CNNGo TV in Sydney
What started as a destination for British convicts in the late 1700s has evolved into one of the greatest lifestyle cities in the world today.
Our tour of Sydney took us from the beach, to the eclectic neighborhoods, through the Central Business District, and -- not surprisingly -- back to the beach again.
Speaking of beach ...
Bondi is pretty nice we think.
Eugene Tan has Aquabumps

Family design duo in Paddington
The neighborhood of Paddington is just a short stroll from the city center. It's filled with old terrace houses, quaint shops, and many cafes.
It's also home to many young Australian designers, including the brother and sister team of Camilla and Marc.
Their flagship store is located on Glenmore Road near Oxford Street.

Laughs with Chris Radburn
Comedian Chris Radburn welcomed to an institution for Sydney's Eastern Suburbs. The Golden Sheaf in Double Bay has been around for about 75 years. If you're looking for a casual drink and a great bite of Aussie fare, get the Sheaf's details at www.goldensheaf.com.au.
The best butcher in the world
Sydney is a barbecuer's dream this time of the year. And the butcher Victor Churchill in Woollahra is, according to chef Peter Gilmore, "The best butcher in the world."
Guests can take a butcher class, pick up a T-bone, or go for broke with the David Blackmore Wagyu beef for a mere A$189 (US$186) a kilogram.
Surf champ Laura Enever
We round things out with a trip to the birthplace of surfing in Australia, thanks to the reigning World Junior Champion Laura Enever.
