Joe, our tour guide was so knowledgeable and just a joy to listen to. It ended too quickly and was so informative.

Well worth the price. You won’t be disappointed with this tour. Lots of stairs and walking. So beware!

One can never tire of the sight Jørn Utzon’s architectural masterpiece. The colours of the sails change according to the time of day. One can enjoy simply this unique interior. Tickets are available for tours of the interior.

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
