is the capital of New South Wales, being both a place
for business and pleasure filled with all the cosmopolitan amenities such as shopping,
restaurants, nightclubs. Some have compared this city to San Francisco. One of
the main attractions is the outdoors, the Pacific Ocean gleams with sunshine and
sailing boats. There are many waterways and national parks surrounding the beaches.
Sydney has the highest aboriginal population in Australia, walking down the streets
you will find little evidence that it has anything other than a white/asian heritage.
There are many museums, theatres and dance centers. Sydney developed into one
of the world’s greatest cities when the Olympics were held. In the events,
Sydney was transformed, the streets remodeled, and new street furniture were injected.
This is what made Sydney an easier city to navigate in. The weather is also a
big factor of why one would want to visit, tropical summers and mild winters result
in year long fun. There are many harbor views, Hyde Park is one of the many attractions
that one should visit.
Some attractions to see:
Sydney Tower & Skytour

This is home to many koalas, meerkats and dingos, with 75 acres of bushland.
The zoo also features a great view of the Sydney Harbor. They also have a platypus
house and a rainforest aviary. The nocturnal animals are kept underground, as
they need nighttime conditions.
Bradleys Head and Military roads. (02) 9969-2777
The Blue Mountains are among the most serene attractions to see as a visitor
to Sydney. Many eucalyptus trees drop oil into the atmosphere, creating blue
light rays, thus creates the azure haze. The park is surrounded by resort villages
for long stays and day trips. Transportation by trains leaves for the mountains
daily from Sydney’s Central Railway Station.
