It is really amazing architecture and science/tech and the classy surrounds. It is worth it to take a guided tour and witness this wonder. Would love to someday be able to see a show there in future.

The Opera House is at Circular Quay, easily accessibly through Royal Botanical Gardens as well. Completed in 1973, it took 14 years to complete. You don’t need a ticket to have a cocktail or eat at the restaurant. It’s free to walk inside the Opera...More

Do not book performances through Opera Australia. Book directly with the SOH box office if you want flexibility and correct information. The SOH is a wonderful venue and a must see on your holiday.

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
