By taxi and rideshare

By ride share

Request a ride from your preferred rideshare service and get picked up from either the domestic or international terminals. Simply send the request once you've exited the terminal, and your driver will meet you at the designated pick up zone for your terminal.

  • T1 International - Exit Arrivals Hall A and follow signs to Rideshare
  • T2 Domestic - Exit the terminal and follow the green signs for Priority Pick-up
  • T3 Domestic - Passengers will be collected from the kerbside, directly outside of T3 Domestic terminal

Fares to SYD vary depending on the selected vehicle option, travel time, and total distance. Use the Uber Fare Estimator to get estimated prices.

By taxi

Each terminal has its own sheltered taxi rank with supervisors on hand during peak times to ensure a smooth flow of taxis for travellers.

If you need assistance, kerbside supervisors can also organise taxis with baby capsules, wheelchair access, five-seaters and maxi taxis for larger groups or station wagons for large amounts of baggage.

Information for taxi passengers

Drivers are required to accept all fares, small or large, from the airport. The kerbside management team will help you and your driver with this request.

Please note that taxis are not permitted to pick up passengers away from a taxi rank and drivers can be fined AU$5,000 for breaking the regulation.

Accessible taxi facilities

Taxi drivers who need to assist their passengers to the terminal buildings may leave their vehicles at designated pre-booked taxi bays at both the international and domestic terminals.

Different procedures apply for drop off and pick-up at each terminal and additional kerbside management officers are on hand to manage the system and assist drivers and passengers. Customers requiring accessible taxis are advised to pre-book where possible.

Due to aviation security requirements, taxi drivers may not leave their vehicles when stopped outside terminal buildings.
