Well, everyone knows what it looks like, and it's even better up close. Walk round the quay and it's breathtaking. We had dinner in one of the restaurants - service was slow and not terribly efficient, but the food was good and prices were about...More

I enjoyed a one-hour tour (which I booked online without difficulty, printing the ticket at my hotel), which gave some insight into the history and construction of this iconic building. Our guide was knowledgeable and personable and did a nice job. It was disappointing -...More

You realise you've arrived when you see this. Did the tour which was very interesting. Managed to see a show there which was excellent. The building is iconic.

Unique architecture. Easy to get to, right in the city, close public transport. Great venue for ballet, opera etc. Amazing view of the Harbour Bridge from the many nice restaurants close by.

Went on News Years eve and wonderful. Opera was great, staff was great. Hard to find dinner place that night but definite go to. Go early and have a drink on the wharf. Of course great views all around.

Usually visit here to go to the Opera Bar which is awesome but we also went to a show here a couple of weekends ago and it was a gorgeous place. The lift without a roof is quite a shock but pretty awesome. The view...More

Took my two grandchildren 8 & 10. They were enthralled with the opera house interior and the tour guide explained everything in plain language so they could understand. I had been before but it was great to see the place through the eyes of children

This exceptional piece of architectural is stunning. It is truly one of the modern world's greatest feats and is more than worthy of all praise that is heaped upon it. Take a ferry ride to view it from the water, walk around to the MCA...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

The tour is excellent and great narration but the wow factor is sitting in the concert room which you’ll experience for real with a live performance. You’d get to see 2 other rooms (maybe as depends what’s happening on the... More
