Its safe to say that Sydney Opera House is one of the most iconic pieces of architecture on planet.
The buildings unique shape and design is instantly recognisable and make it must to see for millions of visiting tourists to Sydney, Australia every year.
Sydney Opera House
Nestled in the stunning Sydney Harbour, the Opera House makes up one of the most distinctive and attractive skylines anywhere in the World.
The Opera House shares some amazing company in this famous harbour with the Harbour Bridge, Royal Botanic Gardens, The Rocks and Taronga Zoo all situated within easy reach of it.
Circular Quay, right next door provides some of Sydney’s finest restaurants and night time venues.
Sydney Opera House is home to world class performances including operas (obviously), live music, musical theatre, ballet and much more.
Its still a vibrant hub for all things art and culture related for many Australians.
The Opera House was opened in 1973 and was way ahead of itself in terms of architecture from that time. It still looks modern, fresh and in some ways like it could have been finished just yesterday!
In 2007, UNESCO awarded The Sydney Opera House World Heritage Status – “Sydney Opera House is a great architectural work of the 20th century. It represents multiple strands of creativity, both in architectural form and structural design, a great urban sculpture carefully set in a remarkable waterscape and a world famous iconic building.” UNESCO
New Years Eve
It also provides a remarkable location from which to witness Sydney’s incredible New Years Eve fireworks display.
This is by far the most spectacular fireworks display I have ever seen and would pay to see it over and over again (even though it costs nothing to see).
It was truly a remarkable experience, one I still relay to (and bore) my family with every 31st December.
With the weather turning bleak here maybe it’s time to pack those bags and jet off Down Under?
