  2. I had quite a bit to do with the 1956 Olympic Games in Melbourne and loved every moment of it. Sydney must have also grown and blossomed during the 2000 Games.

    1. During the Olympics it was used for gymnastics, including trampoline. Since then it has hosted basketball, netball and tennis.
      It's mostly used for concerts and award shows these days.

  6. We most likely seen the inside while watching the Olympics on TV. Glad it's getting lots of usage. Thanks for sharing at Pictorial Tuesday.

  9. It is surprisingly low to the ground...are there several levels below ground?

    1. Stanley, I'm not sure if it's partly built below ground but its very wide and with the masts on top, perhaps the angle of the photo is deceiving.

  10. Interesting architecture. It's great when towns and cities have places for public events. Our recreation complex is way smaller, but there is always something happening there for the community. - Margy

  11. A beautiful sky, Jim, but I'm of two minds about the architecture.
    Striking, for sure.
    Attractive as in "come see me" — I'm not so sure.
