History [link]

Sydney harbour in 1932

There was violent resistance to British settlement, notably by the warrior Pemulwuy in the area around Botany Bay, and conflicts were common in the area surrounding the Hawkesbury River. By 1820 there were only a few hundred Aborigines and Governor Macquarie had begun initiatives to ‘civilise, Christianise and educate’ the Aborigines by removing them from their clans. [ 20 ] Macquarie’s tenure as Governor of New South Wales was a period when Sydney was improved from its basic beginnings. Roads, bridges, wharves and public buildings were constructed by British and Irish convicts. and by 1822 the town had banks, markets, well-established thoroughfares and an organised constabulary.

Rapid suburban development began in the last quarter of the 19th century with the advent of steam-powered tramways and railways. With industrialisation Sydney expanded rapidly and, by the early 20th century, it had a population of more than a million. In 1929, the novelist Arthur Henry Adams called it the Siren City of the South and the Athens of Australia. [ 27 ] The Great Depression hit Sydney badly. One of the highlights of the Depression era, however, was the completion of the Sydney Harbour Bridge in 1932. [ 28 ] There has traditionally been a rivalry between Sydney and Melbourne since the gold rushes of the 1850s made the capital of Victoria Australia’s largest and richest city. [ 29 ] Sydney overtook Melbourne in population in the early years of the 20th century, [ 30 ] and continues to be the largest city in Australia. During the 1970s and 1980s, Sydney’s CBD, with a great number of financial institutions including the headquarters of the Reserve Bank. surpassed Melbourne as the nation’s financial capital. [ 31 ] Throughout the 20th century, especially in the decades immediately following World War II, Sydney continued to expand as large numbers of European and later Asian immigrants took up residence in the metropolitan area.
