Posting the photo’s for now. WIll get back to this soon to give a full review!
You will find this room tucked away right down the bottom of the building near the Post boxes. Once you’ve found it, the room is reasonably well appointed with decent facilities. A few repairs were needed when we visited. I hope by now they have been!
A big ‘Thanks!!’ to Michelle, for sending in this review. If you’re ever heading into Circular Quay with your little ones, this will come in handy.
‘Toilets are opposite wharf 6. Men’s and women’s toilets are directly opposite each other. Both have a separate disabled toilet that doubles as a baby change.
They are kept locked and you need to ask one of the railway staff to unlock them. You ask the staff at the ticket collect points and they will radio to have someone come and unlock them.
Plenty of space and although not very clean they were better than I was expecting for public toilets.’

Do you know how rare it is to find baby change facilities that dads can access? It’s almost as rare as hens teeth….almost. The Australian Museum has remembered the dads and provided baby change tables in the male toilets up on Level 2. Yay!!!!!!
Check out the review below from Melanie.
“You would expect a family orientated attraction would be more pram friendly as the pram entrance is not well signposted. Being a second entrance/exit, it is easy to exit the museum without going through the gift shop which may be a relief for some parents.
Adult tickets are $12 and are featured in the entertainment book as a buy one get one free. Children under 5 are free.
Pro: a change table is available for both mums and dads. The change table has a raised corner to allow you to hang the nappy bag. There are about 10 chairs nearby for feeding
Cons: the table is too close to the door so everyone can see what’s inside the nappy, including those entering / exiting the men’s room. ( this really bothered me ). The passageway to get to the room is very narrow, you can not fit a double pram through to get anywhere near the change table facilities.
The table is positioned too close to the paper towel dispenser so you end up on a strange angle when changing the nappy”.
