How to get to Balmain from the CBD

  • Bus:
    • Sydney Buses operate several routes that connect Sydney CBD to Balmain. Buses may vary, so check the latest routes and schedules on the Transport for NSW website or app. The 441 and 442 route travels from the QVB to Balmain. Buses are also an easy way to get from one end of Darling Street at Balmain East to the other end in Rozelle. Regular bus stops are places throughout Darling Street.

      Travelling to Balmain from:
      Ryde: 500X or 501 bus
