Sydney is the largest and most populous city in Australia and the state capital of New South Wales. Sydney is located on Australia's south-east coast of the Tasman Sea. Inhabitants of Sydney are called Sydneysiders, comprising a cosmopolitan and international population of people from numerous places around the world.

The site of the first British colony in Australia, Sydney was established in 1788 at Sydney Cove by Arthur Phillip, commodore of the First Fleet as a penal colony. The city is built on hills surrounding Port Jackson which is commonly known as Sydney Harbour, where the iconic Sydney Opera House and the Harbour Bridge feature prominently.

Sydney ranks among the top 10 most livable cities in the world according to Mercer Human Resource Consulting and The Economist.

Sydney has hosted major international sporting events, including the 1938 British Empire Games, the 2000 Summer Olympics, and the final match of the 2003 Rugby World Cup.

Australia Sydney2 Come walk with me!

  1. 1. SYDNEY http://www.authorstream.com/Presentation/sandamichaela-1181297-come-walk-with-me/
  2. 2. Inhabitants of New South Wales are referred to as New South Welsh or New South Welshmen. New South Wales's largest city and capital is Sydney.
  3. 3. Sydney
  4. 4. Circular Quay is a CityRail station City Circle line. The station is elevated with the elevated Cahill Expressway roadway directly above it
  5. 6. As iconic as the Opera House in its time (1874), 1 Martin Place is a beautifully colonnaded Victorian palazzo that houses Sydney’s General Post Office. Beyond the stamps and envelopes, it’s been gutted, stabbed with office towers and transformed into the Westin Sydney hotel, swanky shops, restaurants and bars, including Crystal Bar and Senate Bar
  6. 8. Inspired by Italian Renaissance palaces, architect James Barnet caused a minor fracas by basing the faces carved on the sandstone facade on local identities. Under a staircase in the basement there is a small historical display and a pipe housing the dribbling remnants of the Tank Stream.
  7. 9. The Tank Stream is a fresh water course which empties into Sydney Cove in New South Wales. Today it is little more than a storm water drain, but originally it was the fresh water supply for the fledgling colony of New South Wales in the late 18th century
  8. 11. Studded with imposing edifices, long, lean Martin Place was closed to traffic in 1971 but has only ever been partially successful as a pedestrian mall.
  9. 12. Once the corporate crowds go home, the ramps, stairs and fountains are converged upon by skateboarders and film crews.
  10. 13. Built in 1916, the 12-storey Commonwealth Bank building was Australia’s first steel-framed ‘skyscraper’. Its interiors are largely intact and clock-watching tellers still muse over the inscription on the wall: ‘The Noiseless Foot Of Time Steals Swiftly By’.
  11. 20. Another branch has taken over the old State Savings Bank building: it’s a beau example of interwar beaux-arts architecture, featuring green-marble Doric columns and an enclosed brass-and-marble teller area. Abutting Martin Place on George Street, the former Commercial Banking Corporation of Sydney is now a Virgin Megastore – an impressive marbled edifice worth a detour if you’re passing by.
  12. 26. The Spiral Fountain at Darling Harbour, Sydney.
  13. 27. Born in Sydney, 1949, Terrance Plowright has designed and built many water features, in Sydney and his "Dancing Brolga Fountain" at Cockle Bay is famous world wide and features as one of Sydney’s major icons for Singapore Airlines
  14. 28. The Sydney Tower, the city's tallest structure, is one of Sydney's most prominent landmarks. The 309 meter high tower was built in 1981 as a communications tower and tourist facility. Each year, more than a million visitors enjoy the spectacular views over Sydney. Images internet Image ioan mara
  15. 29. There are three main sections of the tower open to public access. One is the observation deck at 250 metres above ground level with a fully-enclosed viewing platform featuring 360 degree views of the city and surrounds. The Sydney Tower Skywalk platform at 268 metres above ground level has an open-air viewing platform only accessible as part of planned and booked tours. There are also revolving restaurants, one à la carte and one buffet. The buffet restaurant was recently (2006) renovated. It seats 220 people, and serves 185,000 customers annually, of which 50,000 are international visitors, mostly from Asia Image internet
  16. 31. The tower has a maximum capacity of 960 people. Travel from the ground to the tower is via three high speed double-deck elevators that reach the observation deck in approximately 40 seconds if on maximum speed, this depends on wind conditions at the time.
