Sometimes great people have to be gone to be recognised for their greatness. The Opera House is a stunning monument and working theatre complex.

We attended the comedy festival at The Opera House. I enjoyed all the Comedians and the Show but was disappointed in the outdated and uncomfortable chairs we sat on.

The one tour you must take when visiting, especially if this is your first visit. Although inspiring from the outside, there is so much more to learn on the tour. Guide was extremely knowledgeable and able to answer any question brought up by the tour...More

From afar and up close it is a sight well worth seeing. Up close and inside an examination of the building and architecture is astounding. It is the centrepiece of the harbour now in spite of the grand old bridge and it can be seen...More

You’d have to take the guided tour to really appreciate the full beauty of this award winning piece of architecture. The Danish architect unfortunately never could see his creation when in full harmony with its environment - therefor today it is visited by about 2...More

Great opera and fantastic cast, whatever opera you choose to see it will be a fantastic experience and you have translation screens into English & Chinese to help you understand what is going on if you don't speak Italian, really enhances the whole experience.

Penultimate evening of our trip we spent watching Carmen at Sydney Opera House. It was amazing and despite the price don't hesitate to book tickets if you have the opportunity!

We took a tour of this amazing building. We learned a lot of information about the building of the structure and how the structure is used today. It is a "must see"

When you are in Sydney you have to take the tour of the Sydney Opera House. The guides are very knowledgble about the history, politics and the construction of the landmark. We thoroughly enjoyed this +1 hour tour.

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
