cahill Expressway runs above the railway platforms, linking the Sydney Harbour Bridge with the Eastern Distributor.

  1. I love your posts - terrific photos as well as keeping me in touch with my favourite city where our daughter and family lives. I went on the Manly ferry last December when we were visiting from the UK - hooray! Want to ask you some Qs about the Overseas Passenger Terminal - but will do that later.

  4. It'd be nice to have transportation alternatives. Here you can drive your car, fly on a plane, walk, or ride your bike.

  5. Good stuff! I can't help but think of Circular Quay as the "real" Sydney. I am inspired to post a photo of me there in 1939/40.

  12. I see Sydney has cats as well. I wonder if they're made by the same people who make ours.

  14. Jossie, the apartments are relatively new, They were completed in 2003 and were quite a controversial development at the quay.

    Bill, they are known as the Rivercats in Sydney because they travel up the Parramatta River.
