We'll be flying to Sydney from Melb, a friend suggested getting to the city via a taxi (for day trips etc) however my 4.5yr old and 7yr old will need car/booster seats.
I'm assuming taxi option wouldn't work then?

Taxi in Sydney with kids
According to https://www.nswtaxi.org.au/passengers/faqs, the 4.5 year old would require a car seat, but only 10% of taxis carry such seats.

Taxis are exempt from needing to use car seats (crazy isn't it). So you would ok without the car seats. If that doesn't sit well with you there are trains and buses fit tilt from the airport to the city.

Depending on where you're staying the train aren't bad. And they are only $2.50 on the weekend (maybe only Sunday's...) it would be safer than a taxi without car seats.

Depends on how far out of the city your staying and for how long. As using taxi's can add up quite quickly. The train system is far better an option. I've travelled extensively with DS9 since he was 5 wks old and I've never used a taxi at all. I've only relied on public transport except if we where on the hold coast for a couple of weeks I'd hire us a small car.
