Sydney airport is a complex containing both the international airport and the domestic airport, but unlike many other busy airports neither part is open 24 hours.

I usually work in a backpacker hostel in Sydney so I've dug up this information for guests who wanted to sleep at the airport to catch 6am flights numerous times, but right now I'm having a lot of trouble finding the details.

During which hours are Sydney Domestic and Sydney International closed overnight?

As Murphy's Law dictates, the very next Google search I did for this info after giving up and submitting it as a question here, was successful!

From the Sydney Airport website:

Sydney Airport opening times are:

T1 International terminal is opened everyday from 3AM to 11:00PM (0300 to 2300)
• Customs are opened for departures passenger processing at 4AM daily (0400)

T2 Domestic terminal is opened everyday from 4AM to 11:00PM (0400 to 2300)

So I wonder what happens if you're trying to sleep there - will they just turf you outside? – Mark Mayo Oct 9 '13 at 7:19
@MarkMayo: I encourage you to branch off a new question! – hippietrail Oct 9 '13 at 7:20
@MarkMayo Not from firsthand experience, but I have no doubt they would boot you out. – dlanod Dec 8 '13 at 10:57
