Sydney Opera House, Bennelong

 

This is one of the sails of the Sydney Opera House, which stands at the end of Bennelong Point, on the eastern side of Sydney Cove. The point was named after Bennelong, a senior man of the Eora, an Aboriginal Australian people of the Port Jackson area. He served as an interlocutor between the Eora and the British, in the colony of New South Wales. Bennelong Point was originally a small tidal island known as Bennelong Island at the end of a peninsula. From 1818 to 1821, the tidal area was filled with rocks excavated from the peninsula when suitable stone was cut for the construction of Fort Macquarie. This sail sits above the Bennelong restaurant which is near the forecourt of the Sydney Opera House.
