You can't go to Sydney without visiting this icon. Waling around the perimeter you get up close to the structure and get a great view of the tiles on the "sails". Even the wash rooms are worth a visit for a look at their unique design with "wave" doors and sinks that create an illusion of the beach. I would... More

Excellent place to visit, love the eateries that surround the harbour to sit out and enjoy a meal or drink near the Australian icon and the harbour a must when in Sydney. Would love to have done a behind the scenes and ghost 2 hour tour but it started at 7am in the morning!!

This is one of those "wow" attractions! Once you see it, you can stop loving it! And here you can take awesome pictures which you'll never forget. The combination of the Opera House and the Harbour bridge make one of the best views ever! The architecture of the Opera house is really admirable. Although it cost over 100m$(equivalent to 850m$...

The first time I went I did the organised tour, which was brilliant very informative without being boring. The second time was with some friends to see an opera, they do this really cool deal which is definite worth looking into. Basically you turn up on the morning of the show at 9am and ask for standing room tickets, these... More

I always make sure that I visit this beautiful place when I visit Sydney, Australia, which is one of my favourite cities in the world, if not THE favourite city for me. There are many things that you can do at this place, here what I have done over the years: 1) if this is your first time in Sydney,... More

The opera house looks amazing outside, but this review is about the guided tour inside it. There is no photography or video allowed inside the concert halls (although they were empty and there was no show ongoing) and the tour was highly overpriced, 37 AUD. It was also not interesting enough to justify the price. I would recommend anyone to... More

The Opera house is stunning, I had a fantastic view from my hotel room ( Holiday Inn, Potts Point) had my close up a zillion pictures and met a good friend from halfway around the world on the steps. Oh yeah I said hello to it from my sister in law who visited years ago
