“Carmen at its best”
Reviewed February 21, 2014

Saw the production of Carmen last night. Third time for this opera including the Met in New York and in Rome. Although the entire Sydney Opera House and surroundings are quite hectic, I must admit that this was very exciting and the production is the best we've seen. A must in Sydney

“As great as ever”
Reviewed February 16, 2014

Were not permitted to enter on the day we were there. Still, was beautiful and the water views phenomenal. The Rocks area was so nice too, definately worth the visit.

“Most popular and photographed Sydney icon”
Reviewed February 9, 2014

Don’t miss this iconic & most popular tourist attraction so conveniently located in the city centre, close to transport and other tourists attractions.
Catch a train or bus to Circular Quay station and it’s only a few mins walk along the Sydney harbour.
Feel the smooth marble tiled exterior and see for yourself why this is the most photographed building in Sydney with the view of the lovely Sydney harbour bridge which is always a favourite spot for our overseas friends.

“There is no other Building to match this in Australia.”
Reviewed February 5, 2014

You can find easy parking at the Opera House Parking Station. The views from the Opera House back to Sydney Harbour Bridge are magnificent.
Jump on a Ferry and get photos of the Opera House from the harbour.
