Sydney is the state capital of New South Wales. Probably the largest draw to the city for architects is the Sydney Opera House, though the Harbour Bridge is also a world-famous structure. Major architects with buildings in the city include Jorn Utzon and Norman Foster. Frank Gehry and OMA have made separate major designs in the city.

Australasian Architectural Walking Tours

Australasian Architectural Tours are able to focus on contemporary or traditional buildings in the city, or both. The Architecture Tour is usually a general introduction to the city’s highlights – the main, well known buildings – but it can be structured around your group’s specific architectural interests. We can also arrange a bus tour for some Australasian cities. Your walking tour can be tailored to suit you, for example a group of architects with an interest in new residential buildings could be assisted in preparing an itinerary ahead of their visit.

The region of Oceania, comprises Australia, New Zealand, neighbouring islands in the Pacific Ocean and, sometimes, the island of New Guinea (which is usually considered to be part of Melanesia). Charles de Brosses coined the term (as French Australasie) in Histoire des navigations aux terres australes[1] (1756). He derived it from the Latin for “south of Asia” and differentiated the area from Polynesia (to the east) and the southeast Pacific (Magellanica).
