Australia can afford the best, and despite budget restraints, Opera Australia does an utterly professional and sometimes intuitively grand job. This institution needs constant financial support and deserves it.

As a Canberra resident I subscribe to 9 Saturday nights a year. Opera Australia provides enjoyable performances (some better than others but that is part of the experience) and I think it is important to support our cultural institutions.

We opted for the guided tour, and found it very entertaining and learnt the history behind the Opera House. Enjoyed the stroll after the tour and hanging out by the harbour, a very lovely afternoon out!

Handa Opera on Sydney Harbour: what a great night out! (and memorable birthday gift.) Good eats on one of the the terraces before the show (from menu with Japanese-themed titles), sipping sparkling with magnificent views from Mrs Macquarie's Point, beautiful sets & costumes, fantastic performances especially from soprano Hiroma Omuri - an audio & visual treat.

Refer Sydney Opera House to see review on this stunning building which is located walking distance from Circular Quay Ferries Terminal and Circular Quay Railway station. Stop for a meal at one of the many alfresco dining establishments on the water front between Circular Quay and the Opera House.

Just standing next to this most wonderful structure was awesome. Shame there were construction works going on at the time which did slightly interfere with the photos at some angles. But all the same I would not had missed spending time here
