When measured against all the usual yardsticks – agreeable climate, all-natural beauty, attractions for the seeing, activities for the doing – Sydney can only rank as one of the world’s best cities.
Iconic architecture. Nightlife that astounds. Beaut parks, gorgeous gardens. First rate galleries, world-class museums and loads of live music. Great surf. Year-round good weather. Excellent eateries and four codes of football. Bronte Beach’s bogey hole. Ferry rides across the harbor. Chinatown. Bondi and Coogee on the foreshore, Blue Mountains up back. Gay and Lesbian Mardi Gras. The rum-riddled history of The Rocks. Yep, Sydney rocks.
