Stop Over in Style at Sydney Airport


Sydney’s Kingsford Smith is Australia’s biggest airport and, with its revamped dining and shopping precincts, there’s plenty to keep travellers busy.

Dine with Wolfgang Puck

The Bistro by Wolfgang Puck is now open at T1 International Terminal as part of the new City View dining precinct. The restaurant is serving bistro fare such as steak frites, Wagyu beef burgers and cinnamon buttermilk pancakes with salted maple butter. Next door is Heineken House, where travellers can have a cold one before hopping onto their flight – a really cold one: Extra Cold is Heineken’s most refreshing beer.
