I am very saddened to say that the news is correct. There are riots but very localised and i think the police have put the suburb in question on lockdown.

The suburb in question is no where near the tourist area of cruise visitors so please dont stay away because of what you hear.

Of course this could be the beginning of something else who knows . I pray not.

 

this is not usual australian behaviour , we are usually a very safe environment

As kaseyoz noted, the problem is localised. This is something we have never experienced before, The araea is question is not close to the CBD, it's not a tourist attraction and seems to be under control now. We are so shocked by all of this, it's very unusual and the authorities are working hard to sort the problem out.

Thats the best time to arrive, you'll have a great time.

Don't worry about the riots, as we said before they were nowhere near the CBD or tourist areas. Hopefully the situation has settled now, will wait and see what the weekend brings. The authorities seem to have the situation in control now.

Hope you like Sydney, there is so much to see.

The riots in Sydney are so unAustralian. We are all shocked to think that this could happen in our wonderful country.

 

We are all hoping that they will soon be sorted out and life will be back to normal.

 

Hopefully they will not spread down here to Melbourne. We lead a different type of lifestyle down here and so far have not had the same problems as Sydney.
