Sydney suburbs map
Sydney suburb map. Sydney suburbs map (Australia) to print. Sydney suburbs map (Australia) to download. The extensive area covered by urban Sydney is formally divided into 649 suburbs (for addressing and postal purposes), and administered as 40 local government areas. There is no metropolitan-wide government, but the government of New South Wales and its agencies have extensive responsibilities in providing metropolitan services. The City of Sydney itself covers a fairly small area comprising the central business district and its neighbouring inner-city suburbs as you can see in sydney suburbs map. In addition, regional descriptions are used informally to conveniently describe larger sections of the urban area. These include Eastern Suburbs, Hills District, Inner West, Canterbury-Bankstown, Greater Western Sydney, Northern Beaches, Northern Suburbs, North Shore, St George, Southern Sydney, South-western Sydney, Sutherland Shire and Western Sydney.
Inner eastern suburbs such as Potts Point, Darlinghurst and Surry Hills as its shown in sydney suburbs map provide a diverse range of shops for the culturally creative and alternative lifestyle groups that live there, whilst other inner eastern areas like Paddington and Woollahra are home to boutiques selling more niche products. Inner western suburbs like Newtown and Glebe cater more towards students and alternative lifestyles. Double Bay in Sydney harbourside eastern suburbs is un upmarket area known for its expensive boutiques. Seaside areas, including Bondi Beach in the eastern beaches area and Manly in the northern beaches area, have a retail scene based upon their beach locations, with many surfing and surfer style clothing shops. Sydney received 7.8 million domestic visitors and 2.5 million international visitors in 2004. In 2007, the (then) Premier of New South Wales, Morris Iemma established Events New South Wales to "market Sydney and NSW as a leading global events destination". Fox Studios Australia has large film studios in the city.
If you draw a line roughly from Sydney CBD down to the airport (so basically the M1 motorway), the suburbs to the east of that line make up the area known as Sydney Eastern Suburbs as its mentioned in sydney suburbs map. This area is known for its affluency, and you do pay a premium for being so close to the coast. The harbourside suburbs at the top, like Point Piper and Vaucluse, are seriously expensive and full of multi-million dollar mansions – It is basically Sydney Bel Air. The beaches are gorgeous with great views of the city skyline and you do not have the traffic noise like further south. Neighbouring Watsons Bay, right at the tip, has some very cool bush tracks, seaside restaurants and clifftop views – perfect for watching the city light up after sunset. Continue north from Mona Vale and you are on a narrow peninsula with the ocean waves crashing in to the east and Pittwater serenely flowing between here and the Ku-ring-gai Chase National Park to the west. If Sydney is the UK then this upper northern beaches peninsula would be Devon and Cornwall: beach-style houses on steep, narrow streets that wind down through tall forests and emerge onto friendly, local beaches like Clareville and Paradise Beach.
From Sydney CBD head north over the Sydney Harbour Bridge and you will find what is known as the Lower North Shore as you can see sydney suburbs map– and much of it is very, very lovely. The Lower North Shore has a less hectic feel than the Eastern Suburbs, yet it is still only a quick train or bus ride from the city. Areas like North Sydney and Kirribilli are so convenient for city workers. Further west you have got suburbs with quiet leafy streets and killer views of the city; a few of my friends live here and love it. Waverton has its own train station and easy access to Balls Head Reserve, the perfect place for a picnic at sunset. Greenwich is a beautiful waterside suburb. The inland area from Chatswood up to Hornsby is Sydney Upper North Shore. Hornsby has some great walking tracks. Chatswood, however, is very busy with some large shopping centres and tall buildings; it is almost a little city within itself.
