the acoustic is very good but in this day and age this place is outdated. The steep spiral staircase has no emergency excess and in case of fire, people find its almost impossible to escape. I think it is time to renew this place. It...More

It's hard to find anything new to say about the Opera House except to say that it lives up to its reputation as an icon. It looks just as impressive from the harbour as it does from the land.

A great place to spent in Sydney is in Sydney Opera House. Not only the show of the Opera House, which are very great, but also its surrounding.

I didn't think I'd take any/many photos of the Opera House. Didn't think I'd pay much attention to it. Maybe a thousand photos later from just about every angle and I can tell you that should make a visit. I loved the view from the...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

At any time of the year, but if you will be in the city for a couple of days it's better summer, from December till April

Hi, I booked on the Opera House website 3 tickets for an orchestra. I took the refund insurance. Is it possible to get a refund on one ticket and use the others? There is no contract/information on the website about the refund criteria, who to call, and how to claim it. Cheers, Audrey
