Originally established as a prison colony for the British Empire after the American Declaration of Independence of 1776 in 1788 (although it was inhabited by Australian Aboriginals for more than 30,000 years earlier), the city of Sydney has become into a major global cultural and economic center, and is also the most populated city in the Oceania region.
