    Description: Sydney University and grounds
    Sydney University is the oldest university in Australia founded in 1850. The founding principle as Australia's oldest university was that it was to be a modern and progressive university, supporting students of all backgrounds to further their education, admitting students solely on academic merit, and opened their doors to women on the same basis as men.

    The sandstone buildings of the past now stand alongside the contemporary and modern buildings of today. 

    Suggested points of interest -  University Quadrangle, Great Hall, Old school of Medicine, Graffiti Tunnel, Charles Perkins Centre, Residential Colleges.
