Car Rental Touring Information
places to take a look at in your rental car is the beautiful
sweeping sails of the Sydney
Opera House and the arch of the Sydney Harbour Bridge.
Standing sentinel at the eastern end of Circular Quay, the
Opera House is a breathtaking spectacle with its million white
tiles glinting in the sun and surrounded by the blue of the
harbour. Its beauty belies its rather traumatic gestation
period. The building was completed in 1973, but only after
its Danish architect Jmrn Utzon resigned in protest because
of economically driven changes to his plans for the building’s
interior. Nevertheless, the Opera House is regarded as a stunning
masterpiece and one of the great buildings of the 20th century.
A guided tour of the building and its theatres is highly recommended.
Ask our Sydney car rental agents about any touring advise
you may need.
Bridge, opened in 1932, was designed by the engineer John
Bradfield and is the second longest single span bridge in
the world to drive your rental car over. (New York’s
Bayonne Bridge wins by a matter of centimetres.) Its broad
deck is 134 metres above the water and carries 8 lanes for
traffic, a double-track railway, a cycle lane and a pedestrian
walkway offering stunning views. Park your Sydney rental car
and take the pedestrian access which is via Cumberland Street
in The Rocks. The southeastern Pylon Lookout contains the
Harbour Bridge Exhibition featuring old photographs of this
grand Sydney icon. It also offers magnificent harbour views
from its viewing platform. The more adventurous can join a
guided three-hour climb to the very top of the bridge. A headset
links you to your guide and you wear a safety harness. No
matter what your preferred attraction, a cheap Sydney car
rental deal will probably prove essential to see every thing
you need to see.
