"Sydney Kingsford Smith International Airport" Airways / Airports Tip by thescene

Airways / Airports, Sydney: 56 reviews and 68 photos

Named after a pioneer Australian aviator, the Sydney Kingsford Smith International Airport is Australia's busiest airport. Parts of the terminal have been renovated primarily to help passengers who might have a long layover in between flights. The shopping area offers a varied shopping experience for people might want to buy a list minute gift. There is also an extensive array of restaurants to cater to different tastes.

The immigration & customs staff may seem intimidating at first but they are actually quite helpful. Just be sure to answer truthfully and declare all items on your customs form and you should be alright.

The best way to travel to and from the airport will depend on how big your group is how much luggage you have. If you have a big group it would be better to take a cab as this would be cheaper. Smaller groups have the option of taking the Airportlink rail system which would be more economically. You do need to take into consideration that the system is not exclusive to people coming to and from the airport so the trains could be crowded with people commuting to and from work.
