Stars are long-changing, wisdom is eternal, and the University of Sydney with a baby card is the University of Sydney University of Sydney is Australia's oldest university. It is also the premier academic hall in the Southern Hemisphere and a world-famous institution of higher learning. The University of Sydney has cultivated history. A series of important figures, alumni, starlight, including 7 Nobel Prize or Crawford Award winners, eight Australian Prime Ministers, 23 Supreme Court judges, a number of bank presidents, etc. . It is very different from many universities in China. The University of Sydney is open-ended. There is no traditional wall. When you walk into the campus, you can see the open green fields, the green grass and the moss on the stone bench. Among the towering ancient trees is a beautiful building with different styles, like a secret garden sealed by time. When the classical main building stands in front of you, many fans can't help but think of Harry's description of Hogwarts in the book: "A huge building with many turrets and towers." The castle is located between two mountains, and the glass of the window shines under the stars. "Well, it is almost exactly the same as Harry Potter's "Hogwarts School of Magic." Gothic architectural appearance, graceful arcade stairs, is a scene reappearance in the book. For this reason, many fans and tour groups also come to the University of Sydney to visit the card. In fact, the University of Sydney is not a film Harry Potter. Special location, but the precipitation of history and time makes this century-old school have real magic

In addition to surfing, I also launched an untouchable trip to Australia. The first stop of the journey is the famous harbour city, colorful Sydney! As Australia's iconic city, Sydney's fascinating coastal scenery and unique cuisine attract visitors from all over the world. However, today I will take you to experience Sydney outside the travel guide. Follow me to see what other hidden menus in Sydney~ Darling Harbour/Rock Zone Rock Zone is different from other Sydney suburbs. It is a mix of old and new Sydney elements. The elegant atmosphere of the Sydney Harbour blends. Featuring pebble alleys and historic verandas, there are also trendy bars and contemporary art galleries. From the Harbour Bridge, not far from the historic rocky area. There are densely populated cafes, bars and elegant art galleries in the cobbled alleys. Walking here, many locals sit diagonally in the sun, slowly enjoying their favorite Brunch, or pushing the door into the art gallery to see the paintings of love. It's a pity that we are not in the rocky area on the weekends, or we can visit the famous "rocky weekend market". I heard that in this literary weekend market, I can find vinyl records. Manli Khao Sok has Australia's unique boardwalk. Here you'll find shopping malls, cafes and galleries where you can experience Australian culture and buy bizarre tourist souvenirs! Australians really like to sunbathe, and on the white sand beaches, local people can spread the big words to enjoy the sun. At Manly Beach you will experience the true surfing culture of Australia. In addition, at sunset, you can enjoy the beautiful scenery of the harbour at Manly Beach: the beautiful seaside, there are all kinds of yachts on the sea, the sun sets, and the most beautiful picture is unfolded in front of you. You can also choose to take the ferry, walk the deck and enjoy the unique view of Sydney Harbour from another angle. Saint Mary's Cathedral The unique "gothic" St. Mary's Cathedral in the city centre. Unrelated to the faith, attracted by the magnificent spires, want to go in and see. When I went, I met the mass. The believers were praying. The sun was scattered on the chair through the huge stained glass, and the face of the believers was calm and solemn. The side windows are fascinatingly painted, colorful, and each has a biblical story. The vivid and sacred atmosphere allows everyone who comes in to take the initiative to slow down, hold their breath, and feel quietly. Time is soft here and my heart is calm. Sydney Royal Botanic Gardens Sydney Park in Sydney, a whole piece of lawn, and lots of plants I can't name. Keke and I came to the early morning and watched the Sydney Opera House. We rushed to the salty sea breeze. We haven't been so relaxed for a long time. We simply sat cross-legged on the lawn and observed the crowd around us. We found that Australians really like to bask in the sun, and the benches everywhere are lying downside down with locals with large characters.

The most beautiful shopping mall in the world, integrating retro and modern landmarks, don't miss Sydney travel "buy and buy" is a very happy part of the trip, many small partners are listed before the trip Shopping list, there are also small partners who are temporarily eager to buy and buy. In short, no matter what the situation, most of them will not return empty-handed. If you are traveling to Sydney in the Southern Hemisphere, what are the recommended shopping centers? The answer is the Queen Victoria Building, known as the world's most beautiful mall. The most popular shopping experience in the Southern Hemisphere The Queen Victoria Building was built in 1898 and is a typical Victorian Romance Revival building. It perfectly blends the dual elements of retro and modern, and has become "the most beautiful shopping center in the world". The Queen Victoria Building is a very large one, occupying a block of street, surrounded by George Street, Market Street, York Street and Druitt Street. Enter the building and experience the most magnificent shopping mall in the Southern Hemisphere. has a large collection of designer fashion items, high-end brands, jewellery and cafes. The top floor of the building is completely pure art and antiques. There are some unique historical relics collections, free to watch, and friends who like to study history should not miss it. The dazzling array of goods is fascinating, and the beautiful oil paintings on the walls of the stairs and corridors make people feel like they are in the museum. In fact, the air conditioning is strong here, and every summer is an ideal summer resort for the city center. Exquisite arches, gorgeous glass domes and well-defined floor tiles make it a special experience for customers to shop in this rich classic style building. Our children are very interested in the Thomas train, so the goal is the toy store on the third floor. Through the transparent window outside, you can see the various small train models displayed inside, tunnels, iron bridges, and completely a train kingdom. This antique model can be found in the store, many of which have never been seen before, completely refreshing the horizon. The toy store is very large, there are many kinds of goods, there is a children's play area next to it, and finally pick a few Thomas trains that the baby likes, and complete the shopping action.
