Sea Cliff Bridge
Sea Cliff Bridge is located on Lawrence Hargrave Drive between the suburbs of Coalcliff and Clifton 60 kilometers south of the Sydney central business district. At current fuel prices it would cost you an average of $30 roundtrip from Sydney to travel to the area via car, or $14.40 per person by train.
A great day trip for little cost! In consideration of the enviroment
and fuel costs (MotorMouth lists the best per litre price), how much cheaper would it be to travel to work via train v's car? Just a thought.
