Our guide was very informative and gave our group of 6 a fabulous tour. We even got to see the stage/lighting being set up for Stereophonic’s and watched part of the rehearsal for The Merry Widow

If you are going to see the Opera house, get yourself a ferry to Manly and come back as the sun is setting. This gives you a perfect view of the bay and the bridge. You will also get to see the opera house from...More

Who would be so audacious to build such a structure in pride of place in the harbour. An extraordinary vision that shows the independent Australian spirit for all to see!

If you visit Sydney the Opera House is a must simply because the building design is stunning. The views from the steps the walk around path and the forecourt are also pretty special.

We all know even without ever been to Australia of the beauty of this emblematic site. But I definitely recommend taking the 1 hour long tour . It's very interesting and you get to see what you will never see unless you take it.

You cannot fail to be impressed by this distinctive building with it's sails. I recommend you visit the building during the day and evening as it has a completely different look and atmosphere. Taking a cruise is another great way to see the 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
