The Sydney Opera House stands as an icon of Australian architecture and one of the world's most instantly recognizable buildings. Designed by Danish architect Jørn Utzon and inaugurated in 1973, the Opera House earned UNESCO World Heritage Site status in 2007 for its unique appearance and engineering achievement. The multiple performance venues feature distinctive roofs of layered sails that look like seashells, and they reside on a peninsula jutting out into Sydney Harbour beneath Sydney Harbour Bridge. Snapping photos as you walk around the harbor represents one way to experience this landmark, but you can also enjoy one of 1,500 annual of performances inside. Start with a tour during the day, discovering some of the 1,000 rooms and listening to dozens of stories about the venue. In the evening, dine in one of the restaurants before taking in the opera, live music, or theater in one of its acoustically splendid rooms. Sydney Opera House is just one of the many highlights you can arrange to see using our , online itinerary creator Edition.

One of the few places in the world where unique is not an overstatement, just like the harbour it overlooks.

An Australian icon, beautiful architecture and a stunning presence by the harbour. Enjoy the views of the Harbour Bridge and the Sydney Skyline. The restaurants and bars make it a great place to spend the day or evening with a very lively atmosphere. There are several cafes and restaurants in the area offering a variety of cuisines. Paid parking is available close by for convenience and it’s accessible by ferry too! I hope it stands strong for another century and beyond.
Came with a friend to enjoy my guest visit back after lock down. Great views. Staff are friendly and efficient. Prices ain't too bad. You're paying for the amazing views. Fun place to sit and chat
