At 35 metres, Johnston Street is the widest street in the Inner-West suburbs of Sydney. Taxi drivers know it and there’s no missing it on your GPS. But, if you’re coming from the airport, we recommend downloading the Google Map shortcut (below). Give it to the taxi driver or take it with you. By the way, at Bet’s B&B there is plenty of on-street parking and there are no parking metres or time restrictions.
