How to Get There:

It’s easy to go to the Sydney Tower since it is visible from almost all areas of Sydney’s central business district. If you take the train the closest station to the tower is St. James. Once you emerge from the long tunnel leading out of station, you’ll find yourself on Elizabeth Street – cross the street and walk straight ahead on Market Street up to Westfield Center, a mall on the right side of the road. At the 5th level you will find the Sky Tower ticket booth.
