Sydney Harbour - Bridge Stairs - South East
The panoramic view form the penultimate rise on the south-eastern side of the Sydney Harbour Bridge - or the coathanger as this structure is also affectionately known. From this vantage point you can see the sails of the Sydney opera house poking up from behind a large ocean liner. The 1970's 'brutalist' housing development the Sirus building, and the flags flying from the top of the bridges arch - though not much of the superstructure itself! I love the approaches and the piers all of which are designed in an Art Deco style - well at least that is my take on the design of this bridge opened in 1932.

More About Australia

There are no kangaroos in Austria. We're talking about Australia, the world's smallest continent. That being cleared up, let's dive right in! Australia is a sovereign state under the Commonwealth of Nations, which is in turn overseen by Queen Elizabeth the Second, by the Grace of God, Queen of Australia and Her other Realms and Territories, Head of the Commonwealth. The continent was first sighted and charted by the Dutch in 1606. Captain James Cook of Britain came along in the next century to claim it for Britain and name it "New South Wales." Shortly thereafter it was declared to be a penal colony full of nothing but criminals and convicts, giving it the crap reputation you may have heard at your last cocktail party. This rumor ignores 40,000 years of pre-European human history, especially the Aboriginal concept of Dreamtime, an interesting explanation of physical and spiritual reality. The two biggest cities in Australia are Sydney and Melbourne. Sydney is more for business, Melbourne for arts. But that's painting in very broad strokes. Take a whirl around the panoramas to see for yourself! Text by Steve Smith.
