    T2 is under Maintenance / Construction. NZ Air lounge is in a temporary location. Still pretty good but it was better before.

    If you're flying from T2, remember to have some food before going through customs and security. There are very few food options after that!

    To park in the airport, you can save some $ by booking online with your credit card. Then insert the same card at the barrier to gain access. Gives one hour before and an hour after grace period

    On arrival, use the ePassport machines if your nationality is supported. Skip the long immigration queues!

    Ho-hum. It's just an airport. Park Royal (the only attached hotel) is very convenient if you need to stay nearby, or want runway-views.

    3 from international arrivals mean the exit (local customs don't guide you, they just tell you to keep moving and don't even glance)

    As with all Australian airports, it depends on your security experience. Smaller than you'd think, feels like it could use an expansion.

    If you're unlucky, immigration officers are on strike and only a handful of counters open for airbusloads of passengers arriving. Get ready to stand for 2 hrs in line.

    There are now fewer places to fill in your customs card before you join the queue. To streamline things just take a bunch home and fill it in before you head to the airport.
