Welcome to Sydney Australia
Sydney, many people worldwide know the name and have the
famous opera house in mind as shown

see and to do as we will show you on this website.
But before we go on with telling you more about this site
just some general information about Sydney.
Sydney, state capital of NSW, is with a population of
approximately 4.4 million the largest city in Australia.
The city is often called "the Harbour City" because the
many boats that go for anchor at one of the city harbours. Sydney was the first British colony in Australia and was
established in the year 1788 by Arthur Phillip, commodore of
the 1st. British fleet at a location called Sydney Cove.
The history of the Sydney region goes actually back in
time for at least 30.000 years. The first indigenous
Australians who lived there centuries ago in Sydney cove are
the Cadigal people. These aboriginal
Australians as Cadigal people are also called where
living from the south or Port Jackson to Petersham region.
The city is surrounded by many nature parks, beautiful
bays with boats and rivers so it is a true paradise for
nature lovers who like water sports like sailing, scuba
diving, jet skying or water skying behind a motorboat.
The famous Sydney Opera House with his unique shape and
Harbour Bridge are just some of the city most
recognisable structures that are shown on many Sydney
tourist information sheets bought at local stores.
Sydney is known for warm summers and cool winters and
rainfall possibilities during all weather seasons.
With January as the warmest month and average daily
temperatures of 27 Degrees Celsius and July as the coldest
month with average daily temperatures of 10 Degrees Celsius

when they find the temperature most convenient for them.
There are many ways of transportation in Sydney. By car,
as most residents do is probably the fastest way as the nine
metro ads or primary road routes do bring you everywhere
fast. Besides that Sydney does also offer also a very
extensive train, bus or ferry network to get to any point of
