    4.5 out of 5 stars

    Sydney Things to Do

    We were on a cruise circumnavigating Australia which embarked from Sydney Harbour, next to the Opera House. The sailaway was great fun because of the unique views of the Opera House from the water. While the lighting was soft, we had a view of the use of plates and triangular shapes which created the architectural wonder.

    Perth Things to Do

    I found Perth has quite an array of different architecture! I saw quite a few Art Deco buildings that are now on the State Heritage list. One I liked, was the Carlton Hotel at 248 Hay Street, not the original Hotel, but a newer version completed in 1928 in a horseshoe shape by prominent Perth architects, Eales and Cohen. At the time, this Hotel...
