Sydney Opera House

Take in a performance or just take in the splendour of one of the world’s most famous buildings.

Mention Sydney, and the Sydney Opera House will almost certainly come to mind. This 20th century architectural masterpiece is one of the most instantly recognisable buildings in the world. Whether you are coming to enjoy one of its world-class productions or you just want to see this iconic building, no visit to Sydney would be complete without a trip to the opera house.

Listed as a world heritage site, Sydney Opera House has won many architectural awards and plaudits for its unique design. It’s also home to some of the most reputable artistic companies, namely Opera Australia, The Australian Ballet, Sydney Theatre Company and the Sydney Symphony Orchestra. Over one million visitors pass through the building every year to come and admire its magnificent interiors and to enjoy some of the world’s best opera, ballet and classical music performances.

The Sydney Opera House is surrounded on three sides by Sydney Harbour. If you’re feeling energetic, climb the Monument Steps to get some of the best views over the harbour. This location is also a photographer’s dream, so bring your camera and take a few memorable holiday snaps.

The building is such a popular tourist spot that most areas have been made freely available to the public. The reception boasts a striking floor-to-ceiling tapestry which was inspired by Bach’s Hamburg Symphonies.

The internal structure comprises several different concert venues, with the Concert Hall, the Joan Sutherland Theatre and the Drama Theatre being the most prominent. Guided tours of the Sydney Opera House theatres are available if you’d like a look around. Expert guides will talk you through the history and share anecdotes about all of the great performers who have graced the Sydney Opera House since its inauguration in 1973.

If you fancy a bite to eat while you’re taking in the opulence of the Sydney Opera House, there is everything from child-friendly cafés to upmarket restaurants to cater for all visitors. You can also enjoy particularly attractive views across the harbour at the Opera Bar.

The Sydney Opera House box office and tour information desk is open seven days a week for bookings.
