Sydney
closeSydney, Australia's oldest city, was founded in 1788 by Arthur Phillip. He lead a fleet of 11 ships with British convicts sent to this remote destination to relieve the overcrowded British jails.
Few of those aboard this 'First Fleet' could have imagined their small settlement would grow into a large cosmopolitan metropolis.
Today Sydney is one of Asia-Pacific's most popular tourist destinations thanks to its sunny weather, fine beaches and great landmarks like the Opera House.
