If you go to Birkenhead Point Marina, and walk north west on Victoria Rd for about 500 metre's there is a service station called United 24 on the left hand side. I filled my 2 bottles there yesterday. You have to walk past the Shell station as they only have exchange bottles. I hope this helps!

I just need to rent a car to get out there as taking gas bottles on public transport seems to be frowned upon in this day and age.. did anyone say bomb? Anyway saving up jobs to do that require a car so that I can get out there and do a few other things to make a $75 car rental worth while.

Thanks for all the help, its much appreciated.
Rent a car ? Are you nuts ? From Pyrmont to Cass Bros is about 2k. Get yourself to Parrramatta Road ( AKA Broadway ) and take bus 461, 480 ,483 - all stop right outside Cass Bros. Altenatively take bus 440, 436, 437, 438 and get off at the first 90 degree turn right off Parramatta Road and walk about 200m West to Cass Bros. It is on top of a BIG hill on the left.

Eeeezzeee !

Re: Propane Refill in Sydney

For starters, I don't want your respect. Criticise me as you please.

Given that you aren't the guy carrying the bottles, what's it to you ?

I won't bore you with tales of all the gas bottles I have carried on buses in many countries.

Re: Propane Refill in Sydney

Actually carrying a gas bottle on public transport in Sydney does raise a significant point regarding the transport of dangerous goods in general and the applicable laws.

What one could do 10 or 15 years ago or still do in other countries is irrelevant.

I don't know about Sydney buses but you can't carry a flammable materials on Sydney trains. I reckon they would claim that a gas bottle would be considered to contain a flammable material.
See Conditions of travel - CityRail

I suspect the same rules would apply to the buses but an email to them cold be a good idea.
