Sydney-blogA few weeks ago we told you about a far far away destination. A destination on the other side of the world. This week we travel to the antipodes and we talk about Oceania’s largest city, Sydney.

The great cosmopolitan center of Australia is located in the eastern area of ​​the island, in the state of New South Wales. Over 4 million inhabitants in the oldest city ofvthe former British colony.

Sydney is the second city in the southern hemisphere that has organized the Summer Olympic Games, right at the start of the millennium. This city is not only the largest and most populated city in Australia, it is also the financial capital of Australia. Sydney generates 25% of the GDP of the entire country, a great economic engine that has grown from manufacturing, information and creative industries. The famous Fox media group has a film studio in the city. And hosts 90 banks and one of the most important options market in the world.

Like any city that has grown around a large harbour, its logistics sector is very important. The manufactures are moving in the south and west of a huge natural bay.

    Hi, I am currently living in Madrid and would like to send a duffle bag with mainly clothes back to Australia. The weight is approx, 7 kg and dimensions roughly 56x35x35.
    Could you give an estimated cost to ship this bag back? It is not priority so shipping by sea is acceptable.
    Thank you!
    Jennifer

      Good afternoon Jennifer,
      Welcome to our blog, we’re glad you contacted us. We will give you the information and quotation you request by e-mail.
      But first we’d like to recommend you on using a cardboard box instead of the bag (or send the bag inside the box), so the bag won’t get damaged in its way to Australia we have some tips here.

      Thanks to you.
