1. Re: Smartvisit Card

Hello,

I've seen this Smartvisit card thingo before and I think you should really consider carefully how you would use it. Personally, I don't think the prices are good value - $149 for two days seems just a bit ridiculous. Certainly, the card gives you access to many things for free, but I would have to ask: how many of those things would I realistically do in the time period? Also, remember that many of the best Sydney things are actually free - the Gardens, the beaches, the national parks etc etc.

As for transport - the information on the Smartvisit card website (seesydneycard.com/pages_menuitems/transport.…) is out of date. The information there referrs to 'Travel Pass' zones and the like, which were abolished in early April of this year. The new (slightly simpler) ticketing system is called the 'MyZone' system - see here for details http://www.myzone.nsw.gov.au The Smartvisit card transport coverage would appear to be no more extensive than a MyMulti3 ticket. An adult MyMulti3 ticket costs $57 for seven days. The Smartvisit card transport supplement for seven days, according to the pricing figures on the website, is $64.

Given the information on the Smartvisit card website transport section cited above, the transport supplement on the Smartvisit card would not appear to cover the full cost of train transport to/from the airport. But given the information on that page is out of date anyway, you'd best check directly with them.

My conclusion: if I were in your shoes, I'd just buy a MyMulti transport ticket (MyMulti3 if you want to go to the Blue Mountains, MyMulti1 if you're just going to stay in the CBD and costal area) and pay for admissions to places as I go along.

Hope that helps; happy planning!
