Sydney Opera House
The symbol of Sydney, indeed of Australia! Designed by the Danish architect Jørn Utzon in 1955, its three hulls covered with white ceramic tiles sparkle under the sun, as if floating on the bay.
It took six years to build the world's widest steel bridge, which has become the essential artery linking the north and south of the city. Inaugurated in 1932, it remained for a long time, for the post-war immigrants arriving by boat after an interminable journey, the emblem of Sydney.
Located to the west of the CBD (Central Business District), Darling Harbour, all pedestrian, beats to the rhythm of shops, cafes, entertainment, playgrounds, and office buildings. In the middle of this temple of consumption, a peaceful refuge: the Chinese Garden of Friendship, where one forgets time...
Royal Botanic Gardens
Luxuriant gardens where you can stroll under the songs of cockatoos and kookaburras before walking along the bay to see the sails of the Opera appear through the leaves of red cedars, lotus, or aloes.
Art Gallery of NSW
At the entrance to the Domain, 34 hectares of green space south of the botanical gardens and overlooking Woolloomooloo Bay, the Art Gallery is a haven of coolness and light behind its neoclassical orange sandstone façade.
