Nashvillian visiting Sydney. A must see attraction for anyone visiting Australia. Beautiful architecture and a great showcase for walking Sydney. Also walk botanical gardens across the pier. Did not realize that it is made of tile until I got up close.

I am not an opera fan and have never been to an opera before. However, the set and acting was absolutely stunning. I found the acoustics a little rough at times as the voiced were so powerful they almost vibrated in my ears. Definitely an...More

The opera house is highly over rated; when it is not in use it is just a building at the end of the day. The restaurant is far too expensive to even entertain the idea of going to.

So beautiful and really unique architecture. It makes you feel the difference from other music halls. The outlook also doesn't need more words! Just look at its pictures.

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

The only free parking is around the residential areas, which is a bit of a walk away from the Opera House and then it is hard to get a spot. If you have no problem walking, get the train to Circular Quay station, it is a 5... More

I did the 1 hour guided tour. For someone like me who didn't research much on sydney opera house, it was an informative session. You'll also get to enter some of the halls. I felt that it was a good experience.
