Australia is such a 'new' country in a European sense, we have in a sense 'missed out' on a lot of European history and culture. While we are still rich with our native heritage, sometimes I wish we could see some incredible sculptures and pieces of architecture like that you see in place like Vienna, and other parts of Europe. This was certainly one thing that awestruck me about Vienna. Every turn, every corner, ever building had something to say architecturally. You could spend hours looking up and drinking in the centuries of design and innovation ~ all within a radius of one city block.
