You can't help but see it, and that's no bad thing, because it's beautiful.
Sydney Harbour Bridge, Sydney NSW, Australia

NileGuide Expert tip:
Head up one of the pylons for a (free) spectacular harbour view.
Building the Harbour Bridge was a big deal back in the 20s and 30s, when it was being planned - half of Sydney's oldest and most historic area, the Rocks, had to be bulldozed, and that was just a start. Sydney needed its bridge: up til then it had gotten by with the dozens of ferries to-ing and fro-ing from the populous northside over to Sydney proper. And what a bridge it got, the spectacular 'Coat Hanger' (as the locals know it), as seen on a billion postcards.
