Yeah...We've always just visited the harbour side (Circular Quay), Darling Harbour and the Royal Botanic gardens - In other words, the touristy spots.

And for those saying Sydney looks like Los Angeles (in the other threads), well, the CBD of Parramatta kinda does (as do most of our suburbs in the western sprawl):

I don't think it's in Paris. More like in the banlieue.

Close enough. I think this place has been cleared. Or at least they eventually get cleared by the authorities as they are set up.

You have these squatter settlements in most parts of Europe on the outskirts of cities and towns. They usually are populated by a particular ethnic group.

They are ALWAYS populated by a particular ethnic group and their passports ALWAYS say Romania or Bulgaria.

Those areas are best cleared out with flame throwers.
