Sydney, the harbour city where beaches and urban chic live side by side

On the east coast of Australia, Sydney is the nation’s most populated city. At its heart is a stunning harbour, which winds throughout, eventually breaking free into the Tasman Sea at the natural gateway between North Head and South Head. Today’s Emerald City is defined by the waves of immigration that have transformed the one-time British colony into a thrilling mulitcultural melting pot.
