Lots of seagulls (good luck fending them off!) but all in all, a great place to just sit around and bask in the sun with a good book

A great place to have a drink, eat or simply relax while you see the Opera House, the Bridge and a wonderful sea. Food there is expensive but very good. Fantastic place to meet other people.

Sydney Opera house is one of the iconic buildings in sydney and is definitely a must see !! I would highly recommend dining or having a glass of wine in the restuarant located below the opera house !! During weekends this place has an amazing energy !

A must place to visit if you are in Sydney.Tour the gardens, the opera house, and walk across the bridge to enjoy some of the loveliest views you will ever see.Spend a day walking around Circular Quay and the Rocks, just fantastic. Plenty of food, drink and activities.Definitely worth a visit to view.
