Hi, I’m glad to greet you, I’m Yael Yancelson and today we’re going to a destination that I was very excited to meet, because of its impressive architecture and unique landscapes, we flew quickly with the power of imagination and the senses to Sydney Australia, so breathe, close your eyes if possible and you are not doing anything else, give me your hand and let yourself be guided, we begin!
Sydney is the best-known city in Australia although it is not its capital. It is located on the shores of the Pacific and is known worldwide for its Opera, among other monuments.
This huge city hides many treasures, so come with me to discover them!
Modern, visually beautiful, very green, full of life and culture, and with an incomparable lifestyle, it is the capital of the state of New South Wales and is located in the lower right part of the Australian territory.
We arrive at the famous Coastal Walk so let’s walk from Bondi Beach and end up at Coogee Beach, passing several hidden beaches. The views are great! Don’t you believe it? If you like to run, this route is 5.5 km long, so it is a great option.
And from there we cannot miss the most emblematic place to see here in Sydney. Yes, the opera house has a long history behind its design, the structure began in 1956 when the New South Wales Government called for an open competition for the design of two performance halls: an opera house and a symphony concert hall. , which would position Sydney on the international music scene. Danish architect Jørn Utzon, unknown for his work at the time, managed to draw the attention of the jury. Construction of the Sydney Opera House began in March 1959. The project was built in three phases: the foundation and construction of the podium overlooking Sydney Harbour, the construction of the external shells, and the construction of the interior.
Because construction began abruptly without solving certain structural problems, the podium had to be modified and rebuilt after its completion in 1963 in order to support the weight of the massive concrete structures that rested on it. Utzon wanted the shells to represent the great sails of a ship, contrasting with the deep blue waters of the ocean on which they stood. To achieve this aesthetic, the shells were covered with more than a million ceramic tiles made in Sweden from clay and crushed stone. Along with laying the tiles, it took a total of eleven years to complete the iconic roof structure. On February 28, 1966, after a long dispute with the New South Wales Government, due to the rising costs of construction As the concrete shells moved toward completion, Utzon gave up on the project. It was then that the Australian government appointed three local architects, Peter Hall, DS Littlmore, and Lionel Todd, to complete the project. After the 2,194th segment of the shells was installed in 1967, the second stage of the project was finally completed. Three smaller theaters, a library, and a movie theater have also been added to the original design along with three restaurants, six bars, and sixty changing rooms. The building has a total of 1,000 rooms, which are accessed through an esplanade that surrounds the entire building and joins the five performance spaces.
The building was completed and inaugurated by Queen Elizabeth II in October 1973. What do you think? shocking right?
As always we like to visit places with small shops, bars, and restaurants, so let’s quickly stop by Darling Harbor in the center of the city to enjoy the views of the skyscrapers of the business area. At nightfall, the atmosphere is very lively and we can have a few drinks and then walk to the Harbor Bridge. This iron bridge is one of the most famous in the world, it connects the European neighborhood of The Rocks with North Sydney. Then we arrived at Newtown, which is an alternative suburb of those that personally fascinates me because it is full of bars, and good restaurants with a lot of atmospheres and look how spectacular graffiti is.
Did you know that Australia is one of the largest wine producers in the world? And well, it is worth going to the Hunter Valley, which is a wine region where we will visit some wineries and, of course, we will do a wine tasting. Cheers!!!!!
To finish this quick tour, how about we go to the Blue Mountains National Park which is famous for the rock formations known as Three Sisters, let’s go up its hiking trails and admire these impressive waterfalls while we see a beautiful sunset from the heights
