Sydney University

My mum and I went on a trip to Sydney Uni 3 days ago now (the 2 of Jan). The internet wasn't working well so I couldn't post this before, but anyway, it might sound weird, but I just wanted to check out the buildings, and as I took 30-40 odd pictures, I thought I'd share a few with you, my readers. =)
The main quad was the coolest bit. Reminiscent of Hogwarts....

the huge sandstone buildings had way to much detail that wasn't useful, but was way cool:

And included freaky animals I'd never seen anywhere before....

And then there was the Physics building, which had the names of famous Physicists carved along the front of it (e.g. Archimedes, Copernicus, Galileo, Newton, Faraday and Becquerel). Itw as also one of the nicest buildings there (not that hard to do, but it was a beautiful early 20th centruy building):

In fact, the physics was recognised to be so important that a road was named after it:

And that was my trip to the Uni in a nutshell.
