The largest and oldest city in Australia, despite not being the capital, Sydney, located in Jackson Bay, is the countrys international point of reference and the cultural centre and most important tourist destination in Australia. It has the largest population density, and despite this, is one of the youngest cities in the world. It was founded at the end of the 18th century as a British colony, from whence comes its linguistic tradition.
Sydney has mild temperatures all the year round, which are slightly lower during the northern summer solstice. Despite being a remote destination, it is a very popular one, due to its position as the gateway to Australia and its many sites of natural, ethnic and cultural interest.
From the tourism standpoint, the hotspots of Sydney are the opera house, which is one of the most impressive structures in the world, the bridge in Sydney harbour, the Chinese quarter, Darling Harbour, the Olympic Park or Newtown. However, what this city is most famous for are its long beaches, true paradises for enjoying the sun by either relaxing or practising sports.
A modern but peaceful city, a place through which to stroll and enjoy leisure activities, that will impress all those who visit Australia and have the chance to use its infrastructures as a fantastic starting point for visiting the enormous island of Australia.
