Sydney Opera House
Last Updated: 23rd May 2013
Although only having been open since 1973, it is not only a symbol of it’s home city of Sydney, but is also representative of Australia.
The Opera House is situated on the edge of the Sydney Harbour and the idea to build an opera house was hatched in the 1950’s. The New South Wales Government ran a competition and the now famous ‘sails’ were chosen as the winner. With a design that was beyond the capabilities of engineering of the time and a overly blown out budget, it’s a miracle the building was ever completed.
Home not only to Operas and concerts, the many rooms of this magnificent structure play host to over 3000 events every year.
The Opera Bar, along the edge of the Harbour underneath the Opera House is a simply sensational and unforgettable place to enjoy a drink admire the Bridge and watch the sun go down.

I heard the Sydney Opera House had some financial problems and they almost had to close the place down, because they couldn’t restore the place in a short time, but luckily they managed to solve the issues and find affordable ergonomic office furniture at McCormickOfficeFurniture.com. Good for them!
