Sydney Opera House

You are here Home  > New South Wales  > Sydney >  Sydney Opera House

The Sydney Opera House was designed by Danish architect Jørn Utzon and built over a 14-year period. It was finally completed, way over budget, in 1973. The Opera House is one of Australia’s two internationally recognised urban landmarks (the Harbour Bridge is the other) and is widely recognised for its unique design and imposing position overlooking the harbour at the tip of Bennelong Point. The Opera House has four auditoria and features ballet, classical music, theatre and opera performances. Front of house tours run frequently but backstage tours run less often and need to be booked in advance.

    Was in complete awe when I saw it and walked the steps. I recommend going early in the morning when no one else is around truly magical feeling.

    Ein tolles Gebäude, sollte man auf jeden Fall besichtigen, die Architektur ist was Besonderes. Was man mit dem Architekten gemacht hat, ist allerdings nicht so schön.

    We enjoyed the show here. Got some seats in the middle of the first section of the 2nd tier. Just close enough to enjoy. We can see how the seats to the sides can be fun too.

    The tour is nice, but most of the information comes from watching videos. You can see a lot of the same stuff I think if you see a performance here. If you do the tour,midweek & midday is best.

    If you are unable to attend a show, why not jump on the Opera House Tour, which runs daily between 9am and 5pm and is approximately 1 hour long.

    This is one of the most beautiful buildings in the world! Take a tour or attend a performance if you can.

    MUST VISIT: The guided tour inside the Sydney Opera House is highly recommended. Outside, spend some time to sit on the outdoor stairs and enjoy the view.

    Beautiful architecture, and a neat way to see the performance areas without shelling out $$$ for one of the shows. Guide was knowledgable and witty.

    The most iconic landmark of Sydney and since 2007 on the list of the UNESCO World Heritage. A hotspot for tourists, food, bars and a picture postcard of Sydney. Magnificent view at day and night.
