Tourism in Sydney, Australia forms an important part of the city's economy. Port Jackson is the natural harbour of Sydney. It is known for its spectacular natural beauty, and in particular as the location of the Sydney Opera House and Sydney Harbour Bridge. The Sydney Harbour Bridge is the main way of crossing Sydney Harbour carrying rail, vehicular, and pedestrian traffic between the Sydney central business district and the North Shore. The dramatic water vista of the bridge together with the nearby Sydney Opera House is an iconic image of both Sydney and Australia. The Sydney Opera House is one of the most distinctive and famous 20th century buildings, and one of the most renowned performing arts venues in the world. The area around the harbour foreshore contains pockets of bushland---which was once common around Sydney---containing a diverse range of native animals.
