Sydney, Autralia

Sydney, Australia
By: Mikyla 

Have you ever imagined what it was like to dress up and go to the opera or what an emu tastes like? Have you ever thought of trying crocodile or wanted to swim with the playful dolphins? Have you ever wanted to fly freely over the smooth crystal waters like a bird? If you said yes to any of these questions then Sydney, Australia is the place for you.

The Sydney Opera House with its remarkable sail like roofs was built mostly by Danish architect, Jørn Utzon in 1959. It stands on Bennelong Point, and has become a very popular tourist attraction worldwide. The halls provide facilities for symphony concerts, operas, dramas, ballet, motion pictures, solo recitals, exhibitions, and conventions. Another great spot to visit is the Sydney Harbor Bridge. The Sydney Harbor Bridge is a steel arch bridge across Sydney Harbor that carries rail, vehicle, bicycle, and pedestrian traffic between the Sydney central business district and the North Shore.  It’s also one of the most known photographed landmarks in Australia. The Royal Botanic Garden, is a place of natural beauty, where people come for peace, relaxation, education, and to learn more about plants and horticulture. It’s an amazing place to take beautiful photos.

The helicopter tours are an amazing way to take in all of Sydney in a short amount of time. There are multiple to choose from and they all take you over amazing places like the simple beaches. There are many beautiful wildlife tours were you can see several animals like a Giant Kangaroo or a koala bear. One of my personal favorites would be to go down to the sandy beaches with the flowing, peaceful waves, and swim with the playful sea animals.

Have you ever wanted to try emu, well in Sydney its a very common delicacy to eat. Surprisingly it emu tastes more like a tender piece of beef jerky. Unlike crocodile which tastes a lot like chicken because of the white muscles in both of there bodies. Lamingtons are little sponge cakes coated in chocolate and grated coconut. A traditional Australian treat that appeals to most people. It is also considered Australia's national cake. Lamingtons take a long time to cook though. Almost one day! Altogether there are so many exotic yet delicious foods in Australia. It would be hard to try them all in one day.

Have you ever imagined a fun day at a beach then dressing up to go to the opera or to see a drama, and after a long day siting down to a delicious yet simple meal of crocodile and emu. For all these reasons I believe that Sydney, Australia is an amazing vocation spot.
