Sydney Airport is connected to a train line. There are stations outside both the domestic and international arrivals areas, and all you have to do is get off at Wolli Creek and switch to a service that is heading towards Dapto, Bomaderry or Port Kiama. Tickets are sold at automated machines and kiosks inside the terminal, you just need to type in your final address, and the machine will provide you with the correct fare.

Taxis don’t operate between the airport and Wollongong, although you can hire a private shuttle service. The University of Wollongong recommends Leisure Coast Limousines.
