Sydney and Australia History
Sydney Aboriginal History
Sydney’s Aboriginal history dates back more than 22,000 years, perhaps even up to 50,000 years with over 5,500 known Sydney rock art sites. Early colonial explorers, like Watkin Tench, noted that aboriginal paintings and engravings were everywhere to be found.
Greater Sydney Surrounds
The region of Greater Sydney (beyond the inner city limits) consists of its many suburbs, stretching from as far north as where the Hawkesbury / Nepean River reaches the ocean, to as far west as Penrith at the foot of the Blue Mountains and as far south as the Campbelltown region. The suburbs east of the city consists of favourite visitor places like Bondi Beach, Coogee, Maroubra and the Cronulla Beaches.
Greater Sydney and its surrounds has historical attractions and just about every visitor activity you can imagine:

The inner city of course, is important as to where modern Australia began as a nation. Much of its early history began here, first as a penal colony, but quickly growing with free settlers from all over the world.
Settlements to other parts of NSW and then Australia were organised here, first to Tasmania, Norfolk Island and Victoria and then to other far flung parts such as Western Australia. Farming and wool were important early industries that helped develop this country, later, successive Gold Rushes helped boost the nation’s coffers considerably.
When the world began its path to industrialisation, the country kept pace, with Australian coal and iron feeding the furnaces of the British Empire, Europe and Asia. As the use of steel gathered pace around the world, Australia began to produce vast quantities of that as well, to export to the rest of the world.
Combined with our golden beaches, timeless history, South Pacific climate, beautiful national parks and Sydney Harbour, this cosmopolitan city welcomes millions of international visitors every year.
