A relatively young city, Sydney has grown to become one of the world’s most multicultural cities—an international fusion of culture, languages, and ideas with more than 4.6 million residents. Commute to work via train, bus, or ferry. Walking works, too—after all, Sydney averages over 340 sunny days each year. In your free time, hang out at the beach, visit the famous Sydney Opera House, get adventurous and walk the Sydney Harbour Bridge, or explore one of the city's many markets.
