Iconic Landmarks of Sydney

Australia seems to be one of the first countries to celebrate the New Year.  I can recall watching their fireworks on the last day of 1999 around 9 am of my New Year’s eve.  It was a big deal, turning the clock to the year 2000 and we watched the countries from around the world marking that moment.  Watch the event as it was recorded.  The back drop of that site is the Sydney Harbour Bridge.

The Sydney Opera House is a distinctive landmark as well.  You will see it often in your lifetime when Australia marks a significant moment in time.  I actually remember when it was completed (1973) and it made quite a big impact with its unusual design.  The roof contains large white shell shaped sails providing a dramatic representation of the Sydney Harbour and city.
