"Recommended. This is a wonderful visual feast of images of the harbor city of Sydney with its 152-mile shoreline. Viewers are presented with many little slices of life that give this city its beauty. From scenes of surfers, ferry boat commuters, and monorail riders you move peripatetically around the city touring different neighborhoods, people, and architecture including a glimpse of the famous Sydney Opera House. Hang onto your chair; the windy climb to the top of the Sydney Harbor Bridge, the world's largest steel arch bridge, is captured in this program. The sound quality and visual imagery are excellent. The director portrays the city, including Chinatown and Aboriginal neighborhoods, capturing the beauty and diversity of this great city, and is an excellent overview." -EMRO Review
Sydney, the capital of New South Wales, is a fascinating, cosmopolitan city filled with life and excitement. Nestled between the beaches and waters of Port Jackson and Botany Bay, between the Pacific Ocean and the wooded slopes of the Blue Mountains, Sydney is surrounded by water, with beaches dominating the hearts and minds of all its citizens. Home to one of the most beautiful harbors in the world, its most famous landmarks are the architecturally stunning Sydney Opera House and the Iron Bridge, which spans the estuary of the Parramatta River. Here we discover its extraordinary symbiosis with the sea: the beaches and the port, where sailboards, container ships, yachts, and ferries cross paths every day, are key threads in Sydney's cultural fabric. Most important of all, the people of Sydney share an attitude about living life to its fullest, making it a popular place to live and to visit.
