Cheaper than chips
No, you did not read the title incorrectly; it is true unlimited Ferry, trains, light rail and buses for only $2.50!
It is extremely hard to believe that you can get all day long unlimited public transport, especially in Sydney; well it is time to believe it and experience it.
Every Sunday, New South Wales transforms into a day filled with adventure and new experiences without worrying about the cost of public transport, finding a carpark and the expense of petrol and of course breaking the bank. Especially if you are on a budget. There are no more excuses on why you cannot explore this beautiful state!
The unlimited ticket is not restricted to just Sydney, you are able to use the ticket to see some parts of the state, by ferry, bus and train all day long and as many times as you like.
Some of the locations include Blue Mountains, where you can get a train to Katoomba, Leura or any other train station in the Blue Mountains region, then jump onto a local bus and start exploring the mystical beauty that the region offers.
If beaches are more of your thing, why not get the train up to the Central Coast and start the 'beach hunt' journey from breathtaking Terrigal to The Entrance.
Maybe island hopping is something you had in mind, catch the train or bus to Circular quay jump onto the ferries and make it a mission to stop at every wharf! Or if you wanted something away from the city, head up to the beautiful Palm Beach and do ferry hopping from there...
Circular Quay is the perfect starting point for ferry trips...
Avoid the annoyance of the traffic and experience Parramatta in a different perspective with an hour long ferry ride from Circular Quay and relax on one of the open decks as your admire Parramatta River.
If you plan to have a relaxing day out, then why not head to the Hunter and try out some wines or maybe head down south to Wollongong and do the Lighthouse to Lighthouse Walk.
The options are endless on what to do, and another beauty of this all day pass is it can be used till 4am the following morning, so you are not restricted on times, therefore, more time to enjoy.
If Sunday is not suitable, no worries, you can still get the unlimited all day pass for $15 with the Opal card or $23 tickets- still a bargain!
