I'd be very surprised and annoyed if you couldn't get the free transfer bus with your int. flight being on one of VAs partner airlines - Just saying

Show your onward flight details for the day and all should be well.... Should.... ??

If connecting Domestic to international on a through ticket at SYD on check in at your outbound port (e.g. ADL) you would be given your boarding passes in a folder with a tear off ticket for the bus. Since these are separate tickets I don't know if that would happen.

FWIW, the VA Bus is actually the public TBus - it heads landside after picking up from downstairs Gate 44(?) to pick up paying passengers there before heading to international T1.

I did an international to domestic t'fer yesterday from a Delta LAX-SYD (06:20 hrs) to a Virgin SYD-MELB flt (08:30).
Very streamline process. Landed, cleared through customs ect and arrived at domestic (via bus) in prob just over one hour.
Virgin desk staff were very helpful.

I have been given a transfer pass by VA before when coming off an EY flight on 2 different tickets.
