It was almost the most awkward of rendezvous.

James Packer's ex Erica Baxter flew into Sydney from Los Angeles on Thursday morning, narrowly avoiding her former husband's rumoured love interest, Miranda Kerr.

Baxter, 36, who divorced the billionaire casino baron last year, is now based in the United States and has barely been seen in her home country since the split.

Carrying one of the couple's children on her hip, Baxter passed photographers wordlessly as she exited the airport just before 7am.

A few minutes later Kerr arrived at the same airport to leave the country, wearing a beaded jacket and dark glasses.

She has been in Australia  less than a week with her son Flynn, and is believed to have spent time with family and caught up with friends.

Kerr has denied she is dating Packer, saying she is not interested in a relationship following her  split from movie star Orlando Bloom last year. 

Neither women has commented on Packer's bizarre curbside punch up with his long-time friend David Gyngell outside his Bondi Beach on Sunday. 

One of the photographers who captured the angry brawl told Fairfax Media he had been hoping to catch a photograph of Packer arriving home - instead he got  the two business heavyweights trading punches and wrestling on the ground.

The images were bought by News Corporation Australia for close to $250,000.
