| Find City | Sydney Australia Darling Harbour Bridge Ask anyone in Sydney what is the best city in the world and they will proudly tell you that Sydney is probably top of the list. With sandy white beaches and waves that will make the next Hawaiian surfer envious, Sydney has a reputation of being a warm, clean and beautiful city.

It has been over 200 years since the famous Captain James Cook first dropped anchor in Sydney Cove in the year 1788. Sydney has grown from a small colony of less than 1000 convicts, settlers and sailors to a bursting, cosmopolitan city of more than 3 1/2 million people. Today, Sydney can boast that it has one of the largest city in Australia. It could also be argued that she has one of the most romantic harbour in the world.

If you are thinking about exploring the cityscape then you would probably need an entire week to see and do everything and that does not include outside of Sydney. For a start, you will probably want to visit some of Sydney's famous icons such as the Opera House, the Sydney Harbour Bridge and many more. You even explore the entire city for less than $20 using the Sydney Explorer.

(See Sydney Transport for more details.)

TIP: Since the weather in Sydney during the summer months can reach up to 30 degrees celcius, it is advisable that you wear a hat and sunblock. Most buses and trains will take you to the place you wish to go which is probably cheaper than taxis. tourist information booths are available throughout the entire city.
