About CET's location

The Centre for English Teaching is located on the main campus of the University of Sydney in the Wentworth Building in Sydney, NSW, Australia. The campus is a short distance from the city centre, and is easily accesible by Sydney's bus and train networks. It is between the inner-city suburbs of Glebe and Newtown, where you'll find inexpensive restaurants and entertainment, and a broad range of off-campus housing. It is also very close to Chinatown and Darling Harbour, and 25 minutes from the nearest ocean beach.

Sydney is one of the world's most beautiful cities; it has a magnificent harbour, famous beaches, wildlife parks and a wide choice of restaurants and shopping facilities.
