Next to St Vincent De Pauls
We are 6 minutes by bus from Town Hall station. Catch any of the numerous buses (500-550) on George Street from Circular Quay traveling away from the city. The best bus stop is located on Druitt Street (next to the Town Hall Bldg) which runs down toward Darling Harbour between the Town Hall and the QVB building. Ask the driver to stop at Darling Street. We are near the corner of Victoria Road approx 100 meters from the bus stop.
Look for number 677 Darling St and press the doorbell next to the red door!
