About Sydney

Sydney is a cosmopolitan harbour city that is both a feast for the senses and a major commercial, artistic and industrial centre. The city is endlessly fascinating in its beauty and diversity, matched by the friendly, relaxed nature of its people.

The harbour and beaches play a major role in the leisure and sporting lives of Sydneysiders - yachting, surfing, sail-boarding, swimming, boating, fishing and waterskiing are all popular activities. Many national parks and areas of natural bushland surround the city.

The Sydney Opera House, with its graceful 'sails', has become the city’s cultural centre. It is home to the Sydney Symphony, the Australian Chamber Orchestra, the Australian Ballet and the Sydney Theatre Company. Adjacent to the Opera House is the Botanic Gardens. A short stroll along the harbour foreshore takes you past world-class restaurants and galleries and leads to the 'Rocks' precinct – which has many historic buildings and locales. It is now a bustling hub for shopping, cuisine, and weekend craft and food markets.

Sydney Film Festival  Wednesday 5th June  for two weeks 2013. Entries are now open for the festival. Selected films will be announced and screen at cinemas throughout Sydney.

Vivid - A Festival of Light, Music and Ideas. The festival includes light projections on the Sydney Opera House as well as music performances, discussions and debates. From May  - June 2013.

Some Sydney facts...

  • There are 37 beaches along Sydney's coastline, from Palm Beach in the north, to Cronulla in the south.
