The 400 bus goes "direct" from the airport to Anzac Parade, which runs along the west side of UNSW, just across the street from International House and New College. Make sure you catch the 400 bus to Bondi Junction, not Burwood. The Burwood 400 goes the wrong way a long way. The stop you want is about 50m down from New College, which you'll pass on your right. The trip is about 30 minutes.

This link shows buses for flights arriving on the Sunday - edit the date and reverse origin/destination for more options.

It's 7 sections, which is $3.90 (student concessions from interstate don't apply).

The manly option is, of course, walking direct. It's only about six kilometers walk (the bus goes in a funny direction).

If you're planning to get around Sydney a bit, I'd suggest buying one Blue (2 sections) and one Brown (5 sections) Travelten (kinda like Multiriders, but per-trip (not time-based)). The 2-section will get you to nearby shops in Randwick (three stops on the 400 towards Bondi). The 5-section will get you to the city. The two together will get you to the airport.

A taxi will cost anywhere between $16-$25, depending on traffic.
