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.
