Sydney’s origins trace back to an area inhabited by Indigenous Australians for over 30,000 years, first visited by Europeans in the 1770’s and settled as a penal colony in 1788. Today, Sydney is a cosmopolitan, open-minded, multicultural city with more than five million residents. Nearly half of “Sydney-siders” speak a language other than English at home with 36% born overseas. Sydney is consistently ranked as one of the best cities to live globally, and it is renowned for its social inclusion, diversity, and tolerance.
