About Sydney CBD

The Sydney central business district (CBD) is the city's historical and commercial heart. The two terms—Sydney CBD and Sydney City—are interchangeable when referring to Sydney. The localities here frequently refer to CBD as "Town" or "the City." Sydney Cove, the site of the first European settlement where the Sydney region was initially created, is located about 3 km (2 mi) south of the Sydney city centre, and due to its pivotal role in Australia's early history, it is regarded one of the longest living areas in the country.

Sydney City serves as Australia's financial and commercial capital and the Asia-Pacific region's most important economic hub. About 22% of the workforce in the Sydney region is concentrated in the city centre and its immediate surroundings, the majority working in white-collar offices in the banking and professional services sectors. Some of the city's most important buildings and structures are also located there. Culturally, the city centre is Sydney's epicentre for nightlife and entertainment for youngsters and older crowds as well. You can watch the Sydney City Guide to learn more about this amazing city!
