With its iconic imagery that include the Opera House and the Sydney Harbour Bridge, Sydney is the capital city of New South Wales. The Sydney City, also known as the Central Business District, falls roughly within an area about 1 km wide by 3 km long.

Sydney itself is a sprawling metropolis with seaside suburbs stretching both north and south for a length of about 70 km. It then extends west in a broad sweep about 60 km to the Blue Mountains, through historic Parramatta, a city in its own right about 20 km west of the city centre.

Today Sydney’s metropolitan area covers some 5,000 square kilometres offering the visitor a vast region to explore and enjoy.

Sydney Opera House & CitySydney is cut in half by Sydney Harbour (Port Jackson) and the Parramatta River which flows into it from Parramatta. Sydney ends at Broken Bay (Palm Beach) which leads into Pittwater and the Ku-ring-gai Chase National Park, a tract of bushland bisected by Cowan Creek and parts of the Hawkesbury River. Along with Pittwater, these waterways are popular with tourist and residence alike.

Port Hacking, a large sea inlet, forms the southern border of the city and marks the start of the National Park, a large tract of national bushland and the rugged coastal scenery of Audley, Garie and Wattamolla. North of Port Hacking lies Botany Bay into which flows the Georges River. Sydney airport is on the north-western shore of Botany Bay, with runways extending into it on reclaimed land, 9 km from the city centre.

Sydney offers much to see, from it's more than 30 beaches stretching north and south, spectacular harbour and foreshores, historic buildings and locales, picturesque towns and villages, entertainment and tourist attractions, museums, parks and gardens, the list goes on.
