    The building itself is the attraction really. Don't miss the rooftop with the view on the quay.

    Circular Quay is home not only to the Opera House, but one of the most important institutions, the Museum of Contemporary Art, which holds a dress circle location overlooking Sydney Harbor.

    As some parts of MCA are free of charge, it's a nice 'drop-in' whenever you are in the area
