Luggage storage in Sydney has been hard to find and rather expensive for years, but in the last few years, several players have popped up to offer luggage storage locations across the city.If you are staying in a holiday rental, it’s hard to check in early, and finding luggage storage becomes one of the first challenges you face on arriving in Sydney.
The Rideshare of Luggage Storage – How does it work?
Since 2020, companies have developed luggage storage apps that let you find luggage storage based on your location. These luggage storage platforms have partnered with local businesses such as hotels, cafes, and souvenir shops to create short-term luggage storage facilities.
The storage partner locations are selected based on their accessibility to top attractions and the security they can provide for your belongings. Many of their luggage storage locations have extended hours; some are open 24/7.
For added security, all bookings must be made online, ensuring a documented history of your reservations. This not only allows you to secure your spot in advance but also eliminates concerns about currency conversion rates.
A popular luggage storage network in Sydney is Bounce, which is the largest luggage storage platform in the world. With 40 convenient storage locations in Sydney alone, Bounce boasts a global network of 10,000 baggage storage spots across over 2,000 cities worldwide.
Can you store your luggage at the airport?
Smarte Carte operates the luggage storage service at both international and domestic airports. This luggage storage costs between $12-$20 per bag per day. It’s the best option for spending some time in the city before transferring to a domestic flight after your short Sydney layover.
Although it’s a 20-minute train ride in each direction, at least your luggage is already there, and should there be any sudden change of plans; you can rush back to the airport without lugging your bags around.
Can you store your luggage at Sydney Train Stations?
Sydney now has luggage storage at its intercity station, Central Train Station. This service can be used by anyone, you don’t need a train ticket to access it. It is located in the front corner of the Grand Concourse (the heritage looking main hall).
Passengers travelling on NSW trains can usually check luggage in early (free) in the morning for a later departure that day.

If the luggage lockers at the station are full or there’s a long line. Bounce has two popular storage spots within a five-minute walk from the station.
Where can you store your luggage near Circular Quay?
A popular question for those of you heading off on the many cruise ships that visit Sydney each year. Yes, there are a few options. Bounce is your best option at Circular Quay with an outlet on the ferry wharf between Wharf 3 & 4 where the Manly Ferry pulls in.
Is there any luggage storage near Town Hall Station?
Bounce also has locations right by Town Hall station. You can book online here. It costs $8.00 per day for each bag stored no matter the size, and includes protection for up to $10,000. They are adding new vetted hotels and shops across the city, so there will be even more choices soon.
What is the long-term luggage storage solution?
Another option for long-term storage I have found is at CBD Storage at World Square Shopping Centre. Alternatively, you can also make a long-term storage reservation with Bounce. They have a 24/7 customer support team that can coordinate your long-term storage requests. This could be a better option if you’re looking for storage for a week or two.
Are there any lockers that are accessible 24 hours a day?
Sydney Storage Lockers also in World Square in the centre of the city are open 24/7. Their lockers are a generous 1m x 1m x 1m. The cost is from $24 per day, $44 per week and $77 per month.
