The Sydney Opera House

A Symbol of Modern Australia

To the locals, the Sydney harbor bridge has a much deeper meaning than being just an iconic landmark. To those who live outside Australia, it has to be something they have already seen on postcards and movies. Essentially, this glorious construction is something that belongs to every Sydneysider, who are more than willing to share it with the rest of the world. And, no matter how many times you drive it, walk it or drift under it, you’ll always feel its power washing over you.

The History

The bridge spans 1149 meters, and its arches span 503 meters. And, slightly over six million rivets have been used for its construction. The bridge carries eight lanes for vehicles, a footway and a cycleway, too. Moreover, it carries two train lines and has set the World Record as the world’s widest long-span bridge!  

Ever since the official opening, the bridge has become the most famous symbol of this magnificent continent. The bridge is positioned across the city’s astonishing natural harbour and it has become the most photographed feature of Sydney. This iconic construction had been used in numerous books and movies. What’s more, in the 2000 Olympic Games, during the closing ceremony, the organizers used it as a closing centerpiece.
