Darling Harbour, Sydney Exhibition Centre

The Sydney Exhibition Centre is located at Darling Harbour. It was officially opened in 1988 and extended for the 2000 Summer Olympics. The mosaic features the emblem of New South Wales and was created for the state's bicentenary in 1988. It is located between Exhibition Hall 1 and the Chinese Gardens. The flags flown here are two Australian flags, two New South Wales flags, the Aboriginal flag and the Torres Strait Islander flag. The building will soon be demolished as part of a redevelopment.

  2. The building will be demolished for a redevelopment project? Still looks well-built -for me.

  3. You did well to capture this shot sans people Jim. I would have thought it was always busy.

  4. An impressive-looking building - why demolish it? (They leave delapidated ones still standing here in parts of Europe!)

  6. Hi Jim,

    What a shame that this beautiful building will soon be demolished. I'm not sure that's progress.

    I look forward to reading your comment on my blog.
    Happy Blue Monday!

  9. I haven't seen this building before without the sails. It seems like a shame to demolish it. I've never seen it up close.

  10. Seems odd to demolish such a nice building. I guess that's the way progress goes. Nice shot.
