Being the most populated of Australian cities, with over 4 million people living in Sydney it is also a real melting pot of cultures, something that Sydney and its people are very proud of. The most immigrants have come from the United Kingdom, but Chinese, Vietnamese and New Zealanders also have a significant influence. For things to do, you will not be at a loss, but you may well find that your only problem is actually choosing what to do; there is simply too much to pack into just the one visit. But top of most peoples list are taking a trip down to the harbour, so that you can capture the view of the Opera House and the Bridge for yourself. You should also think about coming down again of an evening, because again the views are simply stunning. There are many museums and art galleries to visit. One of these is the Australian Museum which is home to an amazing collection of anthropological and natural history exhibits. Even non museum lovers will be intrigued by the artefacts and it is a fascinating day out for the whole family.
