Over the past couple of weeks we have gone down to see the Sydney Harbour and bridge. This is the most famous part of the city and also includes the Sydney Opera House. Taking the train to Circular Quay (pronounced “key”) you can see the harbour quite well right from the train platform. The Bridge spans the harbor linking the north and south sides of the harbor. Most of the really tall buildings are on the south side of the harbour as is the opera house. Near the base of the bridge is an area called the Rocks which is where the original settlement took place in Australia. This is not the same spot where Captain Cook first landed but it is where the penal colony was established.
