Travel tips you can trust
Sydney in Australia has one of the world's most stimulating harbors. Its tourism treasures include the celebrated Sydney Opera House and the Sydney Harbour Bridge.
Sydney Harbour has two of Australia's top icons:
Sydney Opera House
It's a Hillman Wonders silver medalist. Click the link below to read my web page on that Australia wonder.
Sydney Harbour Bridge
The other renowned and oft-photographed icon is the Sydney Harbour Bridge (see photo). It was built in 1932 and has picked up several nicknames, including "the coat hanger" (which the structure vaguely resembles)
You can take a guided tour to the very top of the bridge. You walk up the giant arch on its catwalk and are hooked to a safety line in case you slip. You also need to climb ladders and navigate tight passageways. The views and adventure are thrilling, though the price is quite steep for some pocketbooks.
