The option of seeing inside was not available but the exterior is worth a look. The synagogue was built to unite two Jewish communities in Sydney between 1874 and 1878 ans is now a heritage listed building.

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.
