Smoking at Sydney Airport (SYD)

Airport Rating

Before and After Security Smoking

Smoking is only permitted in designated areas outside most of the terminals.

Terminal 1, International

Update Nov 2019 from Richard C.: Just to update, there is an outdoor area at each end of terminal 1 near the drop off point. But no smoking inside the terminal at all. It is correct you can't smoke if in transit, unless you have enough time to leave the terminal (i.e. enter Australia) and then would need to redo immigration and security in plenty of time. I don't know how long their 'exit' is though.

Downstairs of T1 also has outdoor smoking in various places and the car parks areas, well signposted.

Terminal 2: Domestic:

There are no smoking facilities inside or outside the terminal

Terminal 3: Quantas Domestic

Update from Blake, Dec 2018: If you are from OS and travelling domestic within Australia, qantas T3 is the only terminal that allows smoking right outside the terminal. Much more relaxing arrival or departure.   

For connecting flights you must enter Australia and smoke outside terminal then go through Security again for your flight.
