Located just 2km from the city, one of the great benefits of living in Pyrmont is that you can experience the village feel of Pyrmont, yet you are only minutes from the city.

There are many ways in which to reach the city. Here are some of the many modes of transport:

Walk: 10 – 20 minutes, Free

Walk across Pyrmont Bridge, taking in superb views of the city ahead, Darling Harbour on your right and the gorgeous Sydney Harbour to the left. In fact, the latest ABS statistics show that 35% of Pyrmont residents walk to work of which I expect the majority are to jobs in the city.
