Where to stay?

Travelodge Wynyard is the recommended accommodation choice for summit delegates.

The hotel is right beside a convenient train stop direct from Sydney airport, Wynyard station and conveniently located in the central business district. If you arrive by train from the airport, and get off at Wynyard station, take the York Street exit, go up the wooden escalators, and turn left when you head out of the station. A 1 minute walk will get you to the hotel.

A 10 minute walk from the hotel will take delegates to the State Library of New South Wales. Easy reach to cafes, bars and transport, and easy walking to harbour views. More..

Where is the Summit being held?

The Summit is being hosted by the State Library of New South Wales. The State Library is on Macquarie Street, along from Hyde Park, and right next to the Botanic Gardens.

How to get around?

There are plenty of transport services information for Sydney CBD and beyond. Sydneysiders and visitors use an Opal card to get around on public transport buses, trains, and ferries. The easiest and cheapest way to get from Sydney international airport to the city is by train: Airport Link. It is possible to buy a ticket with a credit card or cash at the airport station. The route takes you directly into the city, to the Central Station, and onto Wynyard (the Travelodge Wynyard is right above the Wynyard train station). More..
