I am planning my up coming visit to Sydney (April 7-14) and have read different posts about Multi passes and 555 bus (free). I will be staying at Mantra on Kent and I plan on using public transport (buses & ferries) while visiting the following in Sydney: Bondi, Manly, Watson's bay and the usual touristy places in Sydney (Chinatown, Darling harbour, CBD, Circular Quay, Opera house, The Rocks etc). I also plan on going to the Blue Mountains, but with a tour.
My questions are: Which option would be the best one ? I read about Multi 1 pass (prices around $21 for daily pass but from older posts not sure if price is accurate) and the option to buy a daily pass & a weekly pass. Would anyone know what the costs are ? Am I better off using the 555 free bus ? I know the 555 bus doesn't include the ferries but really trying to see which option would be best.
Also, where would I be able to purchase the Daily/weekly pass (I understand from reading previous posts that this does include the ferries to Manly & Bondi) near Mantra on Kent if that is the best option ?
Thanks for your help !
