Host City

The visual excitement and variety of the harbour city is matched by the diversity and energy of its four million people. High-rise buildings of the central business districts look across the water at green headlands of national parks and comfortable garden suburbs. To the west, the World Heritage Blue Mountains stand as a spectacular barrier to the inland, while the ever-changing moods of the Pacific Ocean dominate the beaches, which stretch for miles north and south from the forbidding cliffs of Sydney Heads. Sydney’s cultural scene is vibrant. The Opera House with its graceful sails is home to the Sydney Symphony Orchestra and Australian Chamber Orchestra, as well as the Australian Ballet and the Sydney Theatre Company. There are many venues specialising in music from the classics to techno pop, dance, theatre and film.

Dining out is a favourite relaxation in Sydney – the abundance of ingredients and the influences of many cultures make for great choices in style and cost, but half the fun is to “see and be seen” as you sample the new “Oz cuisine” and taste some of the local wines.
