Greater Sydney Travel Guide

Greater Sydney

Other points of interest are the north-side beaches, particularly Manly, and the historic city of Parramatta, founded in 1788 and 26 km (16 miles) to the west; and the magnificent Hawkesbury River, which winds its way around the city's western and northern borders.
