Travel by train or tram
If you are coming from Central Station to our Sydney office, the closest accessible exit is Exit 6 – Chalmers Street (from the Devonshire Street Tunnel, also known as the South Concourse). There is also the accessible Exit 4 – Elizabeth Street available from the North Concourse, or if you’re coming from the tram stop, you can use the lift in the Grand Concourse to get to Eddy Avenue.
Travel by bus
If your bus goes down Elizabeth St, get off at the Devonshire St bus stop to get to the PWDA Sydney office. We are right around the corner! Other buses stop a few blocks away on Cleveland St or Foveaux St. If your bus stops at Railway Square, on the other side of Central Station, the easiest route across the station is through the Devonshire Street Tunnel. Once you exit the tunnel, please note that Devonshire St is uphill.
