From modern buildings to amazing scenery, Australia is more than you think! Let's go to the "Land Down Under".
The Sydney Opera House, Sydney

The Sydney Opera House is another recognizable building, considered one of the wonders of the modern world. The building became an iconic landmark in 1973, representing Australia. The idea came after the Second World War. Australians realized that their country lacked a world class opera house. In 1954, the government of New South Wales decided a new opera house should be built on Bennelong Point. Construction started in 1958 and finished in 1973. The Sydney Opera House attracts about 2 million people each year, making it a vey popular world culture institution.
The Great Barrier Reef, Queensland
Harbour Bridge, Sydney

Harbour Bridge is a long, steel arch bridge connecting the center of the city to residential areas in the north. Along with the Sydney Opera House, it's also a famous landmark in Australia. Construction started in 1929 and finished in 1932. Harbour Bridge portrays a great view of the harbor, and the Sydney Opera House. A very interesting way to visit the bridge is the BridgeClimb-a 3 and a half hour tour to the top of the arch.
