Discover the Hidden Wonders of Sydney Central Station - Cya On The Road

Central Station is the oldest and largest railway station in Australia, and the hub of the Sydney Trains’ network. But it’s also a stunning example of architecture and design that reflects the history and culture of Sydney.

On this Sydney Central Station Self-Guided Audio Tour, you’ll uncover some of the fascinating facts and stories that make this place so special. For instance:

· Did you know that Central Station is actually the third station to be built on this site since 1855? The current station opened in 1906 and was designed to wow visitors with its majestic facade and spacious hall.

· Have you ever noticed the sandstone clock tower that rises above the station? It was added in 1921 and became a symbol of Central Station. It’s 85.6 metres high and has four clock faces that can be seen from miles away. Well, they used to, before the city skyscrapers blocked the view.

· Do you want to climb up the 302 steps inside the clock tower and see the clock faces up close? You can’t, sorry. But you can peek through the windows of the tower and imagine what it’s like.
