The Sydney Opera House is a wonder to be seen from the inside as well as the outside. The structures are amazing and the views from the harbour are spectacular.

This is a must-visit place for everyone who visits Australia, let alone Sydney. The building is magnificent and beautiful in its way and the surrounding area of Circular Quay is also a jewel in CBD. Be sure to pay a visit to Opera House, and...More

We were lucky enough to visit at sunset before attending La Boheme. Gorgeous spot and the Opera House itself an architectural marvel.

While it is probably better to visit with time and including a performance, this tour of around 1 hour is satisfactory. Our guide David was very competent and attentive, he made the visit really worthwhile. The building is unique, simply magnificent. Our visit was on...More

Just been to La Boheme. A superb performance in an iconic building. A glass of fizz on the concourse overlooking Darling Harbour and Sydney Harbour Bridge before the performance - reasonably priced. Altogether a wonderful experience- not cheap but worth every penny.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

Our tour of the opera house was booked for us as part of our Australian tour so don't know how that works but I guess if you give the name and address of the hotel you will be staying that will do.
