    The Sydney 2000 Summer Olympic Games or the Millennium Olympic Games/Games of the New Millennium, officially known as the Games of the XXVII Olympiad, were an international multi-sport event which was celebrated between 15 September and 1 October 2000 in Sydney, New South Wales, Australia. It was the second time that the Summer Olympics were held in the Southern Hemisphere, the first one being in Melbourne, Victoria in 1956. These were the first games since the Seoul games to be conducted during the Northern Hemisphere autumn season (which the city was actually during the Southern Hemisphere spring season), joining the aforementioned Melbourne games (which were held during the Southern Hemisphere summer), the Tokyo games (conducted in October 1964), the Mexico City Games (conducted in October 1968), and the Seoul games.
