In Australia, you'll have a choice of arrival airports, notably Sydney (SYD) and Melbourne Airport (MEL). At Sydney Airport, you can take a roughly 13min train directly from the airport to the city's central station, or (if the long journey has you tired) you can take an approximately 20min taxi ride. If you land in Melbourne, you can take the Skybus, Starbus or VHA shuttle to be in the city in 20-40min, depending on traffic and the number of stops on the bus route you take. You could also hop in a taxi at the taxi rank outside the airport.
