Sydney

Sydney, the largest city in Australia, is one of the most famous and visually stunning cities on the planet. Home to the iconic Sydney Opera House, a building that is recognizable all over the world, the Sydney Harbor Bridge, the largest steel arch on the planet, the Sydney Cricket Ground, a mecca for Cricket lovers, Bondi Beach, one of the most famous beaches in the world, and world-class culture and cuisine, Sydney offers visitors a dazzling array of unforgettable experiences!

The Greater Sydney region has been inhabited for at least 30,000 years by Aboriginal Australians. It wasn’t until James Cook made landfall at Botany Bay in 1770 that the area came to the attention of Europeans. By 1788, a British penal colony was founded in Sydney and the first fleet of European convicts started arriving. It remained largely a convict town until the 1840s. In 1842, the city of Sydney and a governing council were established, and by the 1850s a flood of migrants moved to the area as gold was discovered in New South Wales and Victoria. Several historical buildings were erected during this era including the University of Sydney, the Australian Museum, the Town Hall and the General Post Office. By 1901, Sydney became the capital of New South Wales. The 1900s brought with it the industrial revolution, the bubonic plague, the Great Depression and a post World War II boom in development and immigration.

Today, Sydney is an important financial capital, tourist hub, host of important sporting events including the Olympics, and one of the world’s most vibrant cities with new, world-class rooftop bars and restaurants regularly popping up. It is also consistently ranked among the top 10 most liveable cities in the world!
