Getting to Broken Bay From the Sydney Airport
Newport, the first town on the Pittwater Peninsula, is a 49 kilometres drive north of Sydney's international airport; a 57 minute drive. If you are arriving at Sydney's international airport, there are five ways to get to the Northern Beaches; shuttle bus, municipal bus, taxi, Uber or rental car.
1. Shuttle Bus $15-$120.
When you exit the customs clearance hall there are signs pointing to the public bus depot. Just follow the signs for shuttle bus services and look for the Collaroy Airport Transfers shuttle bus - they work approximately 17 hours a day Northside Shuttles run approximately 14 hours (5am to 8pm).
2. Municipal Bus $22-$25.
The Airport Express Bus 300 goes from the airport to the city (Wynyard would be the best disembarkation point). Change at Wynyard ror bus L90 or L88 to Newport.
3. Taxi $140-$180.
On departure from the customs area there are signs for the taxi ranks. A metered taxi will take you directly to your destination.
4. Uber $75-$100.
5. Rental Car.
Depending on your plans, a rental car can be a very good idea. You can reserve a car over the Internet and it will be waiting for you at the airport. Or you can rent one at the airport car rental area in the arrivals lounge (but you'll get a better deal over the Internet).
