ProBeautiful, scenic, always something going on

ConsRather busy!

Last year I spent a year in Australia which included me living in Sydney for around 7 months on two occasions. I therefore am writing this review on the city from both a visitor and living perceptive. Sydney was first settled in 1788 although it is thought to have been inhabited by the indigenous...

“The beautiful harbour city”

published 24/01/2009

ProLots to see and do

ConsCan be expensive, Very hot in summer

I've lived in Sydney since 2005 and I have to say it's the most wonderful city. There really is something for everyone here. First, there's the obvious Opera House and Harbour Bridge. The Opera House is the most amazing building when you see if for real. I really didn't think that much of it...

From September to December 2005 I was seconded to a suburb of Sydney, Australia which, as secondments go, was a pretty juicy one for a 23 year old to land. As readers of my other pieces will attest to I got out and about in Australia during my time there, but since Sydney was the place I was...

“Sydney Harbour Bay!”

published 21/01/2007

Pro Awesome place/great photo opportunities!

Cons I was jet lagged when we saw it!

Last Summer I was lucky enough to go on a world rugby tour to Australia and New Zealand, it was an amazing trip and I am going to review each section of the trip, to let you know how fantastic it was! I will try not to do it in a blog style and hopefully tell you what the places were actually...

“City of contrasts”

published 23/01/2007

ProThis city knows how to enjoy itself

Cons one or two

This is a city that if you want fun you can have it , but there is also a few things you need to be careful about. First of all lets start at the beginning the airport. The airport is fairly spacious and easy to get around and well signed posted and plenty of disabled friendly places. There is a...

“Magnificent Harbour”

published 24/07/2000

ProWoderful place to visit

Consnone

What a beautiful place - as a strict county bloke I've never liked cities but the one exception has to be Sydney. The huge harbour is home to ships and sails of all shapes and sizes, with Ferries plying their way across the harbour. Centrepoint tower has to be the best place to start an...

“Boycott Bondi Beach”

published 28/03/2001

ProSee text

ConsSee text

Sydney is a wonderful city - the shopping, the nightlife, the sport, the culture, the beaches - at least most of the beaches, except the most famous of them all - Bondi Beach - which I can't stand. I visited there a few years ago and there were not many redeeming features about the place that I...

ProUnique thrill

ConsA kill or cure for vertigo

Most people could probably have a fair stab at drawing the Sydney Harbour Bridge from memory – it’s one of the world’s classic structures along with other icons like Tower Bridge, the Eiffel Tower and so on. Carrying roadways, railways, cycle-ways and pedestrian footpaths across...

Conscan get rather blustery

As far as Australian landscapes go, the Sydney Harbour goes down as being one of the most iconic and familiar, close behind Uluru and of course, the Sydney Opera House, which goes hand in hand with the harbour. The Harbour is a natural wonder and is undeniably the jewel in the crown of Sydney...

“Sydney NSW”

published 04/08/2000

ProGreat atmosphere, food and freindly people

ConsDistance to travel to get there

Sydney is a great city to visit, with lots to see and do that will interest all the family. Children will love the ferries that operate in Sydney harbour that make 'getting there' part of the fun of a good day out. The best views of the famous Sydney Harbour Bridge can be seen from the ferry from...

Down under, a fascinating land which is well known especially since the olympic games were in Sydney in the year 2000. While I was in Sydney the olympic games were already finished but you still were able to feel the special flair of the city. Sydney has a lot of things who are worth it to visit...

Sydney – somewhere I had wanted to visit from being a small child. I have no idea where the draw to this city came from but fixate me it did! Odd then that it took two trips to Australia to actually ‘get there’, but at the beginning of this year I finally managed...
