Sydney, a thoroughly cosmopolitan city in one of the world's most beautiful natural settings, is a place that I usually like, and occasionally love. While certain elements of Sydney's business-financial and hipster culture can be a tad pretentious, and the population often a far cry from "Australian-friendly", the wonder of Sydney's beaches, stunning waterfront, charming neighborhoods, and tasty (if expensive) restaurants and pubs make it a thoroughly lovely city to visit. See Circular Quay, Bondi, and the Opera House, but don't neglect hip spots like Newtown, Glebe, and the stunning walk from Bondi to Coogee, with a prospective stop for snorkeling in Clovelley's sheltered pool.

Although it is not the capital Sydney is Australia's most famous city. If you are heading to Oz you will most likely be at least passing though here. It's a beautiful city to serve as the gateway to welcome you to the continent.

What a fun international city. You feel so safe walking around this amazing city. The iconic structures can't be missed. Also are the various harbor stops for amazingly fresh seafood with great views.

To me, Sydney is like San Diego and London had a baby. It's cool, hip, and Bohemian at the same time that it's cosmopolitan, bustling, and multicultural. I fell in love with Sydney the day I arrived, and still pine for its sun-drenched streets, sparkling harbors, and endless array of things to do. Yes, it's expensive (the #2 most expensive city in the world), but with a little research and smarts, you can easily get by on a modest budget.

I loved Sydney. Beautiful city. Was there a while ago between Dec 2008 and Jan 2009. City's got a great vibe. The transport system is pretty nice as well. Loved walking around downtown and by the bay. Harbourbridge is great. Watched Fireworks from the Sydney Opera House and dinner. Beautiful place. Would definitely want to visit again.

Gorgeous gorgeous Sydney. I don't know how anyone gets work done here. An outdoor lovers urban fantasy that also had great restaurants, plenty of cafes, and wonderful boutiques. Far from almost everywhere but one of the most pleasant cities on the planet.
