Living in Sydney
Sydney is the capital city of the state of New South Wales and is located on the south-east coast of Australia. It is a vibrant city full of activity and spirit. It is truly a multicultural city, with a population of four million people, originating from over 180 countries and speaking over 140 languages.
Situated on one of the worlds' most beautiful natural harbours, Sydney provides an uniquely outdoor lifestyle, offering an array of alfresco dining venues, parks and an exhaustive choice of outdoor leisure activities. 'Sydneysiders' even have access to more than 70 beaches spread along the city's coastline.
Sydney's natural beauty is enhanced by a diversity of cultures involved in a variety of arts and entertainment activities and enjoying lively shopping and dining precincts, including its very own Chinatown. Shopping in Sydney can be a pleasurable experience and the choice is immense. Budget minded students can shop at the weekend markets for fruit, vegetables, clothing and an assortment of other goods.
