Travel on the train

In order to reduce L’Étape Australia carbon footprint and minimise traffic congestion, L’Étape Australia encourage participants to travel to the event by train.

To facilitate your trip, L’Étape Australia have worked with Sydney Trains to implement additional services to and from Kiama on Friday 19 and Saturday 20 March 2021. You will find below the time tables of the additional services only. Plan your trip using the Trip Planner at transportnsw.info.

Please note that due to COVID-19 restrictions and to support NSW Health contact tracing requirements, you will need to tap on and off transport services using an Opal card or contactless payment method. Remember to register your contact details ahead of time via the Opal website or app, visit transportnsw.info for more details.

If you decide to catch public transport, wear a mask, allow extra travel time and plan ahead by checking real-time capacity indicators as you may need to wait for the next service with available physical distancing capacity.
