Sydney Airport lies 8 kilometres south of the city centre and is around 31.7 kilometres from the northern Sydney suburb of Dee Why. There are multiple transport options available including public transport, shuttles, taxis, hire cars and private transfers. Any of these methods are available from Sydney Airport to Dee Why, however, some offer more disadvantages than others. Both trains and buses operate between the two places and are generally cost-effective, however, these particular lines are not direct services and will therefore cost you in time. Taxis are faster but also heavy-handed with their fees and hire cars are often unsuitable for most inner-city travel. If shared transportation isn’t for you, a shuttle won’t be the most desirable option either.
