The iconic Sydney harbour bridge- well worth a visit to take in a show, or just to walk around from the outside- you can easily reach the opera house by taking a bus or train to circular quay and walking from the station (5 mins walk tops!). While you’re there, take a stroll around the foreshore…
Walk the bridge and take in the great views over the harbour, opera house and the city. Be sure to call into the pylon museum to learn about the history of the bridge.

“The Queen Victoria Building (abbreviated as the QVB) is a heritage-listed late-nineteenth-century building designed by the architect George McRae located at 429-481 George Street in the Sydney central business district. The Romanesque Revival building was constructed between 1893 and 1898 and is 30 metres (98 ft) wide by 190 metres (620 ft) long. The domes were built by Ritchie Brothers a steel and metal company that also built trains, trams and farm equipment. The building fills a city block bounded by George, Market, York and Druitt Streets. Designed as a marketplace, it was used for a variety of other purposes, underwent remodelling and suffered decay until its restoration and return to its original use in the late twentieth century.”
