On our first visit to Sydney, we of course had to include the world famous opera house. We were pleasantly surprised by the amount of access possible. You can easily wander around the public spaces, enjoy the cafés and the sights (especially of the harbor bridge) from the Opera house. However, be sure to take the tour of the interior... More

We came here in September and had a wonderful tour. I was told it was a must see and do so we booked on the tour the night before. It was straight forward on the website and collecting tickets was easy enough. I thought it was a little strange that they took your photograph before the tour to try and... More

It obvious that you MUST visit the Opera House in Sydney. It was even more impressive in person than what you see in movies or documentary. Visit both during the day and night.

I really enjoyed the tour of the Sydney Opera House. Our guide was very good and knowledgeable and kept us moving. I did have a problem half way through with my headset which couldn't be fixed so I recommend really making sure yours is working before heading out.

Can't quite put into words really! Just an amazing piece of architecture that both looks amazing both day and night! We had a lovely evening spending the night at the opera bar being able to admire the views of the opera house all lit up! Go on a Saturday for fireworks as well, unforgettable night!

I don't give it an excellent purely because of all the story's I heard before i visited: I thought it would be bigger. Still a beautiful piece or architecture of course, but it was too crowded when we visited. Still makes some great pictures to show back home.

I have been around Sydney so long, the Opera House Sails are part of some of my earliest memories. They look spectacular, good weather or bad, sun rise to sun set, (and even at night), but internally the old shiela is pretty wonky. It all started with the ABC's insistence of putting the opera theatre in the wrong shell to... More

Yet another Sydney icon not to be missed. Even if all you do is wander around outside and get the obligation photo on the steps. I would recommend doing the tour. Inside is amazing and the guides are knowledgeable. Definitely not to be missed on any visit to Sydney

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.
