Sydney is Australia’s premier city. There’s an attitude of let’s have fun that permeates everything in this city. If there’s a celebration to be had, Sydney does it up big. This is one of the best cities in the world in which to celebrate New Year’s Eve and the festivel mood continues on throughout the year.
The largest city in Australia but not the capital (Can you name the capital? Answer below), Sydney has double the space of New York and half of the population. What you’ll find is a city built around the water preserving much of its open space. The Opera House and the Sydney Harbour Bridge are the impressive landmarks that symbolize the city. Projecting out into Port Jackson, the Opera House is probably best viewed from the top of the Harbour Bridge, but that excursion may not be for the faint of heart. Climbing to the summit takes about 3 ½ hours, start to finish, and reaches a peak of 134 meters (439.63 feet). Some say it’s the best way to conquer a fear of heights - you decide.
The Rocks, the old town historic section of Sydney, is located across from the Opera House. First settled in 1788, the European Colonists' homes and businesses have been restored and now house trendy restaurants, boutiques and galleries. The Rocks Market, held every weekend at the north end of George Street and Playfair, is a wild streetmarket featuring everything imaginable.
Next to The Rocks is Circular Quay, the center for water traffic in the harbour. Ferries, cruises and jet boat rides leave from here and you can pick and choose among the destinations. One spot to consider is Fort Denison, located in the center of Sydney Harbour. Originally a prison, then turned into a fort after two American warships circled the island in the middle of the night, you can now visit the museum or watch the harbour traffic while enjoying lunch in the café.
The Royal Botanic Gardens, covering 30 hectares, is an oasis in the center of the city. Two aspects of the garden are of particular interest: Cadi Jam Ora, the First Encounters Garden and Mrs. Macquaries chair. Cadi Jam Ora is a garden devoted to the Cadigal people, the Aboriginal inhabitants of central Sydney. The garden, filled with plants native to the area during their time, tells the story of the Cadigal people and their first encounters with the Europeans during the settlement/invasion. Mrs. Macquarie was the wife of Lachlan Macquarie, Governor of New South Wales in the early 1800’s. The Macquaries lived in Government House, located within the Gardens and open to the public for tours, and Mrs. Macquarie used to walk out to a rocky point overlooking the Harbour and watch the ships come in. A chair carved out of the solid stone is where she used to sit and nowadays it’s the best location to take pictures with the Opera House and Harbour Bridge as your backdrop.
