"Monorail or Monotonous Rail" The Monorail Tip by pugwashman

The Monorail, Sydney: 3 reviews and 2 photos

  Monorail at Darling Harbour
by pugwashman

If you are staying at a hotel next to a station then I guess there is some point to this, but if not do yourself a favour and just take a picture of it as it passes overhead. We made the mistake of buying a Supervoucher day pass, but only because it went past our hotel and you get a book of vouchers for places we were planning on visitting. It basically does a loop that takes in Darling Harbour, the AMP Tower and ... well to be frank not alot more, and as you can walk from Darling Harbour in about 5 minutes there really is little point.

Unique Suggestions: If you do go on this, make sure you do the full loop. It will only take about 15 minutes in total and at least you can say you've done it ... not that anyone will care. The discounts though are good for things like the Aquarium and Seacat rides, so we still saved money as a result.

Fun Alternatives: Walk.
