Sydney is a great city in which to spend time wandering, discovering the historic nooks and crannies that make it so interesting. The Rocks Historic Precinct has been well preserved, Circular Quay is a focal point for Sydney Ferries, and the Sydney Opera House and the Sydney Harbour Bridge dominate the centre of the City.

History of Sydney: Late January of 1788, the First Fleet under the command of Captain Arthur Phillip landed at Botany Bay, the site of what is today the Sydney International Airport. A few days later, the settlement site was moved north to the area that is today known as The Rocks Historic Precinct. The just over 1,000 settlers, soldiers and convicts in the First Fleet had a hard time of it over the next few years, but from their efforts both Australia and the City of Sydney have established themselves.

 Satellite view of australian travel destination SydneyGeography of Sydney: Sydney Harbour (Port Jackson) stretches inland from the Pacific Ocean in the east to Paramatta in the west. It is one of the most beautiful and scenic natural harbours in the world. The red dot on the Satellite View is where The Rocks Historic Precinct, the Sydney Harbour Bridge and the Sydney Opera House are located. The Central Business District of Sydney runs south from the red dot, and Darling Harbour is just to the left (east). The yellow dot shows where the First Settlers landed. This is the site of the Sydney Airport today. Bondi Beach is on the right of the map, just across from the red dot. It is important to select a well located hotel to be certain that you do not have to travel huge distances to get to the Rocks, Darling Harbour and the Sydney Opera House.
