Sydney Opera House is synonymous with Sydney. If you see Opera House, you can really conclude you are in Sydney. The architectural design is splendid and marvelous. With its unique canopy-like roof and its color stand out from the waters & the harbor. The attraction...More

I have been to the Sydney Opera House before but this was the first time we took the 1 hour guided tour and it was totally worth it. The tour is very informative and lets you have a better understanding of the building and it's...More

Make sure to see the Badu Gili Light Show on Sunday evenings. It's a beautiful series of images projected onto the small sail of the Opera House. The first show commences at approximately sunset, with a second show at 7pm. Have your camera ready!

My family and I did the Walking Tour (as a package deal with iVenture) and we loved it! There was not too much walking involved (although I did trick my mother into thinking we would walk the roof line - just a bit scared!!), we...More

Beautiful building and worth taking a tour which is what I did. Saw behind the scenes plus information was detailed and knowledgeable. Also I sat afterwards and had a small lunch which cost a lot in the local cafes but views were worth it.

This old girl is still as stunning as it ever was. You can do tours of it and views from across the bay are the best from the passenger terminal.

We took a captain cook 1 hour tour of the harbor. You get to see the bridge and the opera house from an amazing angle. Absolutely breathtaking. I went with 2 friends and we had a blast.

Seeing this amazing building building in person was spectacular. Being able to touch it is unreal. The only downfall was not being able to see more inside and hands on. As well as the options for shows were kind of boring. There are many angles...More

Although we did not go into the Opera House due to our time restrictions, I would urge everyone that visits Australia to at least go and see this marvellous building, so impressive and such a lovely atmosphere all around it .

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
