Presently, the city's permanent population sits at about 4,600,000 people. If you're arriving by air at Kingsford Smith International Airport, The Rocks lies 6 miles to the northeast. Or, this suburb is 0.6 miles from downtown Sydney.

Get to know the area with a few close by attractions, including North Head Quarantine Station and Sydney Harbour National Park. Manly Wharf and St Patrick’s College are also recommended by locals and visitors. And later on, Circular Quay - The Rocks and Dawes Point are nearby areas you should head down to.

If you go 4 miles southeast, you'll stumble upon Bondi Beach. It's one of the country's iconic tourist attractions.

Circular Quay is worth going to, and it's near the city's heart.

Want to let your hair down and relax? Enticing stops include Treera Thai massage, The Intersection, Star Casino and Cruising Yacht Club of Australia.

Mosman Art Gallery, King Street Gallery, National Art School Gallery and Ray Hughes Gallery are perfect for those wanting to learn about the cultural scene in Sydney.

Book your pass, find your seat and get set for a live show at a local venue, including Hayden Orpheum, Open Air Cinema, Theatre Royal and Capitol Theatre.

There's no reason to neglect your swing. Head down to Royal Sydney Golf Club, Moore Park Golf Course, The Australian Golf Club and David Graham's Golf Complex for some challenging fairways.

The young ones will have loads of fun and may even learn something at State Library of New South Wales, Sydney Aquarium, Madame Tussauds Sydney and Cook + Phillip Park.

Discover a huge variety of captivating creatures and snap some selfies at Taronga Zoo and Wildlife Sydney.

If the weather's nice, pack a picnic lunch and head down to a nearby park. Recommended ones are Steyne Park, Centennial Park, Fitzroy Gardens and Green Park.

If you'd like to grab a bargain, visit Westfield Bondi Junction Shopping Centre, Paddington Markets, Supa Centa Moore Park and Martin Place. Have a stroll and purchase a few souvenirs.
