Sydney Port is the busiest and most iconic port in Australia, located in the heart of one of the world's most vibrant and cosmopolitan cities. As the gateway to the country, it serves as a hub for international trade, tourism, and commerce. The port offers a range of facilities and services, including state-of-the-art cargo terminals, cruise ship terminals, and marinas for recreational boaters. With its stunning harbor views and world-famous landmarks like the Opera House and Harbour Bridge, Sydney Port is a must-visit destination for any traveler to Australia.

Vibrant, cosmopolitan Sydney is like a huge patchwork.



Foodies and surfers, hedonists and backpackers — everyone finds their own Sydney: some a beach city, some a jungle of skyscrapers and the financial capital of the country.

Australia's largest city and the state capital of New South Wales is set in the rolling hills of the rugged Tasman Sea coastline. If you stretch the coastline of its bays, harbors, inlets and islands, it's more than 340 kilometers long. Sydney is the center of the East Coast, firmly connected to the water. Its canonical views are aboard pleasure boats, but the best is from the Harbor Bridge, soaring over the bay. The urban development of Greater Sydney is surrounded by a green ring of national parks. Several areas of Sydney Harbour, protected as both land and seascapes, also have national park status.

Legend has it that long ago, the area now known as Sydney Harbor was inhabited by a giant serpent named Goorialla. Goorialla was the protector of the land and water, and the local Aboriginal people believed that he created the harbor by digging out the valleys and rivers with his massive body.

One day, Goorialla decided to visit the mountains to the west of the harbor. As he moved through the landscape, he created new rivers and valleys with each step. However, as he approached the Blue Mountains, he grew tired and laid down to rest. While he slept, the people of the area saw an opportunity to kill him and set out to do so.

As the people approached Goorialla, he awoke and became enraged. He began to thrash about, causing great damage to the landscape and creating the deep channels and rocky outcrops that still exist in the harbor today. Eventually, Goorialla managed to slither away and return to his home in the harbor.

From that day on, the people of the area knew to respect the power of Goorialla and the importance of the harbor that he had created. They also believed that his spirit still resides in the waters, protecting the land and people who call it home.
