Easy to navigate your way around, plenty of signage and information for where you are going. We passed through many times during our 2 week stay, also this is where you can get your Opel cards.

Been to this place from orange nsw for administrative job. Railway station had enough instructions for commuters to reach desired destination. I was little skeptical about new places but everything went right.
