If you are a student of world-class architectural design or a fan of the performing arts the Sydney Opera House is a must see. The Opera House offers two different tours which, unless you have purchased a ticket to a show, is the only way to see the majority of the inside of the building. One tour is an hour... More

The opera house from the outside is just absolutely stunning and you can get great views of this right up to the opera house exterior but also from circular quay, the harbour bridge and the various boats going into and out of circular quay. We took a short tour of the opera house which was so worth it - it... More

We almost didn't do the Sydney Opera House Tour, but are so glad that we did. The cost is $37 AUS per adult, although we found a 10% off coupon in a Sydney visitor's information booklet. It is a fascinating place, from its historical design and architecture, the politics of it, the acoustics of the theaters to the business end... More

It is a must go place. Since childhood, I wanted to see Sydney Opera House. I had a fascination for this location for reasons unknown to me. And to be true, this place didn't disappoint me at all. I have been here in day time as well as in night time. It really look beautiful on a sunny day and... More

A must visit spot. I saw a Symphony Orchestra performing Queen songs and had no difficulty getting tickets despite reputation as being difficult to get seats. Make time to visit the Opera Bar before a show for some great people watching. Wonderful views, also in the dark at the interval.

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.
