Sydney Name Origin
Sydney is named after the first Viscount Sydney, Thomas Townshend, who was British Home Secretary at the time. It was originally known as Sydney Cove.
Sydney Settlement History
Settlement of the area dates from the arrival of the First Fleet in 1788. In the 1800s and early 1900s the area was characterised by a mix of rail yards, a waterfront industrial area and residential use. Since the 1970s the area has undergone significant change, with factories, warehouses and worker’s houses being recycled or replaced with office towers, hotels, apartments and public buildings. In the late 1980s Darling Harbour was remade as a tourist and entertainment site. Rapid population and housing growth took place during the late 1990s, with the population more than doubling between 1996 and 2001. Substantial growth continued between 2001 and 2011 as large numbers of new dwellings continued to be added to the area.
