Sydney, the largest
and oldest Australian city is more than just a place to be seen. It is
an experience not to be missed.
No metropolis in the
world comes close to matching its stunning and broad Harbour setting with
its many inlets and bays all contributing to a spectacular dimension of
At weekends the Harbour
is alive with sails and power crafts and added to the natural beauty are
the twin, man-made landmarks famous worldwide - the Harbour Bridge and
the Opera House. The Opera House, created by Danish architect Joern Utzon,
is one of the most innovative buildings of the 20th century. The Bridge,
linking the north and central parts of the city was considered one of
the engineering wonders of the modern world when completed in 1932.
Governor Arthur Phillip arrived in Sydney in 1788 with a fleet of 11 ships
and 1030 colonists (736 of them convicts), Sydney has continued to grow
into an exuberant and stylish city.
Over four million
Sydney-siders reside throughout the 4000 square kilometres of suburbs,
stretching 55 kilometres inland to the foot of the Blue Mountains and
70 kilometres from north to south.
The heart of Sydney
centres around Sydney Cove and its immediate area and over the years the
city’s skyline has evolved into an angular profile similar to a tall glass.

their primitive homes is Australia's oldest residential area. It has stubbornly
clung to a crooked-street charm that many Sydney residents and visitors
boasts Sydney's most handsome thoroughfare with its solid sandstone
and former townhouses once owned by wealthy colonists. The Botanic Gardens,
Hyde Park and Centennial Park are the city's breathing spaces and today
are landmarks that even Sydney-siders are still amazed by.
Inner city suburbs
retain the aura of Victoriana from which they sprang and have further
evolved taking on characters of their own. The charm of the 19th century
terraces and cottages has become increasingly appreciated and in many
cases whole streets have been brought back to their old graceful dignity.
