Yes, you should be able to do that. I have done it at LHR. Just remember to factor in security-and custom clearance time on the way out of SYD.

As far as I know, the smoking lounges, airside, have been closed.

I'm pretty sure that smoking is allowed at the outdoor observation deck and bar area.

4 hours... it takes 2 hours to clear customs and 2 ours to do it again... not really worth it
