Sydney is a significant global and domestic tourist destination is often referred to as one of the most beautiful and vibrant cities in the world. Sydney recently increased its global profile of host location for the 2000 Summer Olympics.

Sydney is one of the world's most multicultural cities, as reflected by its role as an important destination for immigrants arriving in Australia. Sydney is Australia's most expensive city to live in and going on 21 place the most expensive cities in the world.

Many kinds of parties and festivals taking place in Sydney. 1. January is celebrated summer with The Festival of Sydney. Then it takes many concerts, there are a lot of music in the streets, and there is racing on the lake. When people sit outside with picnic baskets usually delicious summer.

But the highlight is Australia Day, which is 26 January. The date represents when the first ship with prisoners came to Sydney. This day are recorded each year plays describing this event. All the cast of the play is dressed in appropriate costumes from that era.
