When you are a visitor to a place, there is nothing like the knowledge of a local to take you to some of the lesser known but equally interesting corners of a city. Sydney has plenty of fascinating nooks and crannies, many of which a lot of the locals don't even know about. So if you are a visitor or a local and eager to do a little exploring on or off the beaten track, here are hundreds of suggestions to get you going.
Sydney's cultural diversity has shaped the city and its suburbs in a major way. Many localities have the unique smells, sights and sounds, cultural, community and family events that typify the cultures and nationalities that are predominant there. In other places, restaurants and shops of diverse ethnic backgrounds form an intoxicating mix that provides both visitors and locals a smorgasbord of choice, often within a single street.
