Typically a barista gets paid from $21/hour as base rate in Sydney. More experienced baristas will earn more.

To help you make an informed decision, we ask barista job seekers to specify their asking wage (if they have any). For example, a barista candidate may specify that he’s expecting $27/hour as the minimum. This will quickly help you identify if your venue can meet his asking wage requirement. Keep in mind that this figure is often negotiable.
