A must see. We enjoyed walking around the opera house steps and taking lots of pictures. What a beautiful sight. We missed out on a tour because there were shows the only day we were there. Look for tour times asap. Regret missing a real tour.

Great location and lively bar.Expensive but entertaining. Beautiful views at night. To bad the Opera wasn't as good!

“As Good as Advertised”
Reviewed July 20, 2013

All my friends told me I had to go to the Opera House, but that's not my type of music. After being there and seeing the beautiful architecture and hearing people rehearsing for a show, I was astounded, with the building and also the acoustics of the auditorium. This is a must see, while in Sydney,

“Wow and wow amazing place”
Reviewed July 19, 2013

This is an amazing place. You see it on postcards but until you are there you really dont know how big it is, and whoever designed it had great vision. Renovations were happening at the time I visited so I missed out on some areas. But what I did see took my breathe away. I will be back to see it again

This building is just incredible. Saw a show here - which just made it even more special. Pre dinner drinks at the opera bar are a must - terrific, chilled out venue.
