Beautiful Sydney with full of wonders.

Sydney is a dream place for every travellers. It has beautiful view which not only depicts the beaches but also covers the roads, the museums, forest and so on. Sydney attracts me with its different friendly people, a shoppers paradise and a lot more tourist places to see. It has it's world famous Opera house which fulfill the view with Harbour bridge. I love Sydney for it's multi curricular activities and also which accompanied by various locations like darling harbour, Taronga zoo, palm beach, Luna park and many more. A must visit place for everyone :) Go and make memories ..

Adventure and Fun

Needless to say Australia is a beautiful place. For adventure sport lovers try Wollongong near Sydney for SKYDIVING and then try Paragliding.

Aquatic Zoo and the tallest structure in Sydney are a must visit.

Also drove from Sydney to Adelaide but via Sydney Melbourne hwy and then on the way back took the other route. The other route which merges at YARRA onto Syd-Mel Hwy is as beautiful as any.

Sydney Overview

Sydney, the largest and one of the most vibrant cities of Australia is the capital of New South Wales. situated on the south-east Australian coast it covers approximately an area of 1120 square kilometres and is the sixth largest city in the Southern Hemisphere.

It was established in 1788 as the first British colony by Arthur Phillip. Historical records suggest that people have been living in Sydney since 30,000 years. It is believed that almost 8000 indigenous people, the Aboriginals, lived in Sydney before the arrival of the British. Though Sydney has the highest aboriginal population in Australia the aboriginal heritage of the city has mostly been side-tracked by Australia̢۪s white history.

Sydney is the financial and economic hub of Australia. Also known as the harbour city Sydney is a haven for outdoor activities with its semitropical summers and mild winters. Visitors can take a dip in the ocean at Bondi beach, go for a stroll along the coast to Coogee, kayak around the harbour or go for bushwalking in one of the national parks.

Sydney has a number of attractions for the tourist with its museums, galleries, shopping centres, buzzing cafe culture and nightlife, restaurants and adventure sports. It also has two of Australia's most iconic structures -- the Harbour Bridge and the Opera House.

For history lovers there are the Rocks that mark the beginning of the city as a British penal colony as well as the downtown Victorian structures that are juxtaposed with modern monoliths.

The city has hosted many sporting events including the 2000 Summer Olympics and the finals of the 2003 Rugby World Cup and is one of the Alpha cities of the world. This harbour city is sun soaked with its golden beaches and world class surf, thus epitomising Australia’s “surf, sand and sunâ€Â tagline.
