The first design photos of the $ 5.3 billion futuristic international airport have been revealed.
Badgerys Creek airport will not be operational until 2026, but the public has had a first look at the ultramodern terminal.
The 1780-hectare airport site – 50 km west of the CBD – will include a modern terminal surrounded by dozens of airline gates, with two large runways.

The interior of the terminal will be equipped with wooden ceilings and vertically growing gardens.
A team from London's Zaha Hadid Architects and Sydney's Cox Architecture designed the plans after winning the design contract for the interior.
The release of the design plans anticipates important earthworks that are expected to start early next year.
This will be followed by runways, runways, railways and terminal construction.
But the construction of the ultramodern terminal will only start in 2022.
The Coalition called the terminal an & # 39; ever-in-a-generation infrastructure project that comes to life & # 39 ;.

"This is the largest gateway to Australia and these designs are a new step to realizing it," said Prime Minister Scott Morrison.
Cox project director David Holm said the architects were inspired by & # 39; the unique local flora of West Sydney and the amazing Australian light to create an unmistakable regional identity & # 39 ;.
The airport will handle up to 10 million passengers a year when it opens its doors in December 2026.
By the early 2060s, the airport is expected to receive up to 80 million passengers annually.
Graham Millett, CEO of Western Sydney Airport, said the terminal will be built for & # 39; modular expansion because of the steadily increasing capacity.
"The layout of the terminal will be combined with technology and excellent customer service to offer passengers a reliable, fun and stress-free airport experience," Millett said.
The construction will create 11,000 new jobs in West Sydney.
Within the first five years after opening, an additional 28,000 jobs will be generated.
