Regions of Sydney
Like many major cities, Sydney's residents, known throughout Australia as 'Sydneysiders', refer to different regions of the City by different names. These areas don't always correspond directly to official boundaries of suburbs, or local government authorities, but instead refer to broader, and occasionally less well defined areas.
