Australia's wine industry dates back to the first European settlement
in 1788. The first commercial wine producers were pastoralists John
and Elizabeth Macarthur producing 90,000 liters vintage in 1827
from their Sydney farm.
Australian Aborigines occupied this continent long before the ancient
civilizations in the Middle East, Europe, and the Americas flourished,
which is more than 50,000 years before European navigators visited
the shores of "The Great South Land".
For centuries people from diverse social standards have been captivated
by the classic and emotional performing art, opera. Australia was
never left behind when it comes to art. The Sydney Opera House was
already proposed in 1947 and the official design and architecture
was submitted in 1957.
