Talking of Auatralia, Sydney Opera House would be the first thing in people’s mind. That’s why some people mistaken Sydney as the captial of Auatralia. Actually the right answer is Canberra. Sydney Opera House must be one of the most recognisable images of the modern world - up there with the Eiffel Tower and the Empire State Building - and one of the most photographed. Sydney Opera House is not only a recognisable any more, it has come to represent 'Australia'. If you come to Auatralia, you would not miss that.
