Exploring accessible Sydney

We’ve pulled together some tips to help locals and visitors make their way around Sydney.

Getting around

Our online accessibility map highlights stairs and steep hills. The map also points out accessible parking spaces, toilets and taxi ranks.

Finding your way

Tactile and braille street signs are next to push buttons at all signalised pedestrian crossings.

The aluminium panels feature street names and building numbers in braille and large, raised text. These formats allow touch-reading by blind people or people with low vision.

Read our accessible user guide for the tactile and braille street signs.
