Tara Guest House is an alternative option to the usual Sydney bed & breakfast. It offers guests a gracious and stylish place to stay in the Enmore Newtown area of Sydney, within easy and convenient reach of Circular Quay. We are very close to Sydney and UTS Universities with a great choice of restaurants literally around the corner, as is Sydney's iconic Enmore theatre, home of the best local and international acts to come to Sydney - even the Rolling Stones have played here. Rooms are seriously generous in size, each with its own character.
There are no kangaroos in Austria. We're talking about Australia, the world's smallest continent. That being cleared up, let's dive right in! Australia is a sovereign state under the Commonwealth of Nations, which is in turn overseen by Queen Elizabeth the Second, by the Grace of God, Queen of Australia and Her other Realms and Territories, Head of the Commonwealth. The continent was first sighted and charted by the Dutch in 1606. Captain James Cook of Britain came along in the next century to claim it for Britain and name it "New South Wales." Shortly thereafter it was declared to be a penal colony full of nothing but criminals and convicts, giving it the crap reputation you may have heard at your last cocktail party. This rumor ignores 40,000 years of pre-European human history, especially the Aboriginal concept of Dreamtime, an interesting explanation of physical and spiritual reality. The two biggest cities in Australia are Sydney and Melbourne. Sydney is more for business, Melbourne for arts. But that's painting in very broad strokes.
