As my Sydney entries have grown, and will grow further over time, I have added this link  page by way of an index such that my reader can find/read reviews based on local government (Council) areas within Greater Sydney, as detailed on the map below.

3

Immediately below is a list of the Council Areas on which I have written reviews to date. Non location specific reviews have their own separate category and for the sake of convenience I have added Sydney Harbour & its Islands as a separate ‘Council Area’ – though it is not one.

I have split the CITY OF SYDNEY, the Council area most frequented by visitors, into a number of areas as depicted on the map and detailed below.
