I just couldn’t get enough of Australia’s most iconic building. This is the view of Sydney Opera House from The Rocks. I had some time before the night walking tour of The Rocks started. I managed to capture these photos during dusk (with a bit of creative post processing in Lightroom).
The Sydney Opera House is spectacular from afar or close up. It’s a remarkable landmark. If we had more time I definitely would have done the Opera House tour. The Opera House was conceptualised in the 1950s and completed in the 1970s. It was Australia’s most iconic building and number one tourist destination. We walked from Circular Quay, along the foreshore, all the way to the Opera House. As expected the walk was full of tourists. Being late in the afternoon, the light was beautiful and golden.
After exploring Martin Place, we continued exploring the rest of Sydney’s CBD. One of my favourite finds was the Public Library Of New South Wales. There is a new and old section of the library and also a few exhibition galleries within the library. We spent a bit of time exploring the place, from the modern Governor Marie Bashir Reading Room to the grand Mitchell Library Reading Room.
For lunch we were craving Dimsum. Place Chinese Restaurant was listed as one of the top place for dimsum in the CBD. It was pack full of office workers on their lunch break. Dimsum was definitely a nice change in cuisine.
After lunch, we spent more time exploring the CBD, walking all the way to Circular Quay.
Next up is the iconic Sydney Opera House and Circular Quay. I was snap happy taking photos of the Opera House, it’s truly a remarkable landmark. Thanks for stopping by today.
