Sydney is Australia's largest city and this means that the traffic can be a problem. HW1 is the main highway for driving in Sydney and will connect you to most other big Australian cities in a network of connecting regional highways. Other routes to take note of include the HW10 which will take you to Newcastle, the HW5 will take you to Bathurst, and the HW2 will take you to the border of Victoria state. Make sure to keep to the left-hand side of the road when driving and to avoid parking against the flow of traffic which can incur local fines. To avoid traffic, steer clear of driving in the Central Business District during the early morning and late afternoon work commute times. Drivers should also note that due to Australia's expansive land, the distance between cities can be very long and therefore you should be properly prepared before making a journey between them.
