Host City

Sydney, the capital of New South Wales, is built around one of the largest, most beautiful harbours in the world with miles of golden beaches stretching north and south of the city on the shore of the Pacific Ocean.

Sydney is known for its harbour lifestyle and fantastic beaches, which contribute to a relaxed environment that pervades the city and its visitors. The City’s facilities, design and atmosphere, along with the vitality and graciousness of its residents makes it renowned for its success in hosting high profile international events (such as the 2000 Olympic Games and the 2003 Rugby World Cup).

The beaches and harbour play a major role in the outdoor leisure and sporting lives of Sydneysiders, with yachting, surfing, swimming, boating, fishing and waterskiing all being very popular.

The city’s dining options are numerous, ranging from a relaxed picnic in the Botanical Gardens or on Bondi Beach to an exclusive seafood lunch at Circular Quay or on a sunset harbour cruise. Sydney’s restaurant scene also encapsulates the cultural diversity as the cuisine takes inspiration from Asia, Europe and the Middle East, where it is combined with the freshest Australian ingredients to create a truly unique taste sensation suitable for all palettes.

After indulging in divine cuisine, visitors will continue to enjoy their experience with the abundant shopping opportunities, which include a mixture of shopping complexes, boutique stores and colourful sea and harbour side markets.

One of Sydney’s most famous landmarks is the spectacular Opera House, where visitors can indulge in opera, ballet, dance and film. Another famous landmark is the Harbour Bridge from which visitors can climb and enjoy breath taking views.

With its uniquely stunning attractions, terrific climate and friendly people, no other city can offer Sydney’s vibrancy!
