The Commission's offices are located near the north end of the Pitt St mall, next door to the Westin Hotel. We are easily accessible via public transport. Wynyard, Martin Place and St James stations are within easy walking distance (less than 5 minutes). Town Hall station is also nearby. There are also many buses that stop nearby and a number of parking lots within walking distance. Traffic is likely to be heavy at this time of day so we encourage you to use public transport, if possible.
