Sydney city guide

Brief History

The history of Sydney is the history of Australia itself. Founded in 1788 as a British penal colony, the city is among Australia’s oldest and today it is certainly among the most famous. With its ideal climate, friendly residents, unique sights, and affluent economy, modern-day Sydney has earned a reputation as one of the most pleasant and livable cities on Earth.

Transportation

Flights to Sydney are served by Sydney Kingsford Smith International Airport, the busiest airport in the country. Sydney Airport is very close to the city (only 9 km), so getting into town is easy and inexpensive. Options include suburban trains, buses, taxis, and rental cars. None of these is terribly difficult to find or navigate.

Getting around Sydney is as easy as any city in the world CityRide trains, a widespread bus system, and a fairly well developed bikeshare program are all good options for getting from place to place. Central Sydney is also extremely compact, so walking is a strong possibility. With 300 sunny days a year mild sea breezes, the weather in Sydney makes getting around on foot especially appealing.

Popular Attractions

  • Of course, the first place many tourists head for is the Sydney Harbor, where the Harbor Bridge and Sydney Opera House, perhaps the most iconic landmark in the world, are located. Savvy visitors will tell you that you can get the best pictures of the Opera House from the Rocks district, just across the water.
  • Even in the middle of this bustling city, you can find exotic wildlife such as lorikeets, giant flying foxes (actually a species of bat), and other animals. There are also countless zoos, aquariums, and nature parks either in the city or just outside of it.
  • Some of the best sandy surf beaches in the world are in Sydney. They are ideal for swimming, surfing, sunbathing, and a variety of water sports. Most of the beaches are a short distance outside the city center, so you may have to take a bus or a taxi to get there.

Food

Sydney is known for being an excellent destination for culinary tourism, but it doesn’t have a unique cuisine of its own. The seafood is good hear, but the real Australian dish is, of course, steak. Some of the best steakhouses in the country are in Sydney, and there are a variety of restaurants to suit any budget – be sure not to leave Sydney without trying at least one.

Tips for Travelers

  • The beaches of Sydney are extremely popular – and with good reason – but a few precautions must be taken if you plan to spend time there. For starters, never touch a jellyfish or anything that could be a jellyfish, since Australia has much more powerful varieties of the stinging invertebrates than other places. Also, never swim outside of the netted enclosures as there is a (very slight) risk of encountering a shark.
