We took the morning Back Stage Tour - and loved it. I loved being able to walk on stage, and back stage on several of the theater complexes stages. Seeing the differences in the back stage areas, going into dressing rooms and watching how they are all connected to move seats and sets around the complex was great.

Our guide was up beat, and fairly knowledgeable about the area, if not everything to do with theaters. I highly recommended the tour for those who like history, architecture and theater.

What an incredibly impressive building. The guided tour was worth the price of admission and the history lesson behind the building is very interesting. We had a nice lunch at the cafe overlooking the harbour. A must see for all Sydney visitors.

People forget that the best thing about the Opera House is that actual Operas, Shows and Concerts are performed there. It is to me one of the main attraction to Sydney and I always go to see or hear something there whenever I get the chance. Who said that the experience of a lifetime cannot be repeated over and over?

I haven't been inside the Opera house, but it looks amazing just even from the outside. the amazing architecture and the history is just fabulous. The structure looks so amazing, beautiful right in the middle, the walkway, the path towards it is just so amazing that you will ought to be mesmerized.
There are loads of restaurants and coffees shops/live music etc along the way. making it a perfect beautiful evening to watch the sun set
