Sydney: Inner Sydney – Part 1

17 December 2017 – 3 January 2018

Sydney is considered by many one of the world’s top cities, frequently appearing in most livable city lists. They have come a long way since 1788 when it was established as a penal colony and the first European settlement in Australia. We are stayed near Martin Place for 17 days over Christmas and New Years Eve. Here are some pictures from the city’s center and inner suburbs.

Martin Place – “Civic Heart” of Sydney

Martin Place was the location of the 2014 terrorist attack. A memorial to the attack was dedicated on December 16th, one day before we checked into our nearby hotel.

Town Hall – Built 1866 – 1890

Queen Victoria Building (QVB) – Built 1898, designed as a market and still functions as mall

Sydney Observatory / Observatory Hill Park – Built 1857 – 1859, Original site of Fort Philip
