Rather than taking a tour of the Opera House, we chose to go to Great Opera Hits offered on Sundays at 5PM. It was a great way to see and experience the venue with a fun, casual performance that was even fun for non-opera fans.

All my life I though this place was small. How wrong I was! It is impressive both in design and size. This one you will not miss.

Excellent tour with lots of information given by Chris our guide. We would not have learnt as much doing our own thing. Would recommend booking online to miss some queuing and go at the time you want.

Words cannot truly reflect how magnificent the Sydney Opera House actually is. As a building and considering its design, it is really a one off. However, as a venue for entertaining it is probably second to none. Certainly look at the building from the land...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
