George Street stretches for 3kms, and is a key 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 located on this street.
The street starts off 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 off 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 and is 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 Wynward.
