Sydney: The harbour city / Gadigal Land
Over the past 20,000 years, the Sydney area has had at least 1,000 generations of continuous occupation by Aboriginal people known as the Eora Nation.
Landing in 1788, Captain Arthur Phillip (commander of the First Fleet of 11 ships containing 1400 people), named the bay Sydney Cove in honour of Lord Sydney, the British Secretary of State for the Home Affairs. Sydney quickly grew as capital of the colony and is now home to over 5 million people from all backgrounds.
Sydney, built around its spectacular harbour and beaches and with an abundance of parks and greenery, is visually unmatched by any city and has something for everyone.
