Synopses & Reviews
Provides a brief outline of Sydney, its geographical position and its history.
This book features not only the well-known sights, but also some lesser known, but very photographic areas. The people and the "Sydney lifestyle" are captured, thus setting this volume apart from the run-of-the-mill Sydney tourist books. Beginning with a lively, brief outline of Sydney, its history and geographical position, the book moves on to cover the inner city and surrounding neighborhoods, along with the city's business center. It also celebrates the different faces of Australia -- the cosmopolitan, multicultural suburbs, the harbor and beaches, Sydney's distinct "ocean lifestyle", Sydney's nightlife, restaurants, and festivals. Also included are sights that are within a couple hour's drive, national parks and adventure sports.
