How do I get to and from campus?

Macquarie's campus is just 15 kilometres from Sydney's city centre, in one of the Southern Hemisphere's largest business and technology precincts.

When you first land in Sydney, we will be there to greet you at the airport and take you to your designated accommodation.

Once you've arrived, you'll discover that Sydney's public transport system is safe, efficient and easy to use. Macquarie University even has its own train station, while bus routes directly connect the campus to popular Sydney destinations including world-famous beaches such as Bondi and Manly.
