Australian National Maritime Museum


The museum is a 20–30 minute walk from Town Hall and Central Stations. Walk over the Pyrmont Bridge if you’re coming from Town Hall, or stroll through China Town and Darling Harbour if you’re coming from Central.


If you are coming from the eastern suburbs of Sydney you can catch the 389 bus from North Bondi.  If you are coming from Circular Quay (where many hotels are located) you can take a ferry or put on your walking shoes and enjoy a 30-35 minute walk.


The museum is ideally situated to take advantage of Sydney’s developing network of cross-city bike lanes and harbour-side cycleways.  If you’re riding through the CBD there are cycle lanes on College St, Park St, Kent St and King St. A shared bike-pedestrian ramp leads from King St across Pyrmont Bridge directly to the museum. Many cyclists travel in from Centennial Park and Moore Park, the Harbour Bridge, Chinatown or around the inner harbour from Jubilee Park to Glebe Point or across the Anzac Bridge. See Ride the City (enter Sydney) for more information.


Sydney Ferries' Route F4 services Darling Harbour Loop runs approximately every half hour and stops at the Pyrmont Bay Wharf (next to the museum), Circular Quay Wharf 5, Milson’s Point, McMahon’s Point, Balmain and Darling Harbour’s  King Street Wharf (5 minutes walk over Pyrmont Bay Bridge to the museum).

The Parramatta Rivercat Route F3 calls at Darling Harbour’s King Street Wharf (5 minutes walk over Pyrmont Bay Bridge to the museum).
