City Hopper: Sydney, Australia
My next stop on my round the world tour is Sydney, Australia. Sydney is the capital of New South Wales and the most populous city in Australia. It is on the south-east coast of the Tasmanian Sea and it has a population of 4.6 million people. People who live in Sydney are called ‘Sydneysiders’.
Sydney is the financial and economic center of Australia and as a result it has become a wealthy and prosperous city. The biggest economic sectors in Sydney are business services, retail, manufacturing, health and community services. Sydney also provides about 25% of the country’s total GDP and it is the 16th most expensive city in the world.
So what’s there to do in Sydney you ask? Well the answer is a lot! Sydney has over 70 pristine beaches including the famous Bondi and Manly beaches where you can sun yourself, swim, or surf.
If you’re the more adventuresome type you can do a Bridge Walk across the Sydney Harbor Bridge. Here’s a little video to give you a taste of it. 🙂
Or you can go to the top of Sydney Tower!
Sydney is also the home to the University of Sydney which was established in 1850 and it is Australia’s oldest university as well as the largest in Sydney so that’s something that you might want to see because it’s a beautiful building.
The most well-known attractions in Sydney besides the beaches, opera house, and bridge are the Royal Botanical Gardens, Luna Park, and Sydney Tower.
Here’s a nice little video to show you the city. Enjoy!
