Luggage storage in Sydney has been hard to find and rather expensive for years but recently a new company has launched in Sydney. Stasher.com have locations across the city where you can store your bag. They charge $8 for 24h (including insurance) so are over 50% cheaper than the station lockers. Every additional day costs $7, and you can contact them directly for long term discounts. They store bags in vetted local hotels and shops – many are open 24/7. All bookings must be made online.

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.
Stasher has a hotel storage facility that is within a 3-minute walk of the station and is over half the price of station facilities. Bookings must be made online.
Can you store your luggage near Circular Quay?
Yes, there a few 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.
Stasher also has locations around Circular Quay.
Is there any luggage storage near Town Hall Station?
Stasher has a location right by Town Hall station. You can book online here. Their platform is adding new vetted hotels and shops across the city so there will be even more choice soon. It costs $8 per day including insurance.
What is the long-term luggage storage solution?
Stasher is again another option- they charge $7 per extra day but you can contact them directly for long term discounts. There is no limit on the number of days you can store for. You can either book online or if you wanted a longer term discount their email address is firstname.lastname@example.org.
Another option for 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?
Many of the Stasher locations are open 24/7 so you can collect your bag at any time. This costs $8 per day. You can look through the various options on their site and opening hours are listed, as well as a 24/7 logo on the photo. They have locations all across Sydney – by all Central and Town Hall stations, Circular Quay, as well as Surrey Hills, Bondi and further afield. Book online here for $8 for 24h.
Who would you recommend?
You may have guessed by now I am a big fan of Stasher, it’s such good value and the added security of knowing your luggage is insurance makes it a no brainer for me.
