 Went to Sydney alot. School excursions, Concerts, to go see some sights. 

Sydney /ˈsɪdni/[6] is the state capital of New South Wales and the most populous city in Australia and Oceania.[7] Located on Australia's east coast, the metropolis surrounds the world's largest natural harbour, and sprawls towards the Blue Mountains to the west.[8] Residents of Sydney are known as "Sydneysiders". Sydney is the second official seat and second official residence of the Governor-General of Australia and the Prime Minister of Australia and many federal ministries maintain substantial presences in Sydney.

The Sydney area has been inhabited by indigenous Australians for at least 30,000 years.[9] The first British settlers, led by Captain Arthur Phillip, arrived in 1788 to found Sydney as a penal colony, the first European settlement in Australia.[10] Since convict transportation ended in the mid-19th century, the city has transformed from a colonial outpost into a major global cultural and economic centre. As at June 2016 Sydney's estimated population was 5,005,358.[11] In the 2011 census, 34 percent of the population reported having been born overseas,[3] representing many different nationalities and making Sydney one of the most multicultural cities in the world. There are more than 250 different languages spoken in Sydney and about one-third of residents speak a language other than English at home.[12][13]

Despite being one of the most expensive cities in the world,[14] the 2014 Mercer Quality of Living Survey ranks Sydney tenth in the world in terms of quality of living,[15] making it one of the most livable cities.[16] It is classified as an Alpha+ World City by the Globalization and World Cities Research Network, indicating its influence in the region and throughout the world.[17][18] Ranked eleventh in the world for economic opportunity,[19]Sydney has an advanced market economy with strengths in finance, manufacturing and tourism. Its gross regional product was $337 billion in 2013, the largest in Australia.[20] There is a significant concentration of foreign banks and multinational corporations in Sydney and the city is promoted as one of Asia Pacific's leading financial hubs.[21][22][23][24]

In addition to hosting events such as the 2000 Summer Olympics, Sydney is amongst the top fifteen most-visited cities in the world,[25] with millions of tourists coming each year to see the city's landmarks.[26] Its natural features include Sydney Harbour, the Royal National Park, and the Royal Botanic Garden. Man-made attractions such as the Sydney Opera HouseSydney Tower and the Sydney Harbour Bridge are also well known to international visitors.

i spent about 2 months in Australia because my mom had to stay there for 2 months for her job and i was too young to stay home alone and so my mom took me with her and it was an amazing experience, i got to hold a baby koala, feed kangaroos, snorkel in the great coral barrier and many more, i would definitely go there again if i could!

Traveled to Sydney, Australia via Quantas Airlines. Stayed for one week and attended two concerts at The Sydney Opera House during Vive Live. Also hiked through The Blue Mountains, saw the Jenolan Caves and quite a few gorgeous waterfalls. A treat I'll never forget.

December 2012 - Sydney to visit Minty and meet Sanjay. Took ferry to Manly - favourite bit! Sydney beautiful for holiday but too hot to live and work. Fern arrived later on, we watched New Year firework at Sydney Harbour Bridge and stayed at Sanjay's sister's house.

I went to Australia for the first time last year and i travelled around the East and South coasts with my family and one of the last places i visited was Sydney, I was staying with my Auntie and Uncle for a while and we decided to travel down to the Sydney Ophra House, so we went on a boat and we travelled across the river towards Sydney Zoo, and we went past the Ophra House and we had a great day at Sydney Zoo. I really enjoyed visiting Sydney and I am hoping to travel to Australia again next year, to meet my family again.
