DirectionsShow MapHide Map
From the airport:
Catch a shuttle bus; these leave from outside the Arrivals area of both the International and Domestic Terminals. The trip costs $16 per person (one-way) and they will drop you at our front door. It's best not to buy a return ticket; when you need to go back we can sell you a ticket to the airport for $12. Depending on your flight, you may have to go by taxi anyway.
If you'd like to come by taxi, it shouldn't cost you more than $45. Try to find another lost soul with a backpack and see if you can share the ride to Kings Cross and split the cost.
You can also buy a seven-day Bus/Train/Ferry Pass including a return ticket to and from the airport. Buy this only if you are going back to the airport within seven days and intend to use the buses and trains extensively. The cost is about $40.
From Kings Cross Train Station:
We're located 100 metres to the north of Kings Cross Train Station. Take the Victoria Street exit and walk down the street. ChilliBlue is on the right-hand side.
ChiliBlue is located in a quiet street just behind Kings Cross - the nightlife center of Sydney.
We are also within 10-minute walk of the city center and all major tourist sites and only 120 metres north of Kings Cross Train Station.
The Sydney Harbor and famous Harry's Pies are a short five-minute walk
The City Town-Hall and Queen Victoria Building are less than 15 minutes' walk away.
