Advice on travel from the airport:

If you are flying in from overseas or domestically, we recommend you to use the "Skybus" service:

It will only cost you $16 (or $26 return) to get to the city, so it is much cheaper than a taxi (about $55). It also provides a free hotel connection which will deliver you to where you stay in the city, for free.
