We sat in the Opera Bar prior to seeing Bangarra's Lore last night and had lovely tapas and copious amounts of sparkling wine... The sails of the opera house and the harbour bridge lights twinkling in the background were a perfect setting!

Took a tour of the Opera house and it was very informative. I did not realize how big it was and how many events were held there. Seeing the history (and politics) of the Opera House construction was a bonus. The tour was run by the Opera House

I have always wondered how this unique architectural design was built. I can never have enough photos with this beauty whenever I am in Sydney. Glad that I join the tour where we were told how this design was chosen just from just a sketch in 1957 and it took 15 years to build! It will be worthwhile to join... More

One of my favorite parts of Sydney! Whether from the water, air or right beside on dry land, the Opera House is stunning! I highly recommend a guided tour. To learn about the history of such an iconic landmark is fascinating, the Opera House holds a very interesting story indeed. I got to go inside each show room, I wasn't... More
