Sydney Travel Guide

Greater Sydney

The Greater Sydney area has numerous attractions that can be easily reached by public transport. These include historic townships, the Sydney 2000 Olympics site, national parks where you can experience the Australian bush, and wildlife and theme parks that appeal to children.

Other points of interest are the north-side beaches, particularly Manly, and the historic city of Parramatta, founded in 1788
