I'm going to Hong Kong this month and have decided to spend my first night in Macau. I heard somewhere that you can get the ferry to Macau from Hong Kong International Airport (via transfer bus I guess). Does anyone know how this works? Do I check my bags through from Sydney to Macau or do I have to collect my bags in Hong Kong and take them on the ferry with me? Any help appreciated.

Most of the process is described here:
Hong Kong International Airport - Passenger Guide

I believe you don't have to worry about getting your bag checked through, but will need to retain your bag tag and present it to them. They'll then go and find your bag, and get it put on the transfer bus etc.

If you take the ferry direct from HKIA to Macau then you don't pass through Hong Kong Immigration, but do that when you alight in Macau. Note that there are only a handful of ferry services a day from the Airport direct to Macau. Whereas if you head into Hong Kong city and do the walk from Hong Kong Station, there's a ferry every 15mins or so.

As per Mals advice, you don't need to (and I think only CX passengers can anyway) check your bag through to Macau. But at the airport there's a Macau ferry transfer desk where you can buy the ticket and give them your baggage receipts to go collect your bags. Then I think you hop on a bus that takes you out to the ferry.

I've never done the Macau to Airport direct thing myself because the ferries are always at awkward times to get the flights I needed. So I'd usually just go from Macau to Hong Kong then catch the train out to the airport. Its a little bt more expensive but much more practical in terms of time - even with all the repeated immigration processes.
