If you think of Sydney, along side of the equally famous Sydney Harbour Bridge, the Sydney Opera House stands out as the world's first and foremost Sydney icon.
The Sydney central district is built around Circular Quay as its harbour hub, with the Opera House standing as its unmistakably dominating city-side feature overlooking the most beautiful harbour in the world, with the best vantage of the Harbour Bridge from the Opera House forecourt.
Take your camera as this is a structure that fascinates from any angle and has to be seen to appreciate how amazing it looks.
Located an easy 5 minutes walk from any CBD hotel, Circular Quay is a wonderful location alive with tourists and locals strolling around amongst local buskers, Aboriginal performers, prolific restaurants and the best views in Sydney.
After you walk around the Opera House and marvel at it's shape, location and sheer unqueness, you can stand on its forecourt and take in the rest of the harbour, city sky line, Botanical gardens and harbour Bridge.
There's regular Opera House Tours conducted inside the building that you can book and pay for in the undercover part of the forecourt. This way you get to see the main hall and inside features. My recommendation is to attend a performance there to experience the real Opera House. Beware though that the main auditiorium is the one to see, the other smaller halls are less spectacular and will not satisfy your desire to experience the Opera House versus the performance you are enjoying.
