Sydney (Kingsford Smith) Airport International Terminal Print Page
By the 1960s the need for a new international terminal at the airport had become apparent, and work commenced in late 1966. Much of the new terminal was designed by Paynter and Dixon Industries. The plans for the design are held by the State Library of New South Wales. The new terminal was officially opened on 3 May 1970, by Queen Elizabeth II.
