You cannot come to Sydney and not take a stroll around the Opera House. Additionally, if you can take a ferry, or water taxi and see the Opera House from the Harbor it will be worth the money. Especially at night. I would have loved...More

Hey, if you are in Sydney you got to go and visit the Opea house. Even if you don't go inside, it worth visiting it and enjoy the views of the city.

An iconic site in Sydney that’s a must to-do when here! With a fabulous background and views surrounding this building, why wouldn’t you enjoy a drink (or 2) during summer.

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

I did the 1 hour guided tour. For someone like me who didn't research much on sydney opera house, it was an informative session. You'll also get to enter some of the halls. I felt that it was a good experience.
