About Sydney

Sydney is consistently rated as one of the world's best cities. When you visit us, you'll soon understand why.

In Sydney, we enjoy a temperate climate, a reasonable cost of living and a great range of leisure choices, as well as high levels of safety, education and health care.

All in all, our lifestyle is second to none – which makes work, business and study so much easier.

Sydney is Australia's oldest and largest city, set on a stunning harbour. Our State's capital city is home to two of the world's most recognisable icons − the Sydney Opera House and the Sydney Harbour Bridge.

The CBD offers world-class theatres, great shopping, museums and art galleries and restaurants featuring cuisines from around the world.

Within easy reach of Sydney's CBD are sandy beaches, national parks and suburbs with their own unique identities.
