Sydney Airport: how much time do we really have??

Jump to last reply

Arriving from Hobart on Virgin Australia around noon and our connecting flight to Honolulu is at 9:30 pm on Hawaiian Air. We'd like to do something fun in that layover but I'm sure I have closer to 5 hours than 9! Assuming VA will not check the bags through on Hawaiian, what's going to be involved with 1)collecting bags, 2)transferring to the International terminal, and either 3)checking in at Hawaiian (probably too early at noon) or leaving them in left luggage? My gut says move to the International terminal immediately, deal with the bags and THEN grab a train into Sydney for at least lunch and a walk around. We have been to Sydney several times so not trying to really sight-see. Better suggestions from those in the know, please! Thanks much.
