Sydney SunSydney Sun | The latest news & events in Sydney, Australia
Sydney Sun works strenuously to bring our readers a completely independent perspective of Sydney news. Our editors, software programmers, journalists and affiliated wire services here at Sydney Sun are all dedicated to producing the best journalism possible.
This is a world where conflicts of interest pervade business empires, and political dynasties, and where a shrinking number of media proprietors are growing their interests at the expense of diversity of media ownership. The Sydney Sun was established more than a decade ago as an independent online newspaper, or eNewspaper, named after the Sydney Sun newspaper, first published more than a hundred years ago.
Our focus primarily is to produce the latest breaking stories out of Sydney, Australia's biggest city, as it occurs. There is also a focus on the wider metropolitan area with news of what is taking place in Manly and other suburbs on the northern beaches, Bondi Beach and the eastern suburbs; North Sydney, Parramatta and the Western Suburbs; through to the Blue Mountains and out into the Central West, down to Wagga Wagga and the southern regional cities and up the North Coast with stories from cities like Port Macquarie, and Coffs Harbour, as well as the latest events from Gosford and other key centres on the Central Coast, Newcastle and the Hunter, down to Wollongong and the Illawarra.
Sydney Sun also covers the nation. Regional news too is a priority, as is our extensive world news coverage. For a Sydney weather report, local news, breaking international headlines, or what is happening in sports, the Sydney Sun is here for you.
Our business centre too is active 24 hours a day providing the latest market updates and news from key global centres like Tokyo, Sydney, London, Paris, Hong Kong, Frankfurt, Chicago and New York.

Researchers from Australia have found that women spend almost twice as much time on housework and childcare than men, even when they increase their time in paid employment.

Once their children are in school and they increase their paid work, they still devote 29 hours a week to chores while spending 25 hours a week in paid employment.
Fathers with children under five spend 15 hours a week on housework, rising to 17 hours once children are aged 5-14 and their partners increase their paid workload.
Mothers of under-fives do a total of 88 hours' work each week, including housework, paid work, childcare and voluntary work, compared with men who contribute 79 hours.
But once children are aged 5-14, hours of work equalise as both fathers and mothers contribute 75 hours a week, with paid work making up the bulk of men's time.
Australian Institute of Family Studies senior researcher Jennifer Baxter said while women had made great strides in the workplace, the domestic front was different. ...
