Located on Australia's east coast, Sydney is the state capital of New South Wales and surrounds one of the world's largest natural harbors. It is the oldest European settlement in Australia, founded as a British penal colony on 26 January 1788, though it was already home to an indigenous population. It is now known as the captivating Harbour City with beaches, monuments, landscapes and restaurants.
