Icons One and Two - Sydney Australia.
Icons One and Two - Sydney Australia. The Sydney Opera House with the Sydney Harbour Bridge watching over. The opera house turns 40 this week - and the bridge turns 81 this year. Sydney Opera House must be one of the most recognizable images of the modern world - up there with the Eiffel Tower and the Empire State Building - and one of the most photographed. Not only is it recognizable, it has come to represent 'Australia'. Although only having been open since 1973, it is as representative of Australia as the pyramids are of Egypt and the Colosseum of Rome. The Opera House is situated on Bennelong Point, which reaches out into the harbour. The skyline of the Sydney Harbour Bridge, the blue water of the harbour and the Sydney Opera House, viewed from a ferry or from the air, is dramatic and unforgettable. The Sydney Harbour Bridge is one of Australia's most well known and photographed landmarks. It is the world's largest (but not the longest) steel arch bridge with the top of the bridge standing 134 meters above the harbour. Fondly known by the locals as the 'Coathanger', the Sydney Harbour Bridge was officially opened in March 1932. Thank you for visiting and viewing our Nautical Images.
