Although the area is very touristy and it's probably the most Photographed building in Sydney, it's a must see! Suggest having dinner in the restaurant inside and/or an afternoon coffee.

As a local resident of Sydney, the opera house was never much of an interest to me since I drive past it daily on the way to work. If you are into operas and musicals, then you may wish to attend the shows available. For...More

When visiting Sydney we stopped by the opera house to see if we could get tickets to a show. Everything was pretty much sold out with only individual seats available and other high end expensive seats. If you plan to see a show here be...More

Just go there, take some pictures, and cross it off the list! It's an impressive building. Sundays are very busy.

参加团还不如买票去看一场演出。导游讲的在网上都有。没有想象的好。do not buy the ticket including meal as this is more expensive than buying the food separately.

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

Hi, I booked on the Opera House website 3 tickets for an orchestra. I took the refund insurance. Is it possible to get a refund on one ticket and use the others? There is no contract/information on the website about the refund criteria, who to call, and how to claim it. Cheers, Audrey

There are tours arranged for people with mobility issues - just ask the venue
Should we do the Sydney Opera house tour or the Backstage Tour? We are a family of four with kids ages 10 and 7. Thanks!

I have done the back stage tour at Lincoln Center in New York, but not the Sydney Opera House. The backstage tour can be more fascinating that the tour. The tour at the Sydney Opera house is about its history, the architect... More
