In honor of Lord Sydney, who was the minister of the colonies of Her Majesty, the city was named, which became the site of the first colonial settlement of Europeans on the newly discovered far continent. Since then, modern skyscrapers and openwork bridges have grown here, the Olympic Games have been held on the shores of the city near the bay, and the coming of the New Year is noisily celebrated every December. Tours to Sydney, despite the frankly expensive and long tiresome flight, do not become less popular with travelers from all over the world.
History with geography
The land, called New South Wales, was discovered by Captain Cook in 1770 on the way from New Zealand. With the beginning of the war of independence, the United States stopped accepting British criminals to settle as before. And therefore Her Majesty’s correctional system began to look for other ways to solve the problem. So the city arose in Sydney Bay, the first inhabitants of which were the exiled English convicts.
The city lies in a valley on the Pacific coast. It is bordered by the Blue Mountains and the Royal National Park. Sydney Bay with the Gulf is the most significant natural formation of its kind in the world.
Summer in Sydney begins in December, and the air temperature in July-August can reach +30 degrees. In winter, that is, in June, thermometers record +15 and so.
Precipitations to tour participants in Sydney are not terrible most of the year, and heavy rains are characteristic only for March-June. However, a record number of them can cause flooding, accompanied by strong storms and heavy wind.
