Every time we take overseas visitors to Sydney, the Opera House is our first stop. The views of the city, Harbour Bridge and the harbour itself, are a picture postcard moment at every time.

A must see tourist spot if you're visiting Sydney. Try and go to one of the shows in the opera house if you can as you get to see the architecture from within the building too. We watched an aboriginal contemporary dance show called Bennelong....More

The building itself is really impressive, no matter how many pictures you have seen of it, to see it in person is remarkable. The guided tour very good. You get to see a number of different performance theatres, rehearsal spaces and backstage areas.

The Opera House is the landmark of Sydney, it is an architectural wonder. But, do NOT join the guided tour. Admission costs $37 each, the guide walked us into the building to have one picture taken, then watch a historical video on the architect Utzon,...More

Definitely a must visit for tourist. Beautiful in and out, I'm amazed with the view inside the opera house and enjoy my walk outside the area. Worth the visit.

Highly recommend visiting here & the harbour. Walk here through the botanical gardens & along the harbor walkway then have a few drinks at the bar underneath the opera house.

Lucky to see the Sydney opera house from both the Park Hyatt room we stayed in and from the top of the Sydney Harbour Bridge Climb experience - amazing treasure. Take the tour and visit the gift shop to learn about its construction.

Central Business District
The Sydney Central Business District is abuzz with
energy. Power brokers run to and from high rise
buildings and after-work drink places, high-end
shoppers tour venues like the QVB, and fine diners
frequent the many celebrity chef restaurants. For a
dose of culture, walk to the NSW Art Gallery, or visit
the Sydney Museum. To escape the hustle and bustle,
reconnect with nature at the Sydney Botanical Gardens
