My husband and I will be traveling to Sydney a couple days before New Years and are staying in North Ryde. First...is North Ryde a nice/safe city? Secondly, what is the best way to get to North Ryde from the Sydney Airport? We arrive at about 6:30am and will have a couple big luggages (i pack a lot sometimes. haha). Please let me if you think if we are better off taking cabs to/from the Sydney Airport. Also...how long will that drive be?
