Sydney open

Sydney Open is presented by Sydney Living Museums and allows Sydneysiders and visitors to see 40 different buildings in the CBD of Sydney, over two days. Today (4/11/18) was the second and final day. Most of the open buildings would not otherwise be available for the public to inspect and enjoy.

The open buildings extend over a significant distance and it is not possible to see all 40 buildings in the 6 hour window period (10am-4pm). Difficult choices have to be made!

Of the buildings visited today by Sydney Nimble Tours the following were considered exceptional: 50 Martin Place; Baker McKenzie premises at Barangaroo (levels 44-46) and the AMP Building at Circular Quay.

Level 46 of Baker McKenzie’s premises provided outstanding views of Sydney, particularly to the south, west and north. Macquarie Bank is located at 50 Martin Place and provided access to wonderful art deco architecture on the ground floor whilst the rooftop area displayed sophisticated Australian artwork, super stylish boardroom and unique views of Martin Place.

The AMP Building has a box seat view of the Sydney Harbour Bridge, Sydney Opera House and Sydney Royal Botanical Gardens. The first photograph below was taken from the AMP Building; second and third photos are of 50 Martin Place foyer, fourth photo is Sydney Tower through the eye of a silver doughnut and the final photograph shows the turbulence created by a turning catamaran on Sydney Harbour.
