Sydney International Airport

Sydney International Airport welcomes 50% of all overseas visitors to Australia, and moves nearly 36 million passengers a year through its three terminals. Flanked by Botany Bay, Australia's flagship airport is located just 9 km (5.5 miles) south of central Sydney, a 15-minute ride on the Airport Link train.

Fly to this airport with KLM


Train is the fastest and most hassle-free choice, neatly avoiding traffic snarls, although the one-way fare to Circular Quay is A$15.40 so it's not the cheapest option. Speedy Airport Link trains take passengers from the international and domestic terminals into the city every 10 minutes or so, taking 10 to 15 minutes to reach Circular Quay. This Airport Link connects with all stations on the City Loop from 5am to midnight. The trains have plenty of room for luggage and most City Circle stations have lifts.


Taxis are a good bet if your destination isn't served by City Circle trains. Ranks can be found outside each terminal, and cabs can be pre-booked. Supervisors are on hand to organise such necessities as baby carriers or wheelchairs. The trip to central Sydney should take 30 minutes and cost around AUS$50 (not including tolls or airport tax of AUS$3.50).


To drive into central Sydney from the airport, take Airport Drive and follow the signs to the city, picking up the Eastern Distributor. The trip should take around 30 minutes but allow up to an hour at busy times. Car rental is found in Arrivals at all terminals.
