How faaabulous! Oooh tough question about favourite building! I like the old banks in the middle of the city :)

J'adore State theatre... Here in the 'Berra' (Canberra) our architecture is a smidge ordinary. Boxy and no real theme! Sydney is magical with it's heritage and old world feel. Love the pics! :)


Thank you for your kind comments, Anna! The State Theatre is quite stunning indeed ;-)

And thank you Lorraine! These old banks are really gorgeous - which reminds me of this mazing dinner you went to one day, sitting next to Sean Connelly from Astral, in an old vault. It was stunning.

What a great round up of buildings you wouldn't at first glance think of going to visit behind the scenes Myriam!

I went to look around the YHA in the Rocks when I was down in Sydney last month and was fascinated how the whole building is up on pillars about a metre off the ground (that were all hand dug with an archeologist present) to leave this historical site unscathed by todays development


Thank you Linda!! Isn't that site fascinating? It's really great that they decided to build the YHA in a way that would preserve and showcase all these unique architectural findings...

These banks are breathtaking old - that reminds me of this mazing went to dinner one day, sitting next to Sean Connelly of Astral, in the previous time. E 'was great.
