Sydney, Canada has very little in common with its shared name cousin from down under. For one, it is quite small, being located in the peninsular province of Nova Scotia. There are no wallabys or koalas, but there is certainly an abundance of natural beauty.
Sydney, more of a community than actual city, is located Cape Breton Island (no relation to Breton crackers, I don’t think). This island is located at the far Northeastern tip of the province, and has experienced a boom in tourism over the years due to said natural beauty.
This was the place to see some of the most beautiful fall foliage. I mean, the roads along the famed Cabot Trail and up in the highlands (the Scots were attracted to this place for a reason) were lined with vibrant hues from the frostbitten leaves.
And yes there is another Canadian Sidney from Nova Scotia, but we’ll get to him later…
