The Sydney graticule lies at -33 degrees latitude, 151 degrees longitude.

Sydney is Australia's largest and oldest city, and is full of interesting places and twisted, hard-to-find streets. It is a rich cultural tapestry with hidden surprises lurking around every corner, waiting to be found.

In other words, it's perfect for geohashing.

[edit] Sydney Surrounds

Metropolitan Sydney's vast urban sprawl has led to its occupation of two graticules (well, four really, but only just). To the West lies the Blue Mountains graticule. This area includes much of Western Sydney as well as the Blue Mountains themselves. On days when the Sydney target falls in the Pacific Ocean, there is often a suitable location in this graticule.

To the South-West, the outlying suburb of Campbelltown is firmly within the Wollongong graticule, whilst Sutherland lies in a graticule directly South that is almost entirely ocean.
