The opera house is good and scenic. The Opera itself was to artsy or me, but the bunch of restaurants nearby are amazing. I spend a couple of evenings just hanging around, having some beer and fries. Truly romntic!

We had eleven people in our party ranging from 86 to one year old. The production was amazing and we all enjoyed it. The staff were very helpful. The only problem we encountered wee the amount of stairs for our elderly. We were looked after very well afterwards and ushered into a mini bus to find a less busy taxi... More

A one hour tour with commentary via headphones. Let's you see some parts of the theatre not open to the public. Very knowledgeable and amusing guide to bring it to life. Well worth it.

We did the obligatory opera house tour and it was extremely crowded on a very rainy day in Feb. We survived all the hubbub and had an excellent guide. We enjoyed the tour and found the place and history fascinating. Everyone should visit this if you are there......as it seems everyone does.

We live 40 minutes away from the Sydney city and have watched few performances in the main hall but every time we visit he Opera House it's always amaze us. The best time to see this icon is June during Vivid Sydney, though for the last few years too much people comes to witness the lights and becomes too crowded.... More

We were lucky enough to take a private tour of the insides of the iconic Sydney Opera House. My partner has trouble walking so, we took the 12:00 disabled tour and no one else booked it, so it was our private tour. We could use the elevators so we did not have to walk all of the stairs. It was... More

A great building to visit - you don't have to do the tour, but it's well worth it - only $37. The history is fascinating, the views spectacular.

Staying in Central Business District

Neighbourhood Profile
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 or picnic lunch at High Park. No matter your interest, be sure to check the full calendar of events hosted by the city, from the Sydney Festival in January to October’s Good Food Month at Hyde Park.
