  1. When you have a trolley full of huge bags and stuff, DO NOT try to cut the freaking queue at the customs. Freaking annoying!

  2. Use the train to get there, have a good book, a LOT of patience and stay at the Stamford Plaza – for shopping visit any of the great name brand stores for that perfect gift for the person who will be meeting you

  3. Because baggage claim and quarantine takes forever just learn to cooperate. If you have something to declare make sure you do. Also the Armani store is pretty cool

  4. Locate and submit to the bar as soon as possible when departing. Declare everything when arriving, from my trips to the village I even get them to wash all my shoes. It’s a small victory for how long Quarantine takes

  5. Its the worst place to land with the detailed customs officers. Even with no bags, the dog sniffs you before you enter the country. If you have a beard, expect additional checks when you leave so shave clean.

  6. I opt for the reverse. Compared to many airports, Sydney Kingsford Smith is a dream to depart. So low-key, I have often gone to sleep waiting for my flight.

    Coming in is a nightmare.

    Thank you.

    Don’t be THAT selfish.

  8. Victoria’s Secret in Depatures!! It’s the only one in Sydney (at least that I know of)! Get yourself or your wife/girlfriend/sister/best chickie mates some frilly new undies.
