SYDNEY TOURISM


INTRODUCTION

It may seem like something of a cliche, but the major cities of the world are all pretty much alike. Tread the streets of Sydney, New York or Tokyo and you'll see more or less the same things - big buildings, shops, cars, a few parks and lots of people. However the major advantages of Sydney over most other capitals are its beautiful harbour and moderate year-round climate. Added to a fairly prosperous economy, its status as the host of the 2000 Olympics and the major gateway to a largely unpopulated but scenic country and its no wonder that Sydney enjoys the high level of tourism that it does.

Everything else lies in the eye of the beholder. Depending on your point of view, the people here may be thought of as care-free or complacent, wealthy or materialistic, outgoing or insensitive. But if you're in a reasonable state of mind and have enough money to keep you going, it's difficult not to enjoy yourself in Sydney. There are always plenty of things to see and do, provided that you have the momentum to keep going.

GETTING AROUND

Unlike the situation some years ago, there is more than enough printed information to assist people planning to spend time in and around Sydney. Newspapers and magazines (some free), radio and television features and now the internet all give the keen adventurer little excuse not to know where he or she is going and how to get there. The following links, together the the aforementioned printed material should be more than sufficient to assist in this regard.

Sydney, of course, is a big place to get around - every area has its own attractions (many of which remain in the eye of their beholder). For information on the part of Sydney where I live - and its relationship to the greater metropolitan environs - check out the page about my home.
