About Sydney

Sydney is the capital city of New South Wales. The city is wrapped around the beautiful and iconic Sydney Harbour. This is one of Australia's oldest, biggest and most diverse cities. From the center of downtown out to the suburbs, there is an endless array of charming and interesting things to see. The dazzling sites of Darling Harbour and the Sydney Harbour Bridge complement each other. The historic city center is a fascinating place to spend the day. The many beaches surrounding the city and Blue Mountains National Park—a World Heritage Site—are great places to either relax or be active.

Australia is truly a country for nature lovers and for many of us, we are itching to get out to explore The Great Outdoors. The good news is as restrictions start to lift, national parks are going to be some of the first areas we can leave our house to roam. We are lucky to live in a country whose sheer size lends itself to a wide variety of landscapes; from mountain ranges and deserts, to tropical rain forests, and beaches. The lush hinterlands, sea cliffs, dense rain forests, and canyons are all there waiting to be explored - now more than ever.

The Bondi to Manly walk is a new beautiful coastline track in Sydney. The full length of the track is 80km so if you want to do the entire walk you should plan your trip however a lot of people will do sections in one day as there are many scenic spots you can access. The track was officially opened on 8 December 2019.

Hyde Park is in the heart of Sydney. Located right in the middle of the road, a large rectangular green space between the high-rise buildings. In addition to the clean lawn, the towering trees for more than 100 years, there are many beautiful statues, fountains, ponds, etc. The environment is really calm and clean. It feels so good to be here. The park was opened to the public as early as 1810. Every holiday, there are many locals who come out for leisure and entertainment, and they are very popular. At the heart of the park is an Apollo fountain built according to Greek mythology, consisting of a group of bronze sculptures. The St. Mary's Basilica across the road is Australia's largest and oldest religious building, and the Gothic spires are particularly beautiful and spectacular.

The University of Sydney in Australia is one of the most interesting places besides the Opera House. On campus, you can see what life in Australia is really like. Some people are running, some are playing sports, yet others are reading under trees and some are even making movies. It is all so interesting!  The most important thing is that the campus is beautifully composed of ancient poetry, paintings and ancient buildings. There are green lawns and lavender growing in the garden. It is a truly beautiful place.

The Sydney Aquarium is the world's largest private aquarium with an area of 3,200 square meters with more than 5,000 species of marine life. There is also a 146-meter transparent undersea tunnel in the aquarium, where visitors can clearly see the various activities of various fish groups and explore the wonders of the underwater world. Unlike other aquariums, the Sydney Aquarium does not provide seals, dolphin shows, etc., and the aquarium is built similar to their natural habitat, the sea. The water for marine life is directly connected to the freshwater port. The marine life living here has basically the same habitat as the sea. There is not much difference. The penguins in the museum are loved by many tourists. They sometimes slide, sometimes show their affection, many children and adults have been reluctant to leave and love taking pictures.
