What's it like to live there?

The inner city areas of Sydney, such as Newtown, Glebe, Surry Hills and Paddington, contain a vibrant and culturally diverse community. The St George and Sutherland Shire areas have a strong surfing culture and offer multicultural communities in suburbs such as Rockdale and Kogarah. And Sydney International and Domestic Airports are only 15 minutes from the city centre.
