Sydney Harbour is a natural feature, and is therefore not man-made. It was not built by anyone, but was formed by natural processes thousands of years ago.If the questions refers to Sydney Harbour Bridge, on the other hand, construction of this man-made icon was begun in 1924 and completed in 1932.

How many times did the Japanese attack Australia?

Darwin was bombed by the Japanese a total of sixty times between 19 February 1942 and 12 November 1943. The Western Australian towns of Broome and Wyndham were bombed on 3 March 1942. Over 100 people were believed to have been killed in the attack, but because Broome port was crowded with Dutch refugees fleeing the Japanese invasion of the Netherlands East Indies, exact figures are unknown. Japanese midget submarines entered Sydney Harbour on 31 May 1942. Each launched a midget submarine, hoping to sink an American heavy cruiser, the USS Chicago, which was anchored in the harbour. Nine days later, the submarine believed to be the mother ship fired at the Sydney Harbour Bridge for 4 minutes. Every shot landed well short of its target.

Why was Canberra not built on the coast?

Australia's two largest cities, Sydney and Melbourne, had been rivals since before the goldrush days. It was therefore decided that the nation's capital should be situated between the two cities. A location was chosen which was 248km from Sydney and 483km from Melbourne. It was logical to build the city inland (in an area that had already been partially established), so that it would be directly along the route between Australia's two largest cities. To build Canberra on the coast would have meant businessmen, politicians, diplomats and others wishing to travel between Sydney and Melbourne would, in effect, have to go hundreds of kilometres out of their way in order to travel via the Capital.
