Train trip and day in Sydney

CHEC Sydney Trip

Leaving Thursday 24th November and returning Friday 25th November

TRAIN Tickets: Children are $1 each way!

Thursday 24th November Depart: 11:50am, Canberra Railway Station, Wentworth Avenue, Burke Cres, Kingston Arrival: 4:03pm, Central Station Sydney, Central, Eddy Ave, Haymarket NSW

Friday 25th November Depart: 5:40pm, Central Station Sydney, Central, Eddy Ave, Haymarket NSW Arrival: 10:05pm, Canberra Railway Station, Wentworth Avenue, Burke Cres, Kingston

Opal pass is needed for trains and ferry

Children ages 4-15 are automatically eligible for child/youth card. Those 16 and older can get a Child/youth Opal card, but will first need a concession card for reduced fare. To get concession card, you will need to show they are still in school. Takes about a week to get concession card.

ACCOMODATION – Pack Light for One Night, NO suitcases!!

Sydney Central YHA, 11 Rawson Pl, Cnr Pitt St & Rawson Pl, Sydney You will need to book your own room. A room for 5 people (size of my family) is $227. If you book through, you will get a better rate and also don’t have to pay until the 22nd of Nov. You can also cancel if needed by the 20th of Nov. Once we get off the train at Sydney Central Station, we will check into the youth hostel and then enjoy dinner and a night in Sydney. The next morning we will have breakfast and then check out early and spend the day at the zoo.

Train and Ferry to & from Zoo

We will take the city train from Central Station to Circular Quay, and then walk to the Circular Quay/Wharf 4 to catch the ferry to the Taronga Zoo Wharf. Cost $10? You will need money on your Opal pass.

TARONGA ZOO, Bradleys Head Rd, Mosman NSW 2088 $15.50/student & teacher discount We will get to the Zoo at their opening time and stay until about 3pm. We will then head back to Sydney Central Station and catch the 5:40pm train back to Canberra. This is why you need to pack light as we will NOT be going back to the youth hostel. The Zoo may have lockers to leave bags in???


Each family is responsible for their own meals. We plan to have dinner out in China Town the first night. There are meals on the train, at the hostel and at the zoo; however, you may choose (like I am) to do packed lunches, snacks, etc. for the way up to Sydney, the day at the zoo, and dinner on the way back to Canberra.

Nature Group Morning Tea @ Vision

Hello CHEC,

This Friday come and enjoy some fellowship with a twist! A dancing twist 🙂 I’ll be leading some simple communal dances that all our families will be able to enjoy. Bring along a curious mind and your favourite pair of socks to join us in exploring music and dance together. We’ll plan to dance for about an hour. Dancing is not compulsory! You are most welcome to come and enjoy the recorded music and fellowship that can run alongside the dance and will flow on after the dancing has finished up. I’m looking forward to seeing you there 🙂

Tea and Coffee provided,

There is also great outside play equipment.

Mum's Encouragement Evening – cuppa, cake and conversation

CHEC mums, 

You are invited to come and join us for a relaxed evening of having a hot cuppa of something delicious, enjoying a bite to eat, and sharing in warm conversation.

The topic will be “Dealing with Overwhelm”, so come along with some thoughts to share, or simply to listen.

Please RSVP by Sunday the 13th of November to Jess on 0422 716 524. 

Anzac Parade Walk ages 12-17 plus parents only please

Come and walk along Anzac Parade and learn about each of the memorials.

The educator that does this walk is a fabulous communicator.

Maybe after the excursion we could stop in at Poppy’s Cafe and have a cuppa with our practicing adults.

Will need numbers for this 2 weeks prior to the event.  I will remind you all but maybe pop it in your diary anyway.
