    A picture of the arrivals level of Sydney airport (international terminal). Samsung has a display with free internet access (near one of the doors to the outside opposite the hotel telephones). In this photo, the free internet machine is to the extreme left.

    If you are at Melbourne or brisbane,you could take bus to enjoy the scenery,though it takes abt 10 hrs from either city.Or catch a flight obviously.Cx out www.qantas.com.au for good airfares.If you prefer, www.virginblue.com.au for an entertaining flight. ;-)
    Buy a day tripper ticket which cost$13 and you could take the bus and/or the ferries all day long...

    By plane would be the best way. It is a 10-12 hour drive from Melbourne and thousands of miles from anywhere else in the world! :-)
    Public transport, ferries around the harbour area, or hire car if you think you can handle driving in that traffic!

    Sydney has a wonderfully modern International airport with direct flights to/from Los Angeles, California that take between 17-21 hours depending on the wind. From Sydney, you can catch flights to Cairns in the north, Perth, Melbourne, wherever!
    Sydney is not a difficuly city to walk in, but sometimes you may need to get a taxi. Most places you can walk though, the streets are clean and wonderful looking.

    Er... I think by PLANE would be the best way to get to Australia if you're coming from abroad. :-)
    Anyhow, let's get back to being serious. I just can't sing enough praises for Australia's BEST airline - QANTAS.

    Their service onboard is excellent... and they really do know how to treat a passenger like a princess!

    Once when I misplaced my camera in a cab in Sydney and was feeling reeeeally moody when I boarded my Qantas flight (back home to Singapore), the Aussie steward rounded ALL his buddies on board to try and cheer me up. Yes, they did manage to put a smile back on my otherwise glum face. Hey, it was my brand new camera that I just lost. :-(

    Then there was another occasion when I fell gravely ill in Paris and when I boarded my flight the following day, I was pleasantly surprised that the airline had UPGRADED me to Business Class the moment they heard that I had fallen ill (via my travel agent).

    So tell me, how can I not sing praises about Qantas??

    Kingsford Smith Airport is located approx. 25 minutes away by CAB to the city center. It doesn't cost much to hop onto a cab. Expect to pay less than A$30 (US$20 or less). You can also choose to take the Airport Express Bus shuttle service to the city center. I'm not sure what's the exact cost but it shouldn't cost more than A$13.

    Native-Australian-style-decorated plane!

    by Jerelis Written Jul 24, 2006

    Unfortunately I didn’t get to fly on this native-Australian-style-decorated plane... but the plane ride concludes my time well spent in Australia during our trip.

    Native-Australian-style-decorated plane.
