But until such time, the Kindgsford Smith airport in Mascot will continue to serve international and domestic travellers in the same exceptional manner.

Useful information for the road:
If you plan to travel via the Sydney harbour bridge or tunnel, you will be subject to a toll fee. To work out the fees you may be charged on various other routes, visit the transport for NSW website.
Although you can take the train straight to Sydney airport, you will have to take note of the first and last trains in and out. It is not a 24 hour service and could affect your return schedule. Taking the train may be a great budget option, but not necessarily the comfiest option if you happen to be a family with a lot of luggage.
We recommend that you drive in the comfort of your own car, and make use of a reliable parking partner on the Parkos website. Be sure to check all your cars’ necessary operating fluids and their levels before getting on your way. Fuel is the most obvious thought that springs to mind, but don’t forget the coolant and oil checks too. Then finally a quick tyre pressure check, and you’ll be on your way.
Fuel is of course available at petrol stations throughout the capital of New South Wales. If you need a specific type of fuel vist the government website called fuel check to find the information you need. read more…
Roadside assistance in Australia
If you are unfortunate enough to break down, you have many options to get immediate roadside help in Sydney and throughout Australia in fact. There are even apps that you can download to call assistance immediately with aid of your credit card details. However the best recommendation we can give is that you arrange a membership or insurance plan prior to an unforeseen situation like this. It will most likely end up saving you money and of course the security of knowing you’re covered is priceless.
Speed limits have been reviewed for the centre of Sydney where there are high volumes of tourists and pedestrians. A strict 40 km p/hour or less is enforced as it has been proven to save lives. As for highways, a higher speed is permitted but still limited to about 110 km p/hour. Look out for signs to be completely certain.
