Central Station information
Sydney’s main railway station was built in 1906 on top of an old convent and cemetery (watch out for ghosts). The 75m Gothic clock tower was added 15 years later. The main sandstone concourse has an impressive vaulted roof and is the terminus for intercity and country trains. Suburban trains chug into the outdoor platforms downstairs on the Surry Hills side.
As you’re pulling into Central from the south, look for the ornate disused Mortuary Station (1869) on your left.
