Sydney opera house was something we knew we had to see in person (we are from America). It did not disappoint! We saw a concert and the inside is just so beautiful. Truly an iconic place!

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.

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.

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

Our tour of the opera house was booked for us as part of our Australian tour so don't know how that works but I guess if you give the name and address of the hotel you will be staying that will do.
