Transportation to/from the airport

The easiest way from the airport to the city is by train, Sydney AirportLink. Take the airport line train to Central station. From there, you can walk (~20 minutes) or get a bus that stops in the centre of the Camperdown/Darlington campus. The relevant bus stop names are “Chippendale, Central Station, Railway Square (stand L/M)” to “Darlington City Rd before Butlin Av”, and there are many routes including 422, 423, 426, 428, M30. Buses in Sydney are often prepay only, for which you will need an Opal Card (available at the airport station). The fare for the train will be approx $20, plus about $3 for the bus. Or you can take a taxi/uber from the airport for approx $30, depending on traffic.
