Located in the southern tip of the eastern coast of Australia. Sydney is one of the largest and most famous cities on the Australian continent and the largest metropolis in the world. Not surprisingly, some consider it the capital of Australia. Sydney was founded in 1788 by Captain Arthur Phillip who led the fleet ships from England.

After gold was found in the areas of Sydney and Melbourne, these two cities began to develop successfully.

To solve this dispute it was decided to build a new city, which is located between Sydney and Melbourne. The new capital was called Canberra.
