City SnapshotSydney is Australia’s most famous city and it’s easy to see why! Set on the iconic Sydney Harbour and surrounded by some of the country’s best beaches, it is a visual feast, full of activities, places to see and great food and drink. Sydney is known as the ‘city of villages’, with no two suburbs the same. You can be sipping on a delicious flat white at a cafe in Sydney’s Inner West and, just 20 minutes later, you could be breathing in the fresh, salty air at one of the many beaches scattered along the iconic coastline. Just as varied as the suburbs are the people who occupy them; the city is a cultural melting pot complete with diverse communities, great food and events.
