Living in Sydney
Sydney was established in the 1780s – the first European settlement in Australia. Since then, the city has expanded eastward to the coast and westward to the Blue Mountains. It now stretches 55 kilometers from east to west, and 60 kilometers from north to south.
Sydney is one of the world's most highly rated cities in terms of quality of life. It was ranked number 10 by the international consulting firm, Mercer, in 2010. It was ranked first in the Asia Pacific by the IMD World Competitiveness Yearbook 2007. It was voted 'world's best city' by readers of Travel & Leisure and Conde Nast Traveler magazines.
