For those staying in central Sydney or arriving at Sydney Airport the train to Kiama is a good option. From the airport, the train takes about 2 hours 20 minutes and a single ticket costs $23.40. From Central Station, the train takes two and a quarter hours and a single ticket costs $10. For information and trip planning, please visit:

From the airport by train take the T2 Airport Line from Domestic/International Airport Station to Wolli Creek Station and then change to the South Coast Line towards Kiama. At Wolli Creek, you would usually arrive on platform 2 and depart for Kiama on platform 4. Check station boards on the day to confirm. From Central Station, simply take the South Coast Line.
