Sydney Harbor


Sydney Harbour is commonly referred to as the most beautiful natural harbor in the world.

The 240 kilometers of shoreline encompasses approximately 54 square kilometers of water, which translates to an enormous area for exploration and discovery.

The Sydney Harbour Bridge, also affectionately known as the 'Coathanger', was opened on March 19th 1932 by Premier Jack Lang, after six years of construction. Made of steel the bridge contains 6 million hand-driven rivets. The surface area that requires painting is equal to about the surface area of 60 sports fields. The Bridge has huge hinges to absorb the expansion caused by the hot Sydney sun. You will see them on either side of the bridge at the footings of the Pylons.
