The Sydney Opera House is a magical gem that shimmers & shines during the day & softly glows during twilight. Its ageless & unique architecture seem to have withstood the merciless thrashing of Time & remained innately elegant & youthful.

Waiting 14 mins in the queue to get a tour of the interior. Ticketsellers have a social while many,including foreingn paying visitors get angry at the lack of service. Not a good look. Very very embarrassing for an australian taking foreign visitors there.
If you r in Sydney a must visit tourist attraction. You see the opera house in all highlights of Sydney so don't miss the opportunity of being here. Relax on the benches have a look at the majestic ocean
This is the most recognized structure in the world. I would make the time to take a tour of the inside and then buy tickets to see an event, its time to check that off your list. Sure you can walk around inside but do...More
We did the guided tour which even our 15 and 17 year old found to be interesting. The history behind the build, cost and politics is very interesting. You can have lunch overlooking the water right at the base in the sun or shade.
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
or picnic lunch at High Park. No matter your interest, be sure to check the full calendar of events hosted by the city, from the Sydney Festival in January to October’s Good Food Month at Hyde Park.

Thanks for your questions. In terms of avoiding harsh sunlight, you should aim to visit us between 8am-10am and after 3pm. The sun sets between 6.50pm and 5.15pm during April (depending on what day you come). To get a shot with the skyline in the background I recommend taking a Manly ferry northbound - this will get you the shot you're looking for.
Thanks and kind regards,
