This is the oldest and most historic area of Sydney. Named after its rough terrain, it survived for nearly two centuries as Sydney’s main working class area. Amongst the warren of lanes and pebbled streets there is plenty to see and do, including Susannah Place, The Garrison Gallery, The Military Museum, and Cadman’s Cottage. The Museum of Contemporary Art and the S H Erwin Gallery and the nearby Sydney Observatory offer something a little more "contemporary". If you have had enough history, there is always an endless array of restaurants, pubs, shops and a crafty weekend market.
SYDNEY OPERA HOUSE
Designed by Danish architect Jorn Utzon and covered in over one million white granite tiles imported from Sweden, the sail-like roofed house was completed in 1973, fourteen years in the building and A$95 million over budget. An argument made Utzon resign in the late 1960s, but his original design ideas are now at last being implemented. A centre for the Arts, the Sydney Opera House is home to Opera Australia, the Sydney Symphony Orchestra, and the Sydney Theatre Company and is now one of the most famous buildings in the world.
Now that entry to Luna Park is free, come on down and have a wander around one of Sydney's favourite icons. Soak up the atmosphere and the fantastic views while the kids enjoy the rides and games, or have a go yourself and relive your childhood. Step back in time at Coney Island, test your driving skills on the Dodgem cars, see what's happening in The Big Top or just sit back on the Ferris Wheel and make the most of the bird's eye view.
