Sydney is the capital city of New South Wales in Australia, but it is NOT, as some people think, the Capital City of Australia.
Sydney is often looked at in TWO different ways; the City of Sydney and the Greater Sydney areas.
The Greater Sydney Area reaches past Wyong and Gosford in the North down to the Royal National Park in the South, with its Western point being past the Blue Mountains.
