I am NOT at all satisfied with my experiances at Sydney yet - I have been here on short trips and I know for a fact that I will have to make a much longer trip *out of work* to truly get a feel of what a vibrant city Sydney is.

NSW is Australia’s most populous state with over 7 million residents calling it home. As mentioned, it’s capital is Sydney.
NSW’s boasts to mild winters and warm summers. Rain falls mostly in winter (June, July, and August) This mild climate stretches north and south from Sydney with beaches, nature reserves, and amazing places to visit spread up and down the coast.
Its most obvious attractions include the Opera House, the Harbour Bridge and the Rocks area which are all within walking distance to each other.
