I was amazed by the building structure and the inside atmosphere of the Opera house, beautiful and I've enjoyed walking around the area and also taking lots of picture.

Everyone raves about Sydney - was so disappointed. It's over rated and no better than any other city worldwide. Best experience there was trying pumpkin soup for the first time at a harbour cafe - was lovely

From the inside, from the outside, close up and from a distance and from every angle the Opera house is a beautiful structure. Walked around it several times looking up in awe and sat in a bar soaking up the ambience - very nice indeed.

The building is beautiful and the projection on the walls outside were lovely. Great coffee in the cafe and great to sit looking out on the bridge. Fantastic performance of Bennelong. Stunning and moving, beautifully done about a painful aspect of Australian history.

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
