By public transport from the centre of Sydney, take a train on the Illawarra (Blue) line to Mortdale.
This line begins in the east at Bondi Junction and passes through Kings Cross
before heading south at Central. You can most easily catch this train from
either platform 25 at Central, or platform 4 at Town Hall: Make sure the
indicator light is lit against “Mortdale” to signify the train
will stop there
A pleasant twenty-minute walk from Mortdale station will
bring you to our shop—please use the map below. Or you can catch a number 944 bus to Punchbowl and alight at the
golf course roundabout. Follow Lorraine Street to the right, and when you
reach the small park our shop is in the industrial complex opposite. Taxis
are also readily available at the station if you prefer, and will cost about
$8—the buses only depart every half hour or so, and in the warmer weather
of summer the walk is only for the fit.
For travelers arriving from the airport, a taxi is best. The trip takes at
least 15 or 20 minutes and costs from $35 to $60 depending on the terminal
and the traffic conditions which vary according to time of day. There is
a rail link from Domestic and International Terminals: You can purchase
a ticket to Mortdale, but check the platform indicators because you probably
need to change trains at Wolli Creek station.
