Sydney, New South Wales

Sydney is the capital of New South Wales and our most populous city. It surrounds the world’s largest and loveliest natural harbour, and spreads west towards the Blue Mountains. The eastern suburbs range north and south of the harbour entrance, along some of the world’s most famous beaches, including Bondi and Manly. As in most of our state capitals, sport and the arts rub shoulders in the city. The Sydney Cricket Ground is almost as internationally recognisable as the Sydney Opera House.

The City of Sydney is one of the loveliest in the world, with the business districts and suburbs rising from the innumerable inlets and coves of the natural harbour, and clinging to the beaches running north and south of the harbour headlands.

Sydney harbour is far more than a pretty foreground to the city. It’s a working port that handles cargo and cruise ships, enables commuters to take ferries and water taxis to work, and welcomes recreational activities from swimming and fishing to boating: the spectacular start of the Sydney to Hobart yacht race is one the iconic images of the harbour.

Bondi is probably Sydney’s most famous beach, but is just one of the city’s many superb beaches. Australia prides itself on our great outdoor lifestyle, and our beaches are a fine example of why we just can’t resist getting out there.
