    Take a train from Bankstown Station to Olympic Park Station - exactly what I did when I went to the ARIA Awards this year, which was also at Acer Arena (except I came from Bondi Junction Station).

    Acer Arena is a 3-minute walk from the Olympic Park Station.

    It's just called 'Olympic Park Station'.

    Check cityrail.com.au.

    To get from Bankstown Station to Olympic Park Station:

    - take a train from Bankstown Station to Lidcombe Station
    - take a train from Lidcombe Station to Olympic Park Station

    It'll take 40 minutes at maximum.

    When you get to Bankstown Station buy a return ticket to Olympic Park Station.

    Then ask for one of the staff to direct you to the line to goes to Lidcombe if you're having trouble finding it.

    Once you're on the train be aware when you arrive at Lidcombe Station. It should take about 20 minutes. When you do, be sure to get off.

    At Lidcombe Station find the sign that says Olympic Park Station and catch that train and you'll arrive there in about 6 minutes.

    Oh, by the way, you can't pre-book train tickets.

    They're not on sale yet.

    If you have a Visa credit card they go on pre-sale this Thursday.

    Otherwise you'll have to wait until Thursday next week.

    Check ticketek.com.au.
