Australia is made up of 6 states and 2 territories. I come from the state of New South Wales, Sydney being the capital city and my home town. Sydney is famous for it's beautiful harbour, Opera House and Harbour Bridge. There is also a tunnel that runs parallel to the bridge to carry the ever increasing traffic across the harbour.

    New South Wales is "The Gambling State"with rugby league clubs being very popular. For a small membership fee (from $10 to $15 per year) they offer many amenities such as very good low cost meals, cheap beer and free entertainment. There are plenty of poker machines (slot machines) to play. The only day they close is Christmas day. Many of the large Sydney clubs have heated indoor pools, libraries, cinemas, and many more features, all free for their members to use. Visitors are always welcome.
