Sydney Cove is a small bay that lies on the southern shore of Sydney Harbour in Sydney. This cove holds a lot of historical significance as it was named after the British Home Secretary, Thomas Townshend, Lord Sydney. It was the site chosen by Captain Arthur Phillip between 21 and 23 January 1788 for the British penal settlement which is now the city of Sydney, and where possession of New South Wales was formally declared on 26 January (now commemorated as Australia Day). Although there are not many things to do as you reach this historical landmark, yet the very view from here of Sydney city will be awe inspiring. On the left, you shall be able to see The Rocks and Sydney Opera house on the right.
