The Opera House is a monument to Sydney, but also to the architectural and engineering feats from the late 1950's-early 1970's. You can visit the Opera House and roam the corridors, but to gain a full appreciation, you must take the tour. I recommend booking...More

We did a family tour at 9am. The host was very competent and the use of a microphone and headset made it very easy to hear and listen too. One of the highlights of Sydney.

An amazing place to visit. You can see a lot by just walking around and through the building on your own. There are virtual reality goggles and head sets you can use that are free, lots of fun. These are located on the cloak room...More

My travel to the Opera House, is one of exclamation points. Walking along the pier front, it's not into view until you come around the curve, and then it hits you, with each step. You say, oh my gosh, there it is. You pause to...More

Not only is this iconic building, which is known to be beautiful and amazing all over the world, it is even more special when one has attended a performance in the main concert hall. A memorable, special time!!

The Sydney Opera House tour is not just for art lovers; it caters for all. The tour is interesting and our guide, the delightful and soft-spoken Nick, enthralled us with tales of this unique building and its tenuous construction. This attraction is a must-see when...More

A wonderful enjoyable charming and inspired hommage to Leonard Cohen by Stewart D'Arrietta and his band in the Sydney Opera House

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
