The guide's six district chapters--The Rocks and Circular Quay, City Center, Darling Harbour, Botanic Gardens and The Domain, Kings Cross and Darlinghurst, and Paddington--help you navigate through each area with accurate street-by-street maps and illustrated 3-D overviews. Along the way, all the sights are covered, including the impressive Sydney Harbour Bridge, vividly captured in a two-page layout highlighted by a fascinating look in its construction, in 1932. Another architectural marvel of contemporary Sydney is the city's tallest vantage point, Sydney Tower, which is showcased in a cutaway of its turret's nine levels. The city's renowned Royal Botanic Gardens are spotlighted with a dazzling overview surrounded by photos of its monuments and attractions. Additional features showcase such sights as the National Maritime Museum, Sydney Aquarium, the Australian Museum, the Powerhouse Museum, and the Art Gallery of New South Wales.

Sydney's enthralling history is fully detailed in a comprehensive chapter complete with timelines, illustrations, and photos of its remarkable ancient artifacts.
