Sydney Airport is located approximately eight kilometers from the Sydney CBD and is easily accessible by all modes of transport including car, train, taxi or bus.
All terminals - T1 International, T2 Domestic and T3 Domestic can easily be found by following road signs to the airport (usually displayed by a simple airplane symbol).
Taxis, shuttle buses, chauffeur driven cars and limousines all provide a service to and from the Sydney Airport.
Each terminal has its own sheltered taxi rank with supervisors on hand in peak hours to ensure a smooth flow of taxis for travellers. Curbside supervisors can organize large taxis (station wagons) if you are carrying lots of luggage. There is a AUD$4.00 Airport Toll (on top of your taxi fare) payable by all passengers taking a taxi from any Sydney Airport taxi rank.
If your accommodation is in the Sydney CBD you can expect to pay around $50 for the taxi fare, North Sydney $65, Ryde $85 or Manly $103. Actual fees will depend on the time of day you are travelling. Additional charges may apply for any bridge or road tolls incurred on your trip. There is no additional charge for baggage and there is no requirement to tip the taxi driver.
Please note that taxi drivers are required to accept all fares, big and small, from the airport. Taxi drivers are not allowed to pick up passengers outside of the taxi rank. If they do so drivers will be fined AUD$5,000.
