Hi all. I'm flying BNE-SYD-HNL return with Qantas next week. I've always flown direct for overseas flights so I'm wondering how baggage works with a domestic connection. Upon returning from Honolulu, would I need to collect my baggage in Sydney and pass through Customs before rechecking it at the domestic terminal or would it be checked right through to Brisbane? I've posed the question to Qantas but they're a bit slow in replying. Thanks.

In HNL, they will check and tag your bag to BNE, with SYD listed as a transit port. When you get off the plane in SYD, you need to collect your bag, go through customs, then recheck your bag to BNE. You only give it to them, showing your ?BNE boarding pass. You then do another security check, before catching the airport transfer bus to the Domestic terminal. This is all assuming it is on Qantas.
Thanks for your help.
