Sydney is not only one of the most physically beautiful cities in the world, it's also one of the most accessible. The mass of restaurants, cafes and bars are both innovative and reasonably priced, nightclubs are pumping and the delicious thriving gay scene with its annual Mardi Gras festival acts as a tantalising tourist magnet. Add to this blue skies, clean beaches, wicked surf and warm wine valleys and you have a hedonist's dream.
This fully revised third edition traces the history of Sydney's rocky rise to glory. A new chapter investigates the city's long and troubled battle towards reconciliation between the European settlers and the Aboriginal people and asks why the Government refuses to say sorry.
