Sydney Airport (often referred to as Sydney Kingsford Smith) is a busy one, with tons of flights coming in daily. To help you navigate your way out of it here are the options available to get into the city:
Hop on a train - the easiest and fastest way to get into the city. Sydney Airport uses the airport link train service to get you where we need to go quickly and comfortably. The station for domestic travel is underground and sandwiched between the t2 and t3 terminal and is super easy to find just follow the signs. You can get to the domestic terminal from the “arrivals” level and there’s a train leaving every 10 minutes so you won’t miss a chance to get into Sydney. It only costs about $16.00 per person (one-way) and takes about 13 minutes to get to Sydney.
Grab a taxi - the most expensive option but probably easier if you’re unsure of where you’re going. A taxi to Sydney’s CBD will cost around $50.00, give or take. There are always taxi drivers waiting outside to drive into Sydney right next to the t2 terminal. If you go with the cab option, you may even get a driver who can give you some tips on things to do and places to see.
Get on the bus - if a train or cab doesn’t sound like an option, you can get on the bus. The local bus stops that drive into Sydney are outside of the t3 terminal. A single bus ticket only costs about $2-$6 for a single one-way ticket and is definitely the cheapest option available.
