We made the mistake of going to see the opera house after a day at the Bly mountains and took the hire car. We only stayed 20 min and came back to a $39 parking cost in the underground car park. Wilsons car park ripping...More

Did this opera house tour and a few in our tour group found it difficult to get around due to lack of facilities for the less mobile. The tour itself I found a bit tedious, the guide telling us the same information over and over....More

I never tire of looking at the Sydney Opera House. We visit often for shows or just for a drink or some food at the Opera Bar or the many other bars/restaurants along the walk to the Opera House. A terrific place for overseas visitors...More

Walked across the bridge and back again. Good view of Sydney. Iconic and memorable. Have now used every mode of transport across the bridge. Next time would like to climb the bridge.

If time permits, see it during the day and once again during sunset. It changes colour during sunset. Romantic during sunset.

Amazing tour of this very iconic building! Great 1.5 hour tour and getting to see the great concert hall was just superb! Try to go early in the day since the groups will be smaller

Did the tour of the opera house and it was really informative, so now we know the exact history, plus also lots of touristy pictures taken ;-)

The Opera House is surprisingly beautiful. Although we all recognise it from photos and tv, nothing prepares you for its impact. Be sure to do a tour of the building. It is really worth 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
