Something About Sydney,Australia

Posted by Farrez Hakim

Sydney is Australia's largest and most cosmopolitan city and is the capital of New South Wales, the most heavily populated state of Australia.

Sydney is situated on one of the world's most beautiful and famous harbours. Sydney also boasts beautiful beaches, fantastic shops, restaurants, history and culture. Sydney's many highlights include the Harbour Bridge, the Opera House, Centrepoint Tower, The Rocks, the stunning harbour and the white sands of Bondi, Manly and beyond.

Sydney is also home to beautiful National Parks, the Royal Botanic Gardens, many harbour front picnic locations and heritage areas.

The people of Sydney are proud to have been chosen to host the 2000 Olympic Games. Preparations are well and truly underway, with construction at the Olympic site at Homebush.

Central Sydney is compact and mostly accessible on foot. Circular Quay is the water gateway to Sydney, and is close to The Rocks, the Opera House and the Royal Botanic Gardens. A little further away is the main shopping district and Darling Harbour. The CBD of Sydney is very easy to get around with the parallel streets being long and tightly spacedphoto.

Travelling East will bring you to Kings Cross and Paddington. Further on you pass through green and wealthy suburbs before reaching splendid beaches including Bondi. Sydney's urban sprawl has pushed west to Penrith at the foot of the Blue Mountains.

The northern and southern suburbs of Sydney are divided by the Harbour. To travel between the two you can use the famous Harbour Bridge, the underwater tunnel or enjoy a spectacular ferry ride.Sydney's northern suburbs are renowned for their parks and tree-lined streets. A spectacular coastline leads north from Manly to Palm beach.

Just south of Sydney central is Botany Bay, where Captain James Cook first anchored in 1770. Sydney's southern boundary is marked by the Royal National Park with its wildlife, walking trails and unspoiled beaches.

The first white settlement of Australia was made in Sydney in 1788 when Captain Phillip landed with the First Fleet of convicts and settlers at Sydney Cove.
