In Sydney

Hotel

There is a local rowing event the same weekend as our wedding, so we're planning accommodation well in advance!

We have booked a block of rooms at Quest Penrith (map, website), the hotel is otherwise booked out.

The hotel is walking distance to shopping, food, and breweries. It's about 25 minute drive from the wedding location.

Other Accommodation Options

- Springwood options include a hotel above a bar, or a motel. Either is a 30 - 40 minute walk / 5 minute drive to their home. There are also a decent number of AirBnB options in the area.

Transportation

We'll organize transport from Penrith to the wedding location, details will be sent closer to the wedding date. If you're interested in this, please reach out. If you'd like to make the trip on your own, it's about a 25 minute drive to the wedding location.

Penrith Station (see transit directions from Central Station in Sydney) is about an hour on the express train from central Sydney, so only drive if you feel comfortable with it!

Getting to Sydney from USA

Flights

We monitored flight prices across the year, and the best time to buy a flight to Sydney from the USA

for February was between September and the end of November. You'll usually connect through SFO or LAX.

It's around 16 hour flight time from LAX or SFO to SYD.

Passport and Visa

You need a valid passport and a visa to go to Australia. The visa application is done online, and
has a AUD $20 application fee. Most cases it's approved immediately, but you should do this before you book your flight. Your passport must be valid when you apply for the visa and an additional 6 months after your travel date.
