シドニーの案内マップによると、元々税関のビルとして使われていたそうだが、今では１Ｆのガラス張りの床下にシドニーの街のジオラマが、２Ｆに近未来的なシートのある図書館などがある。 また、観光案内カウンターも設置されており、無料Wifiも使えるので、休憩がてら観光情報を確認するベースとしても良い。According to the map of Sydney, originally as a customs building used was likely, but now that 1st floor glass floor diorama of the city of Sydney is located on second floor of futuristic sheet library; In addition, it as a base to see the break while sightseeing, as also the tourist information counter can use free Wi-Fi, so good.show original

서큘러키역 바로 앞에 위치 찾기쉬워요. 시티내에서 걸어갈수 있는 곳입니다. 입구에 딱들어서면 먼저 유리바닥에 시드니 시티 전경을 축소모형으로 볼수있습니다. 이곳 저곳 찾아보는 재미도 있습니다. 일층은 잡지나 신문을 볼수 있는 곳이 있구요. 이층으로 가시면 책을 볼수 있게 되어있습니다. 한국어와 일본어 책도 구비 되어 있어서 한국책을 읽고 싶으신분 들에겐 좋... read more »Circular Quay station is located directly in front of the find, easy peasy.

Sensational show for the Sydney Vivid lights, music and ideas festival. One of the best there is in the whole festival. Inside customs house the architectural display of Sydney under the floor as you walk in the foyer is terrific. There are services for all customs needs. There is displays of many types to see. There is dining and coffee shops. All good, a must see at Circular Quay. Enjoy!
Love coming here to see the small art exhibits, laying down on the comfortable couchs, or showing friends the large miniature model of Sydney CBD under the floor. You stand on glass to look at it. Pretty great way to explain the city layout and point stuff out.
Free international newspapers, magazines and Internet - upstairs library often has photo exhibitions - ground floor has Sydney CBD model under glass floor - entrance has swastikas/fylfots dating from maybe 1920 - a great air-conditioned place to hang on a too-hot day or rest the feet while waiting for a ferry
During Vivid Festival, this is consistently one of the best installations and always worth a look. Outside of Vivid Festival it is still a must see place, with the modern of the city installed under a glass door in the main foyer.
Glad to visit during vivid sydney, fantastic show, grat view
