Transport from Sydney Airport to Bondi Junction?

by 04072511

Hi all,

I'm arriving into Sydney airport (travelling from Ireland) next monday early in the morning at about 8am. Whats the best way of getting from the airport to Bondi Junction? Is there a direct train/bus I can get? How much would a taxi cost at around 8am?

Thanks

Deffinatly train/underground. You will be able to get it from the Kingsforth-Smith airport, if memory serves right.
Also if you are staying in Sidney a week or more, I suggest you to buy yourself weekly ticket, as you can use it on buses, trains and ferries.
Trains start running at 5am.
taxi will be extremly expencive. and trains in Sidny are experiance, so why not use them.

If you use the train you will have to travel into the city and change trains at Town Hall station. This shouldn't be a problem if you don't have too much lugguge, no problem at all if you have a back-pack.

I don't use taxis, so not sure of the cost. But 8am on a Monday will be busy - it's peak hour so train is certianly the cheaper option.

As far as I know you catch the train from the international terminal to Wolli Creek which is 1 stop and cost me $14.50 the other day Then at Wolli Creek get off and you buy a ticket from the ticket office at station to Bondi Junction This train will be a direct one as it is on the Illawarra line.
I don't know about any buses never used them and in peak hour a taxi would be expensive but it depends if you are travelling alone or can split the cost with some one and how much luggage you have .

I just went onto the Cityrail website and clicked on fare calculator and it says its 14.81 kilometres from Airport to Bondi Junction and costs $15.20 adult one way fare So maybe you can get a dticket to go all the way but I was charges the two fares as Airport line is privately run Maybe someone else knows

Any way at least you know the trains go where you want Goodluck

I'm travelling alone and will have 1 big suitcase and a small suitcase, along with a small backpack.

I RECOMMEND THAT YOU USE THE SHUTTLE BUS- ITS CHEAP & CONVIENIENT.

I have sent my pickup request on KST.com. It says that they will get back to me in 48 hours. How quickly do they usually take to reply? I leave in 4 days so I really need them to get back to me within the 48 hours as they have said. Do I have to pay online or do they take the cash when I get on the coach? Has anybody used this service before? How does the process work? I got no email confirmation so I cant even check that I entered all my data correctly.

The shuttle bus has a stand outside and close to international arrivals hall.
You can pay the driver. We have used this service a few years ago- this is how it worked then. It MAY have changed now. I am, however, sure that you will hear back from them soon.

Travel Tips for Sydney

The Sydney Explorer Bus...

by Ronald_T

The best thing you can do to explorer Sydney (when you don't have a friend over there that can be your guide) is to use the Sydney Explorer Bus. This bus has 25 stops and you can hop on and off anywhere you wish, with an interval of 18 minutes. I didn't use the bus because I had a personal guide ;-) The first departure from Circular Quay is at 8.40 am and the last 'round trip' at 5.22 am.

Public Toilets

by cjg1

Another really great thing about Sydney is that they make it easy for you to keep exploring. This luckily includes public bathrooms.

They are everywhere, especially in the tourist centers. You will often and almost always find a place to easily make a quick pit stop and keep moving.

Thank you Sydney for making your city so tourist friendly.

Kookabura

by cjg1

Kookaburras are birds found in Australia, New Guinea and the Aru Islands. You will definitely hear a Kookaburra before you see one; they make noise that sounds like human laughter. There are four different species of these birds with different physical traits and colorings.

Packing List

by b1bob

What you pack depends on your style of travel and the time of year you go. Unless you have some sort of formal engagement, I wouldn't pack too many suitcases. In fact, I could get all I needed into a carry-on. It depends on the time of year you travel. In the winter when I was there, I wore sweatshirts, long pants and windbreakers. Winters in Sydney are cool, but not frigid, rather like winter in Jacksonville, Florida. If you go in the summer, of course, t-shirts and short pants are most comfortable. Nothing different than anywhere else you go, the basic stuff such as toothbrush, toothpaste, shampoo, razor, etc. Again, no need to go crazy. A simple 35mm camera will do.
