Sydney is the Australia’s oldest city. Captain Cook stopped near here at Botany Bay in 1770. The first Europeans who came to Australia put up their tents at Sydney Cove. Soon the first houses were built and in only 200 years the city grew from nothing into a home for of millions of people.
Despite the history, Sydney is the most modern place in Australia. Its buildings are the highest, its fashions are the newest and its colours are the brightest. A lot of Australia’s exiting cultural life is found in Sydney. Artists, writers, opera singers and film makers all live here. So some people call the city “the Paris of the Pacific”. But that doesn’t seem quite right. Paris has not got all that sea, sand, sun and surf. Sydneysiders, as well as many visitors to Australia, come to Bondi Beach to relax and take a rest. Some of them really relax. Others are too busy – they’re jogging, swimming or riding the great waves on their surfboards.
