Scenic and peaceful walk - something to do by self or with others. Pick up a brochure at the entrance near the opera house and explore. Don't miss the flying foxes - they are something to see!

Yes, you can walk around the Opera House, stand on the steps, admire it from ferries, but nothing prepares you for the experience inside this iconic building. It would be good if the tour price was cheaper for families as I think many don't take...More

A beautiful walk along the water front, but beware of the CBD workers who are so healthy they run through their dinner hours, often with their Personal Trainers. Impressive, but watch out!

If you go on the Opera house web site it will give you all the shows that are currently on. If you are staying in a hotel the reception or concierge will be able to help you.

April in Sydney is Autumn : it's warm but not as hot as in the summer months. Very nice for walking about. Expect daytime temperatures around 20°C (68°F) cooling down at night to 15°C (58°F) .
