One of the world's great maritime cities, Sydney has much to engage both the traveller and the resident wishing to enjoy the evident physical beauty of its environs and explore the culturally vibrant city it has become.
From at least 20,000 years of undisturbed Aboriginal habitation to the decades of immense change leading to the new millennium, Sydney's history is sweeping in scope. Drawing on a wide range of original and other sources, including interviews, this meticulous account will enable the reader to wander and explore the city and suburbs with greater appreciation. Generously illustrated with photographs, etchings, paintings, drawings and watercolours, many of which are historically significant, this book is essential reading for Sydneysiders and a welcome companion for those passing through.
