A worldwide famous place. It has a unique design that goes with the area. It has a great location at Bennelong point. You have to take a photo there

Such a lovely spot. Wow very busy. Nice to look back over the lovely City. It is clean open and great photo snap opportunities. Gulls are a bit of a nuisance.

Looks like the cafes own the whole place in front of them. That is one of the best place to take selfie and capture harbour bridge. But cafe owners have their tables and chairs occupying the whole space. I thought it’s the tax payers property...More

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

The display is on the eastern side of the Bennelong sail at sunset and at 7pm, so simply walk to the top of the big steps outside at the front.

For both Rigoletto and Aida, she will be allowed to go. The only conditions are that she be accompanied by an adult (being under 15) and have her own ticket.
