Why Sydney?

Sydney, otherwise known as the Harbour City, is the largest city in Australia by population and is home to some of the most beautiful beaches and coastline in the world. It offers a diverse range of industry/employment opportunities, a very manageable climate and an exceptional lifestyle with so many outdoor attractions.

History

The first people to inhabit the Sydney Region were indigenous Australians, otherwise known as Aboriginals. They migrated from Northern Australia and prior to that from Southeast Asia. Lieutenant James Cook landed in Botany Bay on the 29th April 1770.

Captain Philip led the First Fleet of 11 ships and about 850 convicts into Botany Bay on 18 January 1788, though apparently he deemed the location as being unsuitable due to a lack of fresh water. He then travelled north and arrived at Port Jackson (otherwise known as Sydney Harbour) on 26 January 1788. Phillip described Sydney Cove as being “without exception the finest harbour in the world”.

Climate

Sydney’s climate is categorised as subtropical, where the city experiences warm summers, cool winters and quite uniform rainfalls throughout all months of the year. The climate is conducive to an outdoor lifestyle as the weather doesn’t often get too hot or cold in the summer and winter months.

Regions

There are 8 distinct areas that Sydney is generally broken down into;
 

Eastern suburbs Northern Beaches
Inner West Hills district
Southern Sydney Parramatta district
Northern Suburbs Western suburbs

Major Events

Sydney hosts a large number of sporting, cultural and historical events throughout the year. A number of these are focused around the Harbour and CBD areas, of which some area listed below;

Sydney to Hobart Yacht Race – the race starts on Sydney Harbour on Boxing Day every year

New Year’s Eve Fireworks – are regarded as one of the best in the world due to the spectacular Sydney Harbour Bridge fireworks display.

Sydney Gay & Lesbian Mardi Gras – parade is celebrated around March each year

Australia Day – is celebrated on Sydney Harbour and around the city

Vivid – is the spectacular light show that is on around the harbour and city from May to June each year

Local Economy & Major Employment Industries

With Sydney has a very diverse range of industry, it is often referred to as a Financial Services City, particularly the CBD. The Financial Services industry reportedly accounts for between 18-20% of the gross product. A number of large national and multinational corporations have their headquarters based in Sydney. There is no doubt that this contributes to Sydney being regarded as being in the top 20 global cities that are highly integrated into the global economy. The local economy is very healthy with low unemployment rates and great employment opportunities in a raft of different industries.

Estimated Population

Sydney’s population is estimated to be around 5.5Million and growing by nearly 100,000 new residents per year.
