Famous People in Sydney

Sydney, Australia’s largest city, has a population of over 5.7 million people according to a 2019 survey. The city has a very friendly climate that attracts thousands of tourists and new residents every year. They host a range of fun events every year, drawing a wide array of visitors for various reasons.  Just like most other continents, the summers are hot, winters are mild and spring is dry. This is much more appealing to people than the wet, cold winters experienced in other countries. Being the largest and one of the most popular cities in Australia, Sydney has been and still is home to a long list of very popular individuals.
