Welcome to Sydney Australia

 

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

above when thinking about it, but there is much more to 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 tourist can actually travel to Sydney

when they find the temperature most convenient for them.
