The Australian Museum is located on the corner of College Street and William Street in central Sydney, just across the road from Hyde Park and opposite St.Mary's Cathedral.


The nearest train stations are St.James, Museum and Town Hall. Each are of equal distance to us and are an easy and mostly level seven minute walk.

If you have a stroller or wheelchair, please note that your journey through Hyde Park will end in stairs at each of the Museum corners on College/Park Streets. Level exit is available at the St. Mary's Cathedral pedestrian crossing if coming from St. James Station and at the corner of College and Liverpool Streets if coming from Museum Station.


For bus services arriving in the city centre, alight near Town Hall or the Queen Victoria Building and simply walk east along Park Street towards Kings Cross - a 7 to 10 minute walk.
