I’m too stupid to think that it was built in 80’s. From my recent visit, i had just learnt that it was formally opened at 20th October 1973 and the construction work begin in year 1958.
Sydney Opera House is beautiful from far and near. It is also gorgeous inside and out. It is not only Sydney icon, it actually an Australia icon. Best view is to visit during the sunset hours. Beautiful open area for walk and also nice view for photos which has bridge on the background or in front of the Opera house.
Take a closer look at the Opera House roof. It is actually built up by more than 1 million roof tiles covering approximately 1.62 hectares sitting over the structure. They were made in Sweden. It is the reason why the original cost estimate to build Sydney Opera House was $7 million and the final paid up was $102 million. (ps: the total size of Opera House could hosts up to seven A380s sit wing-to-wing on the site)
There are plenty of restaurant at the lower concourse level of Sydney Opera House, such as Portside Sydney Opera House, Opera Kitchen and etc. It is the place that you could take a short rest before move to next destination.
We found a Campos coffee store here. We ordered cappuccino and my son went for his babyccino.
