Sydney Opera House, Sydney Reviews
Wonderful place to attend concerts. Being directly on the Sydney Harbour of course adds to the experience. You can get here two ways. Either drive or take the hydrofoil which is a pleasant boat ride and I would suggest it to anyone who visits. Unlike many places here in the states Australians are extremely friendly and helpful. If you ever need directions they will always steer you the right way (no pun intended). Sydney is beautiful with so much to offer. The acoustics of the Opera House makes it so regardless of wherever you're sitting it will sound like you're sitting in the front row directly in front of the entertainers so no worries of not being able to hear the concert as you always will. Even if you sit directly in the back you will enjoy the experience as if you were sitting directly up front.
I was pleasantly surprised by the Opera House Tour. I'm a happily self guided traveller, never book tours, but I really wanted to get inside this amazing building, and a tour is the only way. LOVED our tour guide Bruce - he was great, interesting, funny and we all had a great time. The interior of the opera house was just spectacular and we also got to hear the Sydney Symphony Orchestra rehearsing, which just left us with goosebumps. The staff in ticketing were extremely helpful and the whole tour experience was flawless. Don't hesitate! Our kids really enjoyed it too (ages 12, 10 & 8).
Pas banget ke Sydney pas ada Vivid Sydney yang membuat kawasan di sekitar Opera House bermandikan gemerlap cahaya. Asyik. Beruntung juga saya bisa transit di Sydney sekitar 20 an jam. Jadi dari Brisbane ke Jakarta, sengaja cari penerbangan yg transitnya lama jadi bisa ke luar bandara ke pusat kota. Gampang banget, naik kereta dari bandara trus cari hotel depan stasiun kereta. Naruh koper trus jalan kaki ke kawasan Opera House dan Darling Harbour yg sedang bertabur cahaya dan lampu lampu warna warna seperti lihat video yg ditembakkan ke gedung gedung. Indaaah sekali...
Oh Sydney! No clue why you’ve been declared THE most beautiful harbour on this Planet. You really are. I got goosebumps all over my body when I think about you. I’m not faking it, it’s true! You are something that every person on this Planet should live to experience happiness. You have it all: beautiful, huge, green national parks, crystal clear water, unreal wildlife, friendly people – of course Australians are friendly…they are living THE LIFE: no stress, no drama, no bad vibes – amazing city skyline, nice weather. YOU ARE LOVE. I LOVE YOU SYDNEY. Thanks for letting me know HAPPINESS is actually real.
I highly recommend taking the guided tour. They give great information and you get an in-depth view of all the different areas of the Opera house. Our tour guide was awesome! This building is a modern marvel! The views from around the area were gorgeous. I would love to go back and watch a show there.
