Australia

by Atsushi
(Ibaraki)

I have not been to Australia. But I have a friend who goes abroad in Australia. I often heard about Australia. Then I learned that Australia has many World Heritage Sites. I was especially interested in the Sydney Opera House. And, I examined it.

The Sydney Opera House is one of the buildings built in the 20th century. The sail of the yacht and the intricate original design are well known all over the world as a symbol of the existence of Australia. It took 14 years for the building with a complex structure to be completed. 

The regularly scheduled performances have been held with the Sydney symphony orchestra as a stronghold of opera and ballet in Australia. About 3000 events a year are presented, and two million spectators visit every year. It is exactly the base of art in Australia.

Australia's seasons are famous as being the reverse of Japan. I have never been to the southern hemisphere, and I want to go Australia and the Sydney Opera House.

The Sydney Opera House
by: Gary Wolff

I agree, Atsushi, that the Sydney Opera House is an amazing architectural achievement.

And your comment about never visiting the Southern Hemisphere got me thinking. I don't think I've ever been there either.

But like you, someday I hope to visit Australia, and New Zealand, too !

Thanks for your nice story...
