Sydney, what should have been the ‘capitol’ of Australia, is a delightful out of control and haphazard metropolis’s. Take way the harbour and Sydney would not exist, but because of the harbour and the exploitation there-of, the city well and truly fires. The Bridge, the Rocks, the Opera House and Sydney Cove will forever conspire to delight the world. Sydney constituents are only too delighted to get on that bandwagon.
Any visitor should allow a week, just to take in the classic tourist offer. This need not be an expensive menu; public transport day trippers, walking, the beaches and what’s free will allow the visitor plenty to delight in. Finding somewhere for your vehicle in the metro area is not an option in down town Sydney.
Sydney was established in 1788 at Sydney Cove by Arthur Phillip, commodore of the First Fleet as a penal colony. The city is built on hills surrounding Port Jackson which is commonly known as Sydney Harbour. The fact the founders were felons to this day has determined the culture of the city.
Sydney has a reputation as an international centre for commerce, arts, fashion, culture, entertainment, music, education and tourism. The New Year fireworks display being the absolute greatest in the world. Time your visit for the New Year. You will not regret the decision.
