I arrived into Sydney via a cruise ship. I sailed right by the Opera House and felt like I could reach out and touch it. I docked at the Oversees Passenger Terminal. From here it is a short walk past Circular Quay over to the...More

Stunning architecture outside, but inaccessible inside! Restaurant booked for a private event, opera sold out, guided tours sold out onto future tours today and it was 3 pm! Wish I had realized how difficult it would be to see inside!

The opera house is well worth visiting. Unfortunately, there was no performance of interest to my wife and me when we were in Sydney, but we did take the one hour tour. The tour goes over the history of the place, the controversies, and shows...More

It is one of the famous building and opera of Sydney. I had got an opportunity to see one of the finest violin show at this opera house. From inside it is very grand, amazing, beautiful. I had got lifetime experience at the show.

We had a lovely tour. History of the building, how the sound works, special features of the rooms. Takes about an hour. There is stairs and walking. Some escalators and lifts noticed. Not good for small children.

Stunning landmark in this beautiful harbour. You can walk around the Opera House and marvel at it's spectacular beauty and architecture. Lovely restaurants to stop and eat at and seating to sit and marvel at the views.

Beautiful shells unfold before your eyes as you walk closer. Wish we had time to take the $37 tour for 1 hour, although I'dd really rather see a show there inside. The whole harbor walk that way is filled with restaurant/bar and tables to enjoy...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
