Inhabited for at least 50,000 years, Sydney was visited by Captain Cook in 1770, and later settled in 1788 by Captain Phillip and the First Fleet. Possessing two superb natural harbors (Botany Bay to the south and Sydney Harbor to the north), the city grew steadily. Currently it is the home of more than 4 million inhabitants from over one hundred countries. The image is located at 33.9 degrees south latitude and 151.1 degrees east longitude.
