Can you store your luggage at the airport?
Luggage storage is available at both the domestic and international airports. This is the best option on a short layover but also if you are travelling on a domestic flight, and you are planning to head straight to your flight home after your travels.
Smarte Carte operates a luggage storage service at both international and domestic airports. 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. It’s not a bad option if you’re arriving at 6 am, as it’s little sacrifice and very secure.
Can you store your luggage at the train station?
Sydney now has luggage storage at its intercity train station, Central Station. Passengers travelling on NSW trains can usually check luggage in early (free) in the morning for a later departure that day but if you are not going on a Country train that day you cannot access early check-in.
Can you store your luggage near Circular Quay?
Yes, there are two options.
There is luggage storage in the Rocks at the Visitors Centre for cruise passengers only at Sydney Visitor Centre Luggage Storage 10-26 Playfair Street, The Rocks. You can pre-book on their website. The second is a Smart Carte outlet at 43 Playfair Street which is open to all travellers.
Are there any luggage storage near Town Hall Station?
If you are looking for somewhere to store your bags near the centre of the city, then BagBNB in Bathurst street is worth checking out. This company operates on an Airbnb style model where small businesses sign up to be a bag angel and provide safe bag storage
“A community of businesses varying in sizes provides our luggage storage services. These can be in the form of a bar, a cafe, a bike rental etc. At BAGBNB, we call them our Angels. We verify absolutely all Angels. This particular operation in Town Hall has really good reviews and at only $8 a day is one of the cheaper options in the city. There are also outlets in Surry Hills, Bondi, Darling Harbour, Kings Cross and Museum Station.
What is the long-term luggage storage solution?
The cheapest long-term storage I have found is at CBD Storage at World Square Shopping Centre. These guys only charge $33 a month, and the daily cost is $11. You can also use this service short term.
Are there any lockers that are accessible 24 hours a day?
Yes, again at World Square shopping centre CBD have lockers measuring 1m x 1m x 1m that you can book for up to one year! Prices start at $24 a day so they are not the cheapest short-term option but if you are arriving in Sydney outside business hours this is probably a good bet. Weekly rates are much better at $35 per week and $77 per month
Who would you recommend?
CBD Storage has also been around for years and is great value if your stuff will fit into the space they offer.
