Sydney Opera House has been an iconic and major Australian landmark for over 50 years.

Sydney Opera House first opened in 1973 as a musical facility and the home to symphony orchestra and other music groups. Not long later the Opera House became Australia’s most iconic performing arts venue and one of the most famous buildings in the world.
