Two hours from Sydney are the incredible natural landscapes of the Blue Mountains region, one of the places to see in Australia absolutely essential. The mountains and forests of the Blue Mountains were inhabited from time immemorial until the arrival of European colonization. Europeans considered this area impenetrable and therefore created prisons in the environment with the idea of deterring prisoners from escaping. The curious thing about the story is that an ex-convict who was released in the forest was the first person, who is recorded, who managed to cross the Blue Mountains. In fact, he lived with Aboriginal tribes for a while and when he returned to Sydney, he served as an intermediary between the settlers and the local tribes.
Sydney Opera House
When we think of Australia, one of the main images that come to mind is the famous Sydney Opera House, an imposing building designed by the Danish architect Jørn Utzon. Today it is the main hall in the country for concerts, theater, opera and many other shows. The radically innovative style of this building has made it one of the most distinctive buildings of the 20th century and has led it to be considered a World Heritage Site. For all these reasons, it is something to see in Australia that should not be missing from your list.
