Itinerary: Rydges Central Package

Saturday 19 August – Bledisloe Cup Sydney

Arrive in Sydney and make your way to your hotel. The standard check-in time of 2pm will apply to your booking.

Welcome to Sydney, the most iconic city in Australia. Everything you could ever want in a weekend trip is available right on your doorstep. With a combination of sport, shopping, beaches, restaurants and bars all with an element of flare, this is one of the great cities in the world to visit.

The day we have all been awaiting is upon us with the Qantas Wallabies taking on the All Blacks in the first Bledisloe Cup match of 2017. The 2016 Bledisloe Cup match in Sydney was a disappointing one for the Qantas Wallabies as the All Blacks romped to a 42 – 8 victory. Back in front of their home crowd the Wallabies will be out to seek a vengeance and get their Bledisloe Cup campaign off to a winning start.

If you have purchased our We Love Rugby cruise, the boat will depart at 3.00pm (TBC) where this one-way pre-match function will cruise from Sydney Harbour to Sydney Olympic Park. We pass by iconic sights including the Opera House, Harbour Bridge and Luna Park before heading up the Parramatta River to Sydney Olympic Park wharf where we will be collected by coach for the quick 3.5km transfer to ANZ Stadium.

If you have not purchased the cruise, make your way to Central Station where you can get the express train to Olympic Park which is adjacent to ANZ Stadium. We suggest to leave early and allow plenty of time as the trains do get busy on game day. Free public transport is included in the cost of your match ticket.

Match: Australia v New Zealand
Venue: ANZ Stadium, Olympic Park
Kick off: 8pm

Following the match you will either board our coach transfer from Sydney Olympic Park to Sydney CBD hotels (can be purchased during the booking process) or make your own way back to the hotel. The best way to do this is via train from Olympic Park station (located alongside ANZ Stadium) direct to Central Station, from here you can either walk or get a taxi back to your hotel.

Overnight: Sydney
