Sydney's laid-back outdoor lifestyle and physical allure make it one of the world's easiest and most pleasant cities to visit. The people who live here are a friendly, energetic bunch with a tell-it-like-it-is approach to life as visitors to the Sydney 2000 Olympic Games found out for themselves.
When it comes to which city is Australia's true global city, there's no argument. It's Sydney – with its sense of style, its love of sport and exuberant celebrations including New Year's Eve and Australia Day. Sydney's harbour is its natural playground, the dominant factor in so much of what the city has to offer. The city has a wide-ranging cultural life, dynamic food scene and vibrant cityscape of outstanding contemporary and colonial architecture. Iconic beaches and five major national parks deliver unforgettable experiences.
Gateway to Australia and set on one of the world's most stunning harbours, Sydney extends north and south of the harbour in a golden chain of easy-to-reach, inner-city beaches.
Sydney is easily accessed by air using Brindabella Airlines. Once there, a public transport network of buses, City Rail trains, monorails and Sydney ferries, service Sydney's major tourist attractions including beaches and shopping precincts.
