They are the New Year's Ball, Sydney Harbour and the Sydney Bridge.The New Year's Ball is made from a lot of windmills,if it's windy then the windmills will revolve. The Island in the middle of Sydney Harbour was a prison ago,but now there is a restaurant. There is very beautiful.The Sydney Harbour Bridge is the world's largest(but not longest)steel arch bridge and in its beautiful harbour location,has become a renowned international symbol of Australia.

In the first picture we can see a big iron ball which has a lot of windmills stuck on it.This is a celebrating symbol for the New Year.It is called New Year's Ball which is hanging from Sydeny Harbour Bridge.
The second picture describes a part of Sydney Harbour.The sea is very blue.In the middle of the sea there is a grey island which is Fort Denison.About two hundred years ago it was a prison that imprisoned many criminals from England.But now it has become a resturant.Everyone could have dinner in it.
We can see a large iron bridge in the third picture.It is the famous Sydney Bridge.The Australia flags are hung on it.Everyday all kinds of people are walking on it.It is a beautiful scene.

The first picture shows the NEW YEAR's ball.But I really don't know: Why did people hang this ball? What is the meaning?

The second picture shows the SYDNEY HARBOUR.In the middle of the picture,there is a small island.In 30~40 year's of last two centuries,the prisoners who came from ENGLAND were kept in there.It was surrounded with water,the prisoners couldn't escape. But now a restaurant is in the island. I think it is very interesting,but I never got there before.

The last one is the SYDNEY HARBOUR BRIDGE. There are flags on the bridge.I visit the bridge at the second day after i arrived in Australia.It is an marked construction in Sydney,isn't it?

BALL. NEW YEAR'S BALL IS HANGING FROM SYDNEY HARBOUR BRIDGE.NEW YEAR'S BALL IS THE LOGO FOR THIS YEAR,LAST YEAR THE LOGO WAS A BIRD.EVERY YEAR THERE IS A DIFFRENCE LOGO.

PICTURE NUMBER TWO IS A SMALL ISLAND.THIS ISLAND IS LOCATED IN THE MIDDLE OF THE CITY AREA,BETWEN THE HARBOUR BRIDGE AND THE OPERA HOUSE. A LONG TIME GO THIS PLACE WAS A PRISON
NOW IT IS A RESTAURANT. I NEVER GO THERE BECAUSE IT'S TOO EXPENSIVE FOR ME AND TOO HARD TO GET HALAL FOOD.

PICURE NUMBER TREE IS SYDNEY HARBOUR BRIGE.A HARBOUR BRIDGE WELL KNOWN IN THE WORLD AND SOMETHING THE PEOPLE AUSTRALIA ARE PROUND OF. ON THE TOP OF THE HARBOUR BRIGE THER ARE TWO FLAGS.EVERY BODY CAN GO THERE BUT YOU HAVE TO PAY TO CLIMB THE BRIDGE OR TO GO UP THE PYLON.

The first picture is the big New Year's ball hanging from the Sydney Harbour Bridge.It is made of a lots of steel tubes. The steel tubes put together look like a rhomboid.There are plenty of windmills nailed on it.

The second picture is an island in the middle of the sea.There are lots of sailing boats and ships around the island. The sea appears beautiful deep blue.This island used to be a prison long time ago.

The third picture is Sydney Harbour Bridge. It is a famous landmark in Australia and also it's Sydney's greatest tourism icon. It links city and North Sydney traffic. Lots of tourists like climb it. It is a very exciting thing.Pepole tide the rope climb the ladders and arches over 1,500 metres high. It is venture across might be cost you $160 dollar. Maybe that will be experience you never forget.

The first picture is New Year's Ball,hanging from Sydney Harbour Bridge,there are many small windmills on the big ball. When the wind sways,the small windmills turn round,it means the people are good future in the new year.
The second picture is an small island in the middle of the sea,
some small boats are beside the island. It is in Sydney harbour, the name is Fort Denison.Two hundred years ago,the small island was a prison,the British sent prisoners there.But it is a restaurant now, if you go to there to have dinner, it maybe very expensive, because you have to get a water taxi.
The third picture is Sydney's bridge,. There are two Australian flags waving in the bridge.It is high and strong,it is made of iron,just like Australia spirit: strong. When you go to the Bridge you can climb it or take a lift to see the beautiful views, but you need to pay fees.

The first picture is the New Year's Ball hanging from Sdyney Harbour Bridge.There are many windmills on it.

The second one is the view of Sydney Harbour.There is an island in the middle named Fort Denision.Now it is a restaurant, but two hundred years ago it was a prison.The most famous building in the world --the Opera House-- is standing beside the Sdyney Harbour.

The third one is a part of Sdyney Harbour Bridge.Two Australian flags are flying in the wind .A lot of people are climbing the bridge.It is difficult to climb the bridge, but when you reach the top of it, you will become very happy, because you can see all of the view of Sdyney Harbour.It is very beautiful.
