I realised I have nothing about Australia on this blog – how very unpatriotic of me. This is the Sydney Harbour Bridge with the Sydney Opera House in the background – probably two of the most recognisable sights in the country.

Interesting facts I found on the interweb:

  • It took seven years to build the model of the opera house but 17 years to actually complete the actual building. That’s a long time!
  • The cost to construct the Opera House was originally estimated at $7 million, but it actually ended up costing $102 million.
