A wonderful building - amazing to see it close-up. I had the guided tour - it was well worth it.The detail that went into the design was hugely impressive. Sadly, I had no time to go to a concert - I'll have to go back to Sydney.

We booked up on line for the Back Stage Tour, the starting time of 7.00am seemed a bit dramatic but we were rewarded with seeing a fantastic sunrise over the Opera House and an enlightening tour behind the scenes. When we got there the "stage mechanics" (stagehands in the UK) were busy dismantling the previous nights performance, we could not of got more backstage unless we were working there! Our guide (Adam I think) was a font of all knowledge and gave us a remarkable insight into the history of the building and was very confident answering questions on all sorts of subjects relating to the theatre.
To finish off there is a huge cooked breakfast included in the price which is taken in the Opera House green room. An absolutely fabulous and not to be missed experience.

Our guide Sue was friendly knowledgeable and entertaining. Though you're not allowed to take photos in the theatres you can everywhere else.

Take your time. Walk around the Opera House, have a coffee, sit along the wharf and then walk or run the Botanical Gardens and park. It's just amazing and beautiful.

Whilst I'd followed recommendations not to bother going inside, DO take time to have an early evening (5pm onwards) drink in the lea of the House, looking at the Bridge with it's climbers!
