As a proud Australian the first destination I am going to cover is Sydney. It is arguably australia's most exciting city, it's a city with rich cultural diversity and is commonly recognized for its distinctive arts scene and status as one of the worlds culinary capitals. There are many events held yearly such as the Mardi gras, oKtoberfest, carols in the domain and the Chinese new year. The main hot spots are the opera house and harbor bridge but there are plenty more hidden jewels such as the little italy of leichhardt and Chinatown, paddington, and the eccentric, gay friendly darling hurst and newtown. The rich history of Sydney can be seen in the hundreds of preserved buildings, monuments and ancient park lands. All in all it is a very inspirational city that welcomes people from all walks of life.
