AUSTRALIA: Sydney and Canberra
Australia Engineering Program
Australia is well known for its natural beauty and unique contemporary culture. The country is renowned for its rich wildlife, spectacular beaches, and amazing physical features such as the red deserts of the Outback and the Great Barrier Reef. In addition to boasting a variety of untouched natural wonders, Australia is also one of the world's most highly urbanised countries and is well known for the cosmopolitan attractions of its culturally rich cities.
Sydney: Sydney is the most populous city of Australia and is built around Sydney Harbour, leading to its nickname, "the Harbour City". It is most noted for the Sydney Opera House, Harbour Bridge and beaches such as Bondi. With 240 days of warm sunshine and multiple fun activities to choose from, many view Sydney as Australia's favorite city. The city itself is surrounded by national parks (with majestic mountain ranges & the World Heritage Rainforests of the Blue Mountains), contains many bays (such as the endless white sandy beaches of Port Stephens), and rivers and inlets (making it a delightful wine growing area such as the Hunter Wine Valley). There are also outback koala and animal farms, and fruit picking orchards. Between the museums, shops, dinning, harbor cruises, botanic gardens, beaches, historic sights, and eco-delightful surroundings, Sydney is endlessly discoverable.
Canberra: From wildlife to nightlife, from national monuments to National Parks, from observatories to conservatories and physical culture to viticulture, Australia's capital, Canberra, is a city of many parts. Of all the cities in Australia, you will find that Canberra is one of the most convenient, safe, and pleasant in which to live and study. Medium-sized by Australian standards, Canberra combines the advantages of big city life - shopping malls, cinemas, art galleries, sporting facilities, markets, theatres, festivals and coffee shops - with all the aspects usually associated with smaller cities - void of traffic congestion and pollution problems, and blessed with an abundance of greenery, to name a couple.
