At the terminal
If you arrive early in the day, you can leave your luggage at the ‘Bag Drop’, which opens from 8:30am – from there you can enjoy hanging out at Circular Quay until your designated “check in” time.
If you wish to wait at the terminal there is some shaded/sheltered seating available close to the terminal, but this can fill quickly.
The closest public toilets are directly opposite the terminal entrance (portable toilet block) and under Circular Quay railway station.
Luggage storage is available by Smarte Carte in Circular Quay.
