The conference venue is approximately 2.5km from Coogee Beach.
Allow 40 mins to walk up Coogee Bay Road to the Central Lecture Block. Enter the UNSW campus at Gate 9 off High Street (Grid Reference B24). Note that the walk is quite steep and can be hot in the sun.
A taxi trip will take approximately 10 mins. Ask to be dropped off at Gate 8 off High Street (Grid Reference A20). Cost will be approximately A$15.
The 370 Sydney Bus service travels from Coogee Beach to the University of Sydney via UNSW (see map). These take approximately 10 mins to reach UNSW and depart every 10-15 mins. Alight just after the Botany Street/High Street intersection (Grid Reference B26).
The campus is located approximately 10km from the International Terminal. The Domestic terminal is a little closer to UNSW. Travel time is about 20-30 mins by car.
If carrying bags or you are in a hurry, please take a taxi to UNSW. Ask to be dropped off at Gate 8 off High Street (Grid Reference A20). The fare will be about A$30.
If you have time, the 400 Sydney Bus service is a cheap alternative (see map). These buses operate on a 20 min frequency (approximately) and may take 45 mins to reach the High Street/Botany Street intersection (Grid Reference B26).
The campus is approximately 5km from Hyde Park in the city. Numerous buses travel up Oxford Street and along Anzac Parade to UNSW. See the UNSW Bus Services guide for a list of services and bus stops around campus. The Sydney Buses website provides maps and timetables.
Bus tickets should be pre-purchased if possible. Journeys are charged according to the number of sections travelled. Common trip distances and single trip tickets (purchased on the bus) are:
Note: Use the timetable for the 370 to have a rough idea when the bus should come. It is best to be 5-10 mins early though, as Sydney buses are notoriously bad at sticking to a timetable! The trip can take up to 1 hour from Coogee. A taxi may therefore be better. The cost will be about $25.
