Activities/Attractions: Sydney, Australia’s gateway city and the capital of New South Wales (and the site for the 2000 Olympics) is built around one of the most beautiful harbours in the world, and along kilometres of golden beaches stretching north and south of the city on the shores of the Pacific Ocean.

Sydney is a friendly city offering visitors a variety of attractions and activities. The beaches and harbour play a major role in the lives of Sydney-siders with yachting, surfing, sailboarding, swimming and water-skiing available.

Many national parks and protected areas of natural bushland surround the city, and the picturesque Blue Mountains are a 90 minute journey from the city, offering walking, camping and picnicking as popular pastimes for visitors and residents alike.

Perhaps Sydney’s most famous landmark is the spectacular Opera House with its graceful ‘sails’. The Opera House has become Sydney's cultural centre, offering opera, ballet, concerts, drama and film. The harbour foreshore is home to the historic Rocks area, the site of Australia’s first European settlement in 1788, and now home to a variety of galleries, museums, restaurants and shops. Also overlooking the harbour are the Royal Botanic Gardens, Sydney Aquarium and Taronga Zoo.

Sydney, with a population of almost 4 million, and covering almost 1120 square kilometres (700 square miles), is a remarkably easy city to move around in. An excellent train, bus and ferry service covers all points of the greater metropolitan area. Roadways, although congested in peak hour times, are generally well planned and driving is not too harrowing an experience.

Unless visitors to Sydney are specifically seeking out friends in outlying areas, most will have no real need to travel too far away from the central city area and the harbour. Most Sydney tourist attractions are either within the central business district, close to the CBD, or at points around the harbour. The exceptions are Bondi and Manly - surf beach suburbs situated south and north of Sydney Heads.

Sydney isn't just about the Harbour Bridge or the Opera House. There are so many things to see and do! Here's a list to keep you busy.
