The Sydney Opera House… up close and personal.

In January of 2010 I was privileged to make a pilgrimage to Australia. I spent a week in the breathtaking Wollumbin crater – indescribable, raw beauty – and another two weeks puttering around New South Wales and Queensland. I’ve posted about the Dish, the Solar System Drive, and the Warrumbungle – but here are a few photos from Sydney which I found of interest.

Go ahead, try to tell me Vedek Winn wasn’t an Aussie…

Seriously, though – It’s an amazing complex. If I had as much money as Bill Gates, I might just be able to afford a show there.

  1. It’s a beautiful building. The day I spent there (taking lots and lots of photos), I would happily have started the tour over again, immediately. One tour wasn’t enough to take it all in! And then eating lunch in the little restaurant, beneath the Opera House, with a view of the bridge! Wonderful.

    Glad you were able to see and enjoy it!
