History

Sydney is located on Australia's south-east coast and is the state capital of New South Wales; it was also the site of the first European colony in Australia, established in 1788 at Sydney Cove by Arthur Phillip, leader of the First Fleet from Britain.

The city is built around Port Jackson, which includes Sydney Harbour, leading to the city's nickname, "the Harbour City". It is Australia's largest financial center and the economic capital.

Sydney is a major international tourist destination, often referred to as the international gateway of Australia. The metropolitan area is surrounded by national parks, and contains many bays, rivers and inlets.

Given its importance, it is likely that during the final year of the Human-Covenant War the city was attacked by the invading Covenant forces[1].

UNSC HIGHCOM

Sydney is host to a massive base called HIGHCOM Facility Bravo-6[2], and the base three kilometres underneath it, known as "The Hive". It is where members of the UNSC Security Committee discuss matters concerning the safety of the UNSC, Earth, and its Colonies.

SSII

The Sydney Synthetic Intellect Institute, or Double S.I., was a facility located in Sydney. SSII worked with the creation of AI constructs, theorizing new approaches and calculating the details necessary for the creation of the AI.
