The Sydney Harbour Bridge is one of the most memorable landmarks in the city and is known locally as 'The Old Coathanger'. Completed in 1932, this structure is one of the modern wonders of the world, but before the bridge was built the only way to cross Sydney Harbour was by ferry or to take a road journey around the harbour, which was approximately 12 miles / 20 km.
