|Although the view is a bit impeded, the one from the Bridge looking down onto the harbour, opera house etc. is pretty cool. There's also a view of the harbour from Circular Quay station.|

Sydney's millennium train goes like this: "Beep Beep Beep!" – "Please stand clear. Doors closing. Next stop, Town Hall. Get off at Town Hall for Queen Victoria Building and Darling Harbour". On other lines, most train sets have recorded announcements "Stand clear, doors closing" or the newer one "Doors closing, please stand clear," in some train sets followed by different kinds of beeps. Some trains beep also when doors open. On the Illawarra Line, when it approaches a station, a female voice announces: "Next stop, [name]". For transfer stations it adds: "Passengers should change at [name] for services to [name]" (wav).
Films with scenes set on this metro:
