If there is one place associated with Sydney, it is definitely its Opera House. Designed by Danish architect Jørn Utzon and opened in 1973, the performing arts centre has been made a UNESCO World Heritage Site since 2007. Its modern design, comparable to shells, make it the most photographed building in Australia.

The Sydney Opera house is located on Bennelong Point in Sydney Harbour, close to the Sydney Harbour Bridge. It sits at the northeastern tip of the Sydney central business district (the CBD), surrounded on three sides by the harbour (Sydney Cove and Farm Cove) and inland by the Royal Botanic Gardens.

Beside the pictures you can take of the building, the Harbour sidewalk and the Botanic Gardens make for a great promenade and will give you a beautiful glimpse into the vibrant and laid-back atmosphere of the biggest Australian city and the state capital of New South Wales.
