Sydney, New South Wales (Minimum three days)

Founded in 1788, Sydney is New South Wales’ capital and most populous city in the country. Located on the southeast shore coast, this city has been inhabited by indigenous Australians for 30,000 years before it was established as a penal colony by the first British settlers led by Captain Arthur Phillip. Convict transportation ended in mid 19th century and it has transformed itself into a major international economic and cultural centre.

Sydney has a population of 5 million people and is one of the most multicultural cities in the world, where more than 250 different languages are spoken. It is considered one of the most expensive cities in the world and one of the most livable in terms of quality of living. The city’s advanced market economy is supported by its strength in manufacturing, finance and tourism.
