City of Sydney
With its excellent beaches and year-round mild weather, Sydney is the perfect place to try surfing, sailing, stand up paddle boarding, and other aquatic activities.
Sydney is the most populous city in Australia with over 4.6 million inhabitants with approximately 28% of the population was born elsewhere. Sydney is a consistently high-ranking world city for quality of life.
The City of Sydney introduced a Sustainable Sydney 2030 program, with various targets planned and a guide on how to reduce energy in homes and offices by 30%. The city also has an “urban forest growth strategy” which aims to increase the tree coverage in the city by planting trees and vegetation to provide cleaner air and create moisture during hot weather, thus lowering city temperatures.
