World-class success

The Sydney Harbour Bridge was officially opened on 19 March 1932. At the time it was the largest, though not quite the longest, steel arch bridge in the world. The bridge was a source of pride for Sydneysiders and many other Australians who saw it as a symbol of Australia's ability to achieve world-class success.
