About City of Sydney open data

Our open data portal connects our residents, businesses and visitors to our ever-expanding datasets.

As we add more datasets across a huge variety of subjects and encourage others to contribute, this portal aims to increase our understanding of how our city works. The information is available in a number of formats including raw data tables, charts and maps. Simply pick a category and explore the relevant datasets, search the listing of datasets or take a look at recently added or most popular for inspiration.

Please send feedback or requests for additional datasets to ems@cityofsydney.nsw.gov.au.


Currently all data provided through this portal has been supplied by the City of Sydney as the sole contributor. We invite contributions from other government agencies and private enterprise. Contact us if you want to suggest a dataset you would like to access.

City of Sydney open data uses CKAN and NationalMap.
