Sydney Harbour Bridge

The Sydney Harbour Bridge is a steel through arch bridge across Sydney Harbour that carries rail, vehicular, bicycle and pedestrian traffic between the Sydney central business district (CBD) and the North Shore. The dramatic view of this structure makes it one of Australia’s most famous landmarks.

The bridge was designed by Dorman Long and Co Ltd of Middlesbrough in England with local engineering firm Watson Farley & Williams as structural engineers; John Bradfield was appointed chief engineer for its construction by New South Wales Minister for Public Works Michael Bruxner on 23 January 1921 after having been nominated by J J C Bradfield.[3] The foundations for piers ‘A’ to ‘D’ were laid with concrete blocks rather than deep footings because there were concerns about subsidence due to subterranean springs.[4] The archways rest on each shoreline precisely above high water level so that ships may pass underneath unimpeded.[5][6][7]

Opera House

The Opera House is the most famous landmark in Australia. It was designed by Danish architect Jorn Utzon and built between 1959 and 1973, with its opening night held on 20 October 1973. The building has received many awards, including being on the list of UNESCO World Heritage Sites.

The Opera House has a total floor area of 2,700 square metres (30,000 sq ft). Its roof comprises 507 translucent panels that allow sunlight into the building’s interiors during daytime.[3] In addition to this, there are 3 large performance spaces: Concert Hall (2,679 seats), Drama Theatre (1,003 seats) and Playhouse (368 seats).

Ayers Rock (Uluru)

  • Ayers Rock (Uluru)
  • Uluru-Kata Tjuta National Park is a UNESCO World Heritage Site and home to the largest monolith in the world, Ayers Rock. It’s also sacred to indigenous people who believe it was formed by ancestral beings who traveled from underground through caves and tunnels. This site has been used for thousands of years as a place of worship, ceremony, meditation and refuge by Aboriginal peoples.

The rock itself measures approximately 1 kilometer high by 3 kilometers wide; its color changes throughout the day depending on light conditions so it may appear red or orange in some areas then blueish-purple at others times of day when sunlight hits differently against its surface

Great Barrier Reef

The Great Barrier Reef is the world’s largest coral reef system, located off the coast of Queensland, Australia. It is made up of over 3000 individual reefs and stretches over 2,300 kilometers (1,400 miles). The Great Barrier Reef can be seen from space!

The park covers 8,000 square kilometers, making it larger than Belgium or Luxembourg.
