Discover how Sydney’s new airport will help shape the future of Western Sydney.

While at The Experience Centre our staff will be able to point out some of the key features of Sydney's newest airport, being built right outside the windows. The site is one of the most exciting new projects in Western Sydney and in fact, Australia!

The interactive pods have information and videos of the airport including artist impressions of what the terminal will look like.
