Sydney “The Gateway To Australia”
Welcome to Sydney, one of the most spectacular and exciting cities in the
world! Sydney doesn‟t exactly hide its charms. „If you‟ve got it, flaunt it‟
could well be the harbour city‟s motto.

Endowed with a sparkling harbour, dazzling beaches and a sunny,
Mediterranean climate, its setting alone has guaranteed Sydney
a place among the most glamorous cities on the planet.
Grafted onto those natural splendours is an impressive array
of worldly treasures, including a rich blend of cultures, a relaxed,
unbuttoned lifestyle and an appetite for life that makes this the
most exhilarating city in the South Pacific.


Climate
Sydney enjoys about 300 sunny days a year, making it an ideal
year-round destination. Australia‟s seasons are opposite to those
in the northern hemisphere, with summer officially starting in
December and winter in June.
Sydney enjoys a temperate climate; the warmest months are
December to February (Summer), with an average maximum temperature
of 28c and minimum of 17c. The average maximum temperature from June
to August (winter) is 15c with the minimum being 9c. If you head up to
Queensland you can expect it to be hotter with the average maximum
temperature still 25c and over 30c in summer.
Getting around
Sydney‟s transport system comprises a rail network, light rail,
monorail, ferries and buses. There are plenty of taxis, for transport
information, visit www.131500.com.au
Abyss is less than a 10 minute bus trip from the nearest train station
(Kogarah) which is only a 20 minute train ride into central Sydney.

Cost of Living
To give you a rough idea of how much it is going to cost to live in Sydney.
We have put together a list of prices. Accomodation – For a good hostel
you‟d be looking to pay around $15 (£8.50) or up to $35 (£20) for a really
flashy one!
If you do the internship with Abyss Scuba diving we can arrange
accommodation in Cronulla at a nice house for $180 - $220 which includes
breakfast and dinner and FREE wifi.

Food and Drink
Australia isn‟t very expensive to eat and drink and if careful you can manage
on around $30pw. A loaf of bread is about $2.50, a „schooner‟ of beer about
$3, a case of beer from a bottle shop around $35, a bottle of milk $1.50, 6
pack soft drink $5, a bag of pasta $0.70, large bag of chips (crisps) $3. Tap
water is safe to drink but you will want to have a bottle of water handy when
you are out and about as you will dehydrate quickly.

Keeping in Touch
Whilst you are away you are going to want to keep in touch with friends and
family back home, even if its just to e-mail pictures to make them all very
envious!!
Mobile Phones – You can use your own phone (make sure you unblock it
before you leave home) and buy a SIM card to keep costs cheaper. There are
a few providers Telstra, Vodafone, Optus, Virgin and 3, all offer pre-pay SIM
cards and great deals on credit top-ups.
Email/Facebook – there are lots of internet cafes and wireless access points,
they normally cost about $3 for an hour and most offer a card system so you
do not have to use it all up in one go.



                                                                              6
Sydney at a glance
Sydney doesn‟t exactly hide its charms. „If you‟ve got it, fl aunt it‟ could well
be the harbour city‟s motto.
Endowed with a sparkling harbour, dazzling beaches and a sunny,
Mediterranean climate, its
setting alone has guaranteed Sydney a place among the most glamorous
cities on the planet. Grafted onto those natural splendours is an impressive
array of worldly treasures, including a rich blend of cultures, a relaxed,
unbuttoned lifestyle and an appetite for life that makes this the most
exhilarating city in the South Pacific.

Harbour and city
Sydney Harbour splits the city into north and south. Its 240 km (150 miles)
of shoreline includes national parks, islands and some great beaches.
There are plenty of ways to explore the harbour – on ferries, yachts, cruise
vessels, high-speed jet boats or sea kayaks. Visitors can dine by the harbour,
go for a walk along its foreshores or even fl y above it in a seaplane.

The Rocks and Circular Quay
In 1788, 11 convict ships of the British First Fleet dropped anchor on this
small peninsula beneath the Harbour Bridge, beginning the history of modern
Australia. This compact precinct of sandstone warehouses
and Victorian merchants‟ houses has been transformed into a cosmopolitan
gateway to the city, complete with art galleries, boutiques,
Australia‟s biggest, oldest and most cosmopolitan and exciting city is
surrounded by national parks and beaches. cafés, a weekend market, some
wonderful restaurants, great shopping and some of the best views on earth.
Darling Harbour
This horseshoe-shaped bay on the western side of the city is where
Sydneysiders come to play. Attractions in the area include the Powerhouse
Museum, the Sydney Aquarium, Sydney Wildlife World, Star City Casino, the
Chinese Gardens, the Australian National Maritime Museum and the
waterside restaurant complexes at Cockle Bay Wharf and King Street Wharf –
all arranged around a sparkling waterside park.
City centre The city of Sydney stretches from the harbour and the Royal
Botanic Gardens in the north to Chinatown and Central Station in the south.
Within this compact boundary there is plenty to keep any visitor busy and
entertained – great shopping, good cafés and restaurants, bars,
gardens and parks. There are also many fine heritage buildings, museums,
galleries and tourist attractions.

Inner city
Sydney‟s inner city areas are lively precincts, full of activity and offering
much to enjoy.
Paddington Oxford Street, Paddington‟s high street, is Sydney‟s fashion
artery, a 1-km boulevard of boutiques, cafés and homeware shops,
surrounded by pretty Victorian terrace houses. Paddington, about 2 km (1.5
miles) from the city, is at its best on Saturday morning, when Paddington
Markets attracts the crowds to the upper end of Oxford Street. Continue
along Oxford Street to Centennial Park, the sprawling green playground of
the eastern suburbs – 220 hectares of palm-lined
avenues, fig-tree groves and paperbark-fringed lakes with a chic café and
cycling and horseriding tracks.
Kings Cross
Sydney‟s premier nightclub district is not for the fainthearted. More sedate by
day and a riot of neon and noise by night, it‟s a 15-minute walk east of the
city.
Newtown
Located 3 km (2 miles) south-west of the city, Newtown is a bustling suburb
crowded with cafés, restaurants and boutiques. It‟s popular with students,
alternative lifestylers and Sydney‟s hip community.

fishing, glorious hiking, scope for whale-watching or just lazing on unspoilt
beaches. Cronulla itself has Sydney‟s longest beach and a sparkling outdoor

the peaceful village of Bundeena.

and chill with friends, Northies is a great place to meet people and does
some AWESOME cocktails!
