Hi all. I am arriving at T1 international airport this coming Saturday and want to get to Sydney Central youth hostel where I'm staying. I will have a large heavy suitcase (with wheels) that I can pull along behind me for a short distance but I won't be able to drag it up (or down) stairs. I could either get the shuttle in (I see you can pre book it for $20 return - is this advisable?) which would mean less struggling with the bag, or alternatively get the train in which might mean struggling with the bag up and down stairs. We took a shuttle into the city a year or so ago and it took ages, first going to the domestic, waiting there, then stopping at various hotels and hostels on the way into the central city. The train sounds great, quick and easy, but the suitcase could be a problem. I think the hostel is very close to the station at the other end but does anyone know if there is an escalator at that end?
