Sydney Travel Guide
About SydneyThe capital of NSW is the oldest and the most beautifully situated city in Australia. A fashionable and stylish city, images of Sydney have become symbols of Australia throughout the world. If shopping is what you are after, then you’ll be spoilt for choice with trendy boutiques found throughout. The Rocks is renowned for shopping, dining and sightseeing, while further out there are marketplaces in Flemington, Balmain, Darlinghurst and Paddington, well worth the visit. Chinatown near Haymarket is another colourful attraction, which leads to the Darling Harbour area, For evening entertainment Sydney is the nations capital. From the Opera House to buskers, every taste is catered for. Restaurants are also varied and cosmopolitan in character, offering every combination of cuisine, decor and atmosphere. The environment is matched by a sunny climate without extremes which makes the most of the golden surf beaches to the north and south of the city, and the rugged mountains to the west.
