It is important for one to understand where Sydney is to be able to acknowledge its growth and achievements. It is located on the world’s largest natural harbor and is the state capital of New South Wales, along with being one of the most populous cities in Australia. Sydney lies on a large coastal basin that is bordered to the east by the Pacific Ocean. Towards the west, the Blue Mountains are located, while the Woronora Plateau and Hawkesbury River are located in the south and north respectively. The city has a submerged coastline that has made it possible to set up more than 70 harbors and ocean beaches, including the famous Bondi Beach.
Cumberland Plain and Hornsby Plateau are two distinct landmarks in the area where Sydney is located. The former is a flat region lying towards the west of Port Jackson, while the latter is a sandstone plateau located towards the north of the harbor. Nepean and Hawkesbury are two of the most famous rivers that surround Sydney. Parramatta River also flows through the western suburbs and turns into a tidal estuary that flows all the way into Port Jackson.
The city is one of the most renowned tourist resorts in the world and its strengthening economy has made it an ideal place for relocation and immigration. Bondi Beach also offers Cogee Walk, which is one of the most spectacular coastlines in the world.
