Planning your trip to the SMSA
The NSW Government is transforming Sydney through multiple Major Projects in 2016-2017, including the construction of a new Light Rail. There will be an impact on travel into and in Sydney with Public Transport changes and road closures in place on sections of George Street.
Read our tips on how to plan your visit to the SMSA and Tom Keneally Centre with minimum disruptions.
The nearest train station is either Town Hall or Museum, depending on which line you are travelling.
Park St Buses – Get off at Town Hall or QVB
Elizabeth St buses – Get off at Hyde Park opposite Bathurst St
For further assistance with trip planning, please refer to the Transport NSW website.
Although there is some on-street metered parking available in surrounding streets, most visitors to the Sydney Mechanics’ School of Arts find it is more convenient to use a nearby parking station.
