Sydney is located southeast of Australia, on the banks of the wide Bay of Jackson. The city was built around Port Jackson, which includes Sydney Harbour. In the city stands the Sydney Opera House, the Sydney Harbour Bridge and its beaches. The metropolitan area is surrounded by national parks containing bays and rivers. The city has hosted international sporting events like the 1938 British Empire Games, the 2000 Summer Olympics and the final of the 2003 Rugby World Cup, among others.
Sydney's urban area is in a coastal basin, which is washed and bordered by the Pacific Ocean to the east, the Blue Mountains to the west, the Hawkesbury River to the north and the Royal National Park south.
Sydney has a humid subtropical climate with mild summers and rather cold winters with little rainfall. The climate is moderated by the proximity to the sea, and the most extreme temperatures are recorded in the inland western suburbs.
