Today’s commemorative ‘Google Doodle’, the homepage image with which Google celebrates IMPORTANT STUFF, is an artful reminder that the Sydney Harbour Bridge officially opened 80 years ago. It also reminds us that there have been some creative renderings of the Google logo over the years including shout outs to the 2000 Sydney Olympics (one of the first Aussie Google Doodles ever), the Melbourne Cup, Anzac Day and the 50th anniversary of the Parkes Observatory. Take the internet’s laziest intro to Australian Studies and check out our favourite Google Doodles of the last decade below…
