Sydney Opera House
The Sydney Opera House is one of the most famous landmarks of Australia. It was built from 1959 to 1973. The official opening was on the 20th of October 1973. The Sydney Opera House was designed by the architect Jorn Utzon. Since the 28th June 2007 the Sydney Opera House is part of the UNESCO World Heritage. Inside the building there are five theatre halls with more than 5500 seats. Overall there are more than 500 Rooms inside.
Sydney Harbour Bridge
The Sydney Harbour Bridge is the main line between north- and south coast of Australia. The construction of the bridge started on July 1923 and finished on the 19th January 1932. On the 19th march 1932 it was officially opened. The bridge is 1149 meters long and the locals call it the “coast hanger” what means in german “kleiderbügel”. The Sydney Harbour Bridge isn´t just for cars and trains there is also a sidewalk and a bikeway. From the Bridge you have a great view over the skyline of Sydney and especially the Sydney opera house.
Great Barrier Reef
The great Barrier Reef is the worldwide greatest coral reef. It consists of 2500 single reefs and comprises 347800 square kilometers. The Great Barrier Reef is placed on the north-east coast of Australia in the Pacific Ocean. It was discovered in 1770 by the British sailor James Cook. Since the 28th October 1981 it is a part of the UNESCO World Heritage. But the existence of the Great Barrier Reef is threatened because of the global warming.
The Uluru is also known as Ayers Rock. It´s a large sandstone rock formation in the southern part of the Northern Territory in central Australia. The mountain comprises a length of 3 km is up to 2 km wide and 348 meters high. The Aborigines believe that the Uluru is sacred. Until 1990 only the Aborigines called the Rock Uluru. All other people called it Ayers Rock because the researcher William Gosse, who found the Mountain in 1873, named it after the then prime minister Henry Ayers. Since 1930 many tourists come to visit the rock formation and the breath-taking view from the top.
