Making Sydney more accessible

Your accessibility guide to the city centre

Sydney currently has a range of accessible services to allow as many people as possible to make their way around the city centre.

You'll find an accessibility map of the city centre under Downloads below. This accessibility map includes the location of toilets, ATMs, public telephones and parking spaces. Public transport options are also marked on the map. Steep hills are marked to assist you in getting around.

Sydney For All

Access maps for other areas, including The Rocks, Sydney Opera House, Royal Botanic Gardens and Darling Harbour, are available on the Sydney For All website.

Accessible Sydney app

The Accessible Sydney iPhone app helps people of all ages with disability and their families to enjoy our city.

You can also download the lite version.
