A guided tour it is a must here once you are in Sydney and have an hour or so to spare, the tour guide we had, took us from the basement to the main theater, we saw every show room, with very good information on construction, design, history and stories .

Always kept this building in mind as a place to visit and finally did. It is all that it sets the expectations to be. The structure is magnificent!

If you get chance walk into the gardens at the side of the Opera House nd take a leisurely stroll around the bay. This could take you hours as you will be stopping to admire the gardens and the harbour.

I loved this walk - I only wish we'd had more time to stop and enjoy more of the flowers. It's about a mile from the Opera House to Mrs. Macquarie's Chair. It's paved the whole way with the harbor on one side and the botanic gardens on the other.

We have the best Harbour in the world. Nothing beats the site of landing at the airport than the view over our opera house and harbour bridge. Walking around these iconic sites gives Australians a sense of pride. There is so much to see on the water and on land as well. This area is accessible to all with views... More

This is a walk that everyone can enjoy easily, and it's free, all you need is the time and the reward is well worth the effort. It is an easy flat walk with lots of points of interest all along the way and of course there are good food and other amenities at the Botanic Gardens which all go to... More

The opera house is the number one thing you think about when you hear Sydney. The garden is really nice as well, it's a must visit.

Beautiful fall day in Sydney, sunny skies, cool temperature, and a wonderful walk along the harbor. Views of bay, gardens, skyline, governor's house and of course the Opera house. No visit to Sydney is complete without taking this stroll.

My wife and I had couple of days in Sydney harbor. We caught our flight from our vacation in Bali, and took the route SYD-LAX. Having a couple of days here was a fantastic way to end our Asian visit. Our walk from our hotel to the Opera House to the Botanic Garden was well worth it strain in our... More

Staying in Central Business District

Neighborhood 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.
