Getting from the Airport
The Airport Link is the best way to get into the city from the airport. Trains are frequent and they get you to Central Station in less than 15 minutes; from there you can find connecting light-rail trains to take you anywhere. The fare system can be a little confusing, but expect to pay about $18 to get from the International Terminal to Circular Quay.
Sydney’s commuter light-rail network, called CityRail, is remarkably extensive. It’s more like a commuter train than a subway, but the stops are in all the right places, so most destinations are accessible without using the also extensive but far less convenient bus network. Fares are calculated by distance according to a zone map.
Taxis in Sydney are safe, reliable and plentiful. The drivers are usually a great source of info as you explore the city. The starting fare is $3.60 and the rate is $2.19 per kilometre after that.
