For most people, the image that springs to mind when you say "Sydney" is the Opera House. When you go to Sydney, you MUST tour the opera house. The tour is very interesting and gives you a great deal of information. It takes you behind...More

The $40 dollar tour was informative and the only way to see the inside without seeing a show. The history of the building process was interesting. I would recommend it to my friends and family.

Even though it was raining and windy the day we went, it didn't detract from the beauty of the building. The area, in general, is great to explore, with parks up above and the harbour right next to it. Stroll along the restaurants nearby for...More

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

We were sitting row W middle. We had very good hearing and a comprehensive view of the stage. My suggestion is any row from N up will be very good for opera
