I’m sticking to local Bike Leichhardt rides mostly, these days. Too many cyclists on the Gong Ride! 

I ride this same way to work (when I ride to work, which has been never, lately ....)

The bus lane is fine. 

I've been using them for years from the Fairlight end of Burnt Bridge to Warringah Mall.

Both ways.

I've found the bus drivers to be courteous and safe, and I've found that car drivers avoid the bus lane even when it's not a bus lane (from Balgowlah shops to Warringah Mall the buss lanes are only active in the afternoons going North and in the mornings going South.

A normal Bus Lane can also be used by bicycles, motor cycles, hire cars, taxis.

If the Bus Lane is 3 to 7 then it will be open to all vehicles outside those times and only to busses, bicycles, motor cycles, hire cars, taxis within those times. 

If it's marked Bus Only then it would be open only to busses within those times.
