Essential travel information for Sydney

Departing from the Gold Coast

Gold Coast Airport (OOL) is the 2nd busiest airport in Queensland and the 6th busiest in all of Australia. All its flights leave from a single terminal, which is 22km away from Surfers Paradise.

As well as taxis and cars, passengers can get to the terminal with a SkyBus shuttle service or a public bus from Broadbeach South Station.

For flights to Sydney, you should try to be at Gold Coast Airport 1 hour before take-off.

After checking in and passing through passenger screening, you’ll find yourself surrounded by stores and dining options by the departure gates. In all, the airport has more than 20 options for food and drinks. Almost all of these are beyond the security checks.

Arriving in Sydney

Sydney Airport (SYD) is Australia’s busiest airport, with 3 terminals for incoming flights. Flights from the Gold Coast land at either Terminal 2 or 3, and these share a train station for quick trips into the city.

Each terminal has its own taxi rank, but car hire at Sydney Airport is only available in Terminal 1, the international facility, or in the car park between the 2 domestic terminals.

The airport is 10km from the CBD. However, this short stretch of road regularly gets congested, making the train the quickest option into the city. Public transport in NSW is cheaper with an Opal card.
