“not too bad”
Reviewed May 31, 2013

If your area of interest lies in this direction you may enjoy visiting here. I don't think it would be in the top 10 places to visit in Sydney for most people. However I found it quite interesting.

“Go for a drink on a Friday night”
Reviewed May 17, 2013

First time in Sydney and I meet up with some friends from school. They took me to a bar on the main area outside of Customs House.

Was a really good setting with a cold beer and the bustle of the city

“City diorama”
Reviewed May 16, 2013

This well preserved building right at Circular Quay is worth a visit just to see the under the glass floor city diorama. As a lifetime Sydneyite, I had the perfect overview of the city. It put everything in perspective.

“Go See the Miniature Sydney”
Reviewed April 25, 2013

There isn't much to see inside except for the miniature model of Sydney under glass on the floor which is kind of cool. There also might be free Internet but I'm not 100% sure. The outside is pretty too.

“See Sydney beneath your feet !”
Reviewed April 4, 2013

Although it has other functions (library, eateries etc) the best thing about the Customs House is the model of Sydney which is beneath a glass (?) floor so you can explore it in a few paces. Pick out where you are, where you've been and where you're staying as well as get a feel for the whole shape of the city. It's free to enter and provides an excellent indoor activity whether you wish to escape sun or rain. The Customs House is located just across the road from Circular Quay.
