Where in the World: Sydney
Sydney, Australia’s oldest and largest settlement, boasts one of the most instantly recognizable harbours on Earth, while its architectural icons are the envy of cities the world over.
A picturesque playground for surfers and sailors, Sydney Harbour is over 11 miles long, with its seabed measuring depths up to 45m, making it both the deepest and largest natural harbor in the world. This splendorous waterway is home to more than 580 species of fish, several islands, as well as hundreds of kilometers of culture-rich shoreline.
Along with that, there are more than 100 beaches spread throughout Sydney, giving both locals and visitors alike a number of chances to take in postcard-worthy views of the Pacific Ocean coastline, as well as the city’s bays, rivers and more.
Venture just outside the city center and you will discover the Sydney Fish Market, the largest fish market in the southern hemisphere, which draws in over 3 million visitors a year; in a typical year, over 13,000 tons of seafood (and more than 500 different species) is sold in the market.
