"Right of passage" Harbour Bridge Tip by hennanights

Harbour Bridge, Sydney: 208 reviews and 336 photos


Sydney harbour bridge is the biggest and longest arch bridge in the world. To make way for this huge bridge the government forced those living on the site from their homes, 800 in total. These poor families received no compensation. But on a happier note the bridge did create work for a people in recession and has stood the test of time. 60 years later it is still a impressive symbol of the growing achievements of a blossoming country.
