Opera House
  
 Bennelong Point, Sydney 




 The Sydney Opera House, caters for all the performing arts and is one of the world's most unusal buildings. Architect by Danish architect Jorn Utzon and was opened by Queen Elizabeth in 1973. in 1957-73, urban waterfront of Expressionist Modern style. Great stairway, family of forms in spherical section roofs, pure curving shapes that across the harbor in great heroic harmony. Sculptural tripartite Opera House was one of the longest contractual sagas of the century. Sadly, architect Jorn Utzon became the scapegoat of a scandalous political affair and in 1966 withdrew from his project. These were made possible by Ove Arup. Originally the winner of an international open competition in 1957, it was a scheme that broke most of the rules. It was finally completed in August 1973 by other hands under the direction of Peter Hall.

The Rocks
  
 Sydney



 Iron balconies in the Rocks district of Sydney were once the ballast brought out from England. The Rocks means just that - a place where there used to be rocks. The criminals who were sent to Australia from England cut those rocks to make this dock, the houses and the roads. This is the home of Sydney's culture. When you walk along the gravel roads, you can take a look at Australia's greatest modern art and the artworks of Australian natives. On the weekends, outdoor concerts are given here. If you get tired of walking, you can get a delicious cup of tea at the outdoor cafes nearby. And you can sit and watch the ships sailing by.
