Telephone Area Code: 02
Sydney is Australia's most populous city and the oldest settlement in Australia.
Lonely Planet says the following about Sydney:
"Sydney wasn't a planned city and its layout is further complicated by its hills and the numerous inlets of the harbour, the focal point of the city. The centre of Sydney is on the south shore of the harbour, about 7km (4mi) inland from the harbour heads. Skyscrapers in the Central Business District (CBD) vie for dominance and harbour views, but the city's relentlessness is softened by shady Hyde Park and The Domain parkland to the east, Darling Harbour to the west and the main harbour to the north. The Sydney Harbour Bridge and the harbour tunnel link the city centre with the satellite CBD of North Sydney and the suburbs of the North Shore. The city's airport, Kingsford Smith (otherwise known as Mascot), is about 9km (6mi) south of the city centre. Central station, Sydney's main train station, is in the south of the city centre, and the main bus terminal is just outside it."

"Kings Cross is the city's budget accommodation centre and has a well-developed travellers grapevine."

"The international hotels are concentrated in the city and the Rocks. There are heaps of good restaurants in Darlinghurst, Kings Cross, Paddington and Glebe, and a few around Circular Quay. For cafes, try Oxford and Victoria Sts in Darlinghurst, Stanley St in East Sydney, King St in Newtown or Norton St in Leichhardt."
The Lounge is a great cafe / tapas bar in Milsons Point.
