Sydney Opera House
Sydney is recognizable through its Opera House. Therefor, a visit here is obligatory. Listed in UNESCO's World Heritage Center List, this magnanimous structure is a gem in the Sydney sky. Built in 1973, it is well known for its architecture and design. Standing shaped like white sails on the Sydney harbor, the Danish Architect won many accolades for this structure. It marked the start of the Modern era for Sydney after its colonial rule.
Sydney Harbour Bridge
The other iconic attraction of Sydney is the Sydney Harbour Bridge with its massive arc-like structure which makes it the world's largest steel arc bridge. 'Bridge Climb' organizes different kinds of climb on the arc structure of the bridge based on different price packages. If you have a few hundred dollars to spend in your budget, it is a lifetime moment to view the whole of Sydney from top of the bridge. You can also walk on the bridge through the pedestrian path paved along one side of the bridge which also gives your great views of Opera House and Sydney harbour.

Though Canberra is the capital of Australia, thanks to the cricket craze, Sydney, Melbourne and Perth come to mind immediately with the mention of the name Australia.Canberra has a number of places to visit like the Parliament House, Australian War Memorial, Telstra Tower, Floriade, Questacon, Lake Burley Griffin (By the Way, Walter Burley Griffin was the architect of Canberra City, and its after him, the lake has been named), and the Australian Royal Mint.
Manly is another beautiful suburb of Sydney connected by ferry. We took a slow ferry around 5 p.m just to ensure we will make the return tour after sunset. It gives you the opportunity to see the harbor in light and dark. I must say the Manly beach is prettier and more serene than Bondi. From Manly we made a short walking tour to Shelly beach followed by Ben & Jerry's ice cream (yes, the name made famous by Salaam Namaste. The scene right before the song Paune 12 baje)The night view from ferry is out of the world with seagulls following the ferry to the wharf.
