Train from Wynyard Station to Sydney Olympic Park

I am visiting in September and would like to know how I go about catching a train from Wynyard Station to Sydney Olympic Park. Does the train go there non-stop and how long would it take. Any help would be appreciated.

Sorry, can't give any advice as I've only done the trip for special events.

This timetable might help, though

The stops depend on the day and time you are travelling and if there is a special event on. Direct trains to Wynyard are rare. Try 131500.com.au for timetable info.

Easiest way is just get the train direct from Wynyard to Lidcombe. Change and follow the signs to the Sprint platform at Lidcombe for a direct train to Olympic Park.

So just change trains once. One ticket covers the entire journey.

Trains from Wynyard to Lidcome run every 5 minutes or so. Trains from Lidcome to Olympic park run every 15 minutes or so, so you shouldn't need a timetable.

The express train goes from platform 3 at Wynyard. Check the indicator boards, around 2 out of 3 trains on platform 3 go to Lidcombe.

The arrangement of platforms at Lidcome is weird. You have to walk the length of platform to get to the separate platform to get the Olympic Park train. Follow the signs, don't get confused, and don't exit through the barriers or you will lose your ticket.

Around 33 or 38 minutes on a weekday afternoon, according to www.131500.info A little longer on a weekend

That website is great for working out train journeys. Easy to use and gives you train/train and train/bus/ferry connections.

Rougly half an hour from Wynyard to Lidcombe. Around 5 minutes on the train from Lidcombe to Olympic Park. Could expect to wait up to 5 minutes at Wynyard and 15 minutes at Lidcombe depending on your luck.

If you're going to a major event, it's a lot quicker to change at Central Station for a direct train to Olympic Park - check the CityRail timetable closer to the date if this is the case.

Thank you, I'm not sure if the Australian Dance Festival is classified as a major event, but I will check the timetable closer to time.
