Sydney

Sydney is the capital of the state of New South Wales in Australia. It is the most populous city in Australia and Oceania. The metropolis is located on the east coast of Australia. It surrounds Port Jackson and extends for 70 km (43.5 miles) on the periphery towards the Blue Mountains to the west, Hawkesbury to the north, the Royal National Park to the south and Macarthur to the southwest.

Sydney is made up of 658 suburbs spread across 33 local government areas. Residents of the town are known as “Sydneysiders”. In June 2020, Sydney’s estimated metropolitan population was 5,367,206. This means that the city is home to about 66% of the state’s population. The city’s nicknames are the ‘Emerald City’ and the ‘Harbour City’.

Indigenous Australians have lived in the Sydney area for at least 30,000 years. Thousands of engravings have been preserved throughout the region.
This makes it one of the richest cities in Australia in terms of Aboriginal archaeological sites. About 29 clan groups of the Eora Nation inhabited the region at the time of European contact.

Despite being one of the most expensive cities in the world, Sydney often ranks in the top ten most livable cities in the world. It has been classified as an Alpha Global City by Globalization and World Cities Research Network, indicating its influence in the region and around the world. Ranked 11th in the world for economic opportunity, Sydney has an advanced market economy with strengths in finance, manufacturing and tourism. There is a significant concentration of foreign banks and multinational corporations in Sydney and the city is promoted as the financial capital of Australia and one of the major financial centers of Asia Pacific. Founded in 1850, the University of Sydney was Australia’s first university and is considered one of the world’s leading universities.
Sydney is also home to the oldest library in Australia, the State Library of New South Wales, opened in 1826.

Sydney has hosted major international sporting events such as the 2000 Summer Olympics. The city ranks among the top 15 most visited cities in the world, with millions of tourists flocking to see the city’s sights every year. With over 1,000,000 ha (2,500,000 acres) of nature reserves and parks, notable natural features include Sydney Harbour, the Royal National Park, the Royal Botanic Garden and Hyde Park, the oldest park in the country. Built attractions such as the Sydney Harbor Bridge and the World Heritage-listed Sydney Opera House are also well known to international visitors. The main passenger airport serving the metropolitan area is Kingsford-Smith Airport, one of the world’s oldest continuously operating airports. Established in 1906, the Central Station is the state’s largest and busiest train station and the main hub of the city’s rail network.
