A brief history of Sydney migration

Throughout its history, migration has played a crucial role in shaping Sydney into the cosmopolitan city it is today. Before European settlement, the area now known as Sydney was inhabited by Indigenous Australians. In 1788, the First Fleet of British convicts and settlers arrived. Over the years, waves of immigrants from Europe, Asia, the Middle East, and other regions have contributed to the city's multicultural fabric. 

The interactions and contributions of various migrant communities have made Sydney a diverse and dynamic metropolis, reflecting the multicultural nature of modern Australia.
