Sydney Opera House, NSW
Sydney´s Opera House, described by former Prime Minister, Paul Keating as “more art than architecture”, is one of the world´s most distinctive buildings. With its “timely, earthy and utopian” design, the Opera House is an attraction for both patrons of the arts as well as those whose pastimes are more mundane. The “sails” of the opera house are symbolic of the yachts that are ubiquitous in Sydney Harbour itself.
A massive sandstone rock formation in Australia´s outback, Uluru is one of the most sacred Aboriginal sites in Australia. The majesty and sense of otherworldliness of Uluru is a huge attraction for photographers searching to capture the beauty of this monolithic structure which is poised mysteriously against the horizon.
