The Opera House is a wonderful place to visit and even go through it on a tour, the position of the building on the foreshores of Sydney harbour stands for itself.

It was wonderful to visit the Opera House and see the amazing architectural design. The Concert Hall is impressive....although elements of the building are looking a little dated and could do with a renovation. The view from the steps is iconic. Well worth the visit!...More

Iconic - great photos to be taken here. I would recommend a lunch or dinner cruise if you want to see the opera house and harbour bridge at a leisurely pace. You also get great photos that way !

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
