Sydney Airport Review

by web-administrator (April, 2015)


Pros: -
Cons: -


(Guest Review) Duty free stores on arrivals have gone so far that they are literally positioned in the walkway of incoming passengers prior to immigration. After a long flight from North America this is quite literally rude and 'in your face' and the last thing that a weary traveller wants or expects. Suggest that the Airport Corporation streamline incoming walkways and remove duty free shops from the path. Ditto on departures from this airport - travellers are forced to walk via the duty free shop...

Sydney Airport Review

(Guest Review) I didn't actually sleep here, but I always suss out an airport for sleeping possibilities. There are some, but I don't know how bad security is and whether they leave you alone. Aussies can be kinda nuts when it comes to that sort of stuff... There are NO seats before going through security! I like to get to the airport early and chill and I had to put my bony ass on a metal bar for an hour prior to going through security. The reason I didn't go thru as soon as I arrived? I'd brought my own picnic rather than pay the retarded inflated prices!

Sydney Domestic / International terminal sleeping experience

Cons: -


(Guest Review) On a recent trip to Sydney, I decided to spend the night at the airport and take an early morning bus ride to Canberra. I was mostly cutting costs, but also did not want the hassles of transferring to accommodation only to get back at 6:00 in the morning. Although I thought I had 'thoroughly researched' this, I found to my bewilderment (and some amusement) that the domestic airport shuts down at ~23:30, at which time everyone must get out! It opens early morning sometime (around 3-4??). So I decided to spend the night at the international terminal. I took the airport link (5.5) and reached the designated 'Waiting Area' by around 22:00. This is the only area passengers are allowed to stay overnight, as mentioned in many previous reviews. Its located between the staircase to the upper level and the exit to the airport link continued >>

Sydney Airport Review

by web-administrator (October, 2014)


Pros: -
Cons: -


(Guest review) Long queues at Customs, forced to sleep after hours near the entrance to the train station and locked in like prisoners until the next morning. Constant boarding pass/passport checking in 'sleeping' area. Arrivals hall is a fiasco with long lines for passport control and quarantine check, minimal and unfriendly staff, lack of food services after 10pm, overzealous security, baggage claim is a fight as the bags often take a while to come through.

Sydney Airport Review

(Guest Review) Every bench before security has armrests. One has to curl themselves around an armrest in order to even attempt to sleep. The floor is far from inviting as well. Hard marble. Terminal is closed from 12-3. locked in a small holding room near the rail line. gets very cold in the fall/winter with people coming and going through automatic sliding doors.
