It's Iconic. A great structure and the style. There are no guide or information available except few security guards watching the crowd and the building.

The Sydney Opera House did not disappoint. It was even more beautiful in person. The view at night was even more spectacular. We had the joy of attending a play here. It was well worth the visit!

Opera House is very iconic. One of the landmarks of Sydney and Australia every visitor needs to see. I recommend to book a tour and see how it looks inside. If you are lucky you might see rehersal of ballet or opera.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
