Sydney is the capital of the state of New South Wales and surrounds the huge harbor area, Port Jackson, which is the largest natural harbor in the world. The atmosphere in the city is delightfully pleasant and generally reflects the Australian mentality. In the absolute center of the city you will find the Central Business District which means a good mix of business people, tourists, office buildings, a multitude of different shops, cafes and restaurants etc. Despite being a, at times, hectic big city, it is not difficult to find little oases here and there. Especially in the Sydney Botanical Gardens or on a walk along the beautiful waterfront, you can easily enjoy a delicious takeaway coffee while enjoying the surroundings and the view.
Sydney is a city that you can easily spend several days in. There are loads of attractions meaning that you will definitely not get bored. Spend your days in the city experiencing the better-known sights, such as Sydney Opera House and the Harbor Bridge, and perhaps also venture out into some of the smaller suburbs that are close to the centre, where it is more peaceful and where you get a better impression of life as a local 'Sydneysider'.
When you feel like having lunch or dinner, there is also plenty of opportunity to find a cozy place to eat and possibly also a nearby bar where you can enjoy a drink or a good glass of Australian wine while absorbing all the new impressions you have received during the day.
