Its OK

(Guest Review) I slept at the airport more than 10 years ago and we were locked in with passport and ticket checks and security around. This time was very surprised that there was no checking anyone, no locking in, people sleeping everywhere. Not sure if this is the usual procedure now as I heard a cleaner complaining about the scattered bodies. It was busy and noisy and uncomfortable and most made use of the free wi-fi. It is satisfactory for a very early flight.

(Guest Review) Sydney International seems to be under constant construction. We had an early flight and there were limited food/ drink options available because most places were closed. Why you have to run the gauntlet of duty free shops is beyond me. Dirty and limited toilets in the arrivals hall. Compared to Incheon or Changi, Sydney International is a disgrace.

Beware of e-passport machines

(Guest Review by Delaware) When using an airport my main concern is the time it takes getting through immigration and security and getting to my gate. The airport itself is large, modern, clean with all the amenities you would expect from a city like Sydney but, the immigration queue is ridiculous. Beware If you have an e-passport and try using the passport reading machines because my experience both coming in and flying out of Sydney show that about 10 of the time they don't work. If your passport doesn't read you'll be queued in the assist line which can and did twice for me take 30-45 minutes to get through! I've never seen as much chaos, confusion and yelling as I did at Sydney's Immigration area. Going through security was fine.

Not too good...

(Guest Review) So as a backpacker I had checked out my hostel during the day and went to the domestic airport to get a flight the next morning. Arrived at the airport at around 9pm, and at around 11 I got woken by staff to tell me I had to leave the airport. I was absolutely bemused that an airport even closes, yes closes, it's terminals. I put my point to the member of staff that I was waiting on my flight in the morning. He told me to actually, sleep outside. Yes sleep outside. I thought he was joking and asked if he was kidding, to which he said no and pointed to a bench for me to spend my night on. Can I just say how demoralising, and ridiculous it is to expect customers to sleep outside in the cold. In order for me to actually sleep, I had to wedge my luggage in between the wall and a post to make sure it didn't go walkabout, whilst continued >>

The Lone Traveler

(Guest Review by LoneTraveler21) Flying standby is great... until you get bumped off of the only flight out of Sydney for the day and your only option is to sleep in the airport and wait for the next outgoing flight. Luckily in terminal 1 of the Sydney airport there is a secluded, third floor saved for staff offices, parents with children, and the unsuspecting, innocent lone traveler who is just waiting for his flight. When you reach the third floor there are bathrooms for men and women(which is usually how it works). upon entering the bathroom you'll see two more doors. One for the actual bathroom and the other for a shower room. The shower room is unfrequented and fairly clean(although i recommend wiping it down with some cloths if you have them). Here you have a door to lock, space to lay down completely along with placing your things continued >>
