The Goods Line is a shared pedestrian and cycle path, and green public space, connecting Ultimo with Darling Harbour. 

The line provides a traffic-free, accessible thoroughfare from Central Station to Darling Harbour and is a fantastic spot to take the kids for a bike ride or just a rare, quite stroll in the City.

From Central, follow the signs for the South Concourse and UTS through the Devonshire Street tunnel, beneath George Street and continue to Ultimo Road. 

Visitors can picnic at the dining tables or bask in the sunshine in the green, grassy spaces. There are table tennis tables and a children’s water play area with a sand pit shaded by fig trees. It’s the perfect place to take a break in the middle of the busy city and just enjoy the tranquil surrounds.

History of the Goods line

You will notice old railways tracks as you walk through The Goods Line. That’s because it’s the site of an old rail corridor, part of a busy freight rail system that first opened in 1855.

This rail line ran from Dulwich Hill on the Bankstown line, to Rozelle and Darling Harbour Yards, finishing at Sydney Yard (Central Station), with major rail yards at Rozelle and Darling Harbour.

The section from Balmain Road to Sydney Yard was closed when Darling Harbour Yard was redeveloped into the Darling Harbour of today. Much of the line around Darling Harbour has been re-used for the Sydney Light Railway.
