Host City

Sydney, Australia Flag_of_Australia_(converted).svg

Sydney, Australia is renowned for its stunning harbour setting, temperature climate and rich arts and dining scenes. Accessible transport, business opportunities and festivals, sporting and cultural events are an unsurpassed addition to your experience in this global city.

Many national parks, protected areas and beaches surround the city including the Blue Mountains, which are a short journey to the West.

Perhaps the most famous of Sydney’s landmarks is the spectacular Sydney Opera House with its graceful ‘sails’. The Opera House has become Sydney’s cultural centre, offering ballet, drama and film. The historic ‘Rocks’ area, site of the original convict settlement, is nearby, and this part of the harbour foreshore is a hub of activity for both local residents and visitors.

Sydney is a vigorous, cosmopolitan city, a major industrial, business and commercial centre and is endlessly fascinating in its variety and its beauty.
