George Street

George Street is a popular street located in Sydney’s central business district. The street’s popularity can be traced back to the fact that it is the city’s original high street.

As such, it remains one of the busiest streets in the CBD.

George Street stretches for 3kms, and is an important connection between some of the main buildings in the city. It also serves as an important link between the different precincts within the CBD. Another fascinating feature of this street is that it has the most rise buildings than any other street across the country. Out of Australia’s top listed companies, a good number of them are on this street.

The street starts at the far north end of the city at The Rocks; an iconic attraction in the bustling city. Its proximity to the Sydney Harbour Bridge makes it a perfect place to start a tour around the town. From The Rocks, the street stretches to the southern end of the city close to Central Station.

Central Station is at the heart of railway transport in the state. From the station, the street leads to Railway Square. At this point, Broadway forms a continuity of the street where it leads to the city’s western region; then referred to as Parramatta Road.

In addition to The Rocks and Railway Square, George Street is also a common feature in other notable precincts. Chinatown is one of the precincts and is home to an array of retail shops and restaurants that bring the Chinese culture to life. The street is also featured in the Cinema District, whose strategic location overlooking Chinatown affords excellent views of the region. Other precincts along George Street include the Town Hall and Wynyard.

The street also provides easy access to main railway stations; including Central Railway Station, Town Hall underground station and Circular Quay Station.
