Arriving at Sydney Airport

Sydney is home to the largest and busiest airport in Australia.

Exploring Sydney on a tight budget? Hop on board the public bus that services the airport. Route 400 departs from the T3 Domestic terminal and will take you all the way into the CBD for only AUD 5.60 one-way.

The taxi stands are outside each domestic terminal. A one-way trip into the city usually takes 20-minutes if there is no traffic and costs around AUD 45-55. If you would rather use Uber, you can wait for your driver at the priority pick-up area.
