The Sydney Opera House is breathtaking inside and out! With its proximity to Sydney Harbour and views from land (including above from the bridge) and sea (you've gotta take the ferries!), its iconic structure is known throughout the world. Learn more from the informative tour (approximately one hour, there is a cost) and see inside the various rooms and stages. Even better, go to a performance!

Found the Opera House tour to be very interesting, wide use of different materials and roof tiles. Lucky to catch a rehearsal of the symphony orchestra to appreciate the acoustics. Very disappointed that there was very little provision for the physically challenged, except for lower floors. An older person would not be able to attend an opera. Even for this fit senior, there were a lot of steps. Most interested in the history of the building process which was offered on short videos. A very worthwhile tour.

Instantly recognised around the World....visiting Sydney we so wanted to see the Opera House....and were amazed how the roof "sails" change colour with changing light!! We went on a 1 hour organised tour....led by a very passionate opera- loving Lady...who gave an excellent tour talk via our head- sets! We loved the story of the design and construction.....14.5 yrs and massively over budget....but so worth every dollar!! The Concert Hall was in- use so we sat in the Opera Theatre and imagined being part of a 1507 audience!! The materials used and standard of finish were just superb and the Harbour- side location just perfect....we loved it!!!
