Sydney Kingston International Airport is located nine kilometres south of the city centre and is a modern facility offering daily scheduled flights to and from a large number of Australian, Asian and international destinations. The Airport Link is a fast and convenient way to reach the centre of Sydney. Trains run approximately every 10 minutes and the journey into the city takes only 13 minutes. The international and domestic rail stations link directly to the City Circle, which means most city destinations are within a short walk of stations. Buses are also available. Meanwhile, taxis are on hand, as are car hire companies.
Sydney is connected by railway to Melbourne in the south; Adelaide and Perth in the west; and Cairns in the north. There is an extensive rail network within NSW, operated by Countrylink. In Australia, the train tracks in NSW are a different size to those in Queensland, so travellers must take a bus at the Queensland border to change to a different train. Trains are modern and well-equipped. Sydney’s Central Station, on Eddy Avenue, just south of the city centre, is a grand old building, lined with newsagents, coffee shops and restaurants as well as transport and tourist information offices.
Sydney is served by interstate buses from all major cities around the country. Buses are modern and air-conditioned and travel passes are available. The major interstate bus operator is Greyhound Regional and interstate bus services are available to all major cities at the Sydney Coach Terminal outside Central Railway Station. All major bus companies have offices here.
