  • We had wonderful experience just being there. The view is fantastic. The Architecture is marvellous. We spent the evening there just admiring the natural and man made beauty. The shows at the opera are good. I liked the lift we no ceiling in it. The first terrace is worth visiting. The snacks and food items were also good

  • Always a great spot day or night. Take a water taxi here from darling harbour to get unique views. Bar is always buzzing and there can sometimes be food markets near by which adds to the atmosphere. There are tours offered here and inside and outside seating for food and drink. Fantastic to hear music here regardless of how empty or full the auditorium is as seats are designed to absorb the same sound as if some were sitting on them.

  • A beautiful and iconic building. If you have the opportunity to catch a show definitely here do it! The views over the harbour from inside are amazing and it’s also great to see the interior of the opera house itself. I’ve seen a few events in the concert hall and the seats are very comfortable with great views wherever I’ve sat. As expected the acoustics are excellent.

  • This is one of those "wow" attractions! Once you see it, you can't stop loving it! And here you can take awesome pictures which you'll never forget. The combination of the Opera House and the Harbour bridge make one of the best views ever! The architecture of the Opera house is really admirable. Although it cost over 100m$(equivalent to 850m$ in 2014) to build it and it took over 13 years to complete it, you can easily say it worth the money spent as it brings millions of visitors to Sydney every year. If you want to have a closer look, take a tour inside a building. But as tickets of tours are too expensive, buy early bird tickets which applies to 9AM yours and they're much cheaper than normal ones. Overall, don't forget to visit the Opera House when you visit Sydney or you'll regret it!!

  • Its a nice place to visit.. Sydney bridge also located near by. Near opera house so many restaurants are there. Mostly some events will take place around there. Games like speed Boating is available near by. Overall its a nice place to enjoy with family.
