    This is not a review of the complete architecture of the Sydney Opera House. However, is is an appreciation of the exterior beauty of this gem of Sydney. The placement of the building on the harbor is just brilliant. The peaking arches of the roof line resemble a ships sails jutting out to sea. The lighting, the walkways, and the General design of the entrance mall draw the viewer in to experience the entire building. There is a really nice establishment also on the grounds, though I was unable to take advantage of it, I am told by local residents it is excellent. Superior food and beverages. With a harbor view of the busy ferries on one side and the Lovely Opera House on the other, along with an entrance to the botanical gardens a very short walk away.

    Very interesting! Seeing all the venues except Performance Hall which was under renovation was so fascinating. The attention to detail with both the structure design and interior design is mind blowing! Our guide, Jessie, was charming and so informative. The history about the architect Otzen and the political turmoil that short changed him was heartbreaking. This is a must do I’m Sydney. Just taking pics of the exterior is just not enough.

    Took guided tour for $42....waste of time and money. We were shown one concert hall, private dining venues, public areas,and the basement. No pics allowed. I'm a world traveler, worst tour I've ever taken. I'd like a refund!!!

    My wife was unable to handle all the steps on the normal walking tours of the Sydney Opera House. Fortunately, they offer one tour a day at noon that is accessible without the stairs. It was raining as hard as I've ever seen it rain on the day of our tours but it was definitely worthwhile. We got to see essentially all of the spots on the normal tour without the steps and learning lots of the idiosyncrasies of the Opera House and its development

    Ofcourse you have to visit the insides of the amazing Opera House if you can. Lovely to hear initially people were so much against it being built, now its just iconic!

    I love to catch a bus in to the city and walk down to Circular Quay. First thing I do is check out the MCA (Museum of Contemporary Art). They often have interesting Exhibitions and there is a wonderful shop for souvenirs. Then I stroll along the wharves to the Opera House. If you haven’t been there it really is worth taking a tour of this iconic building. Following on from here I walk through the Botanical Gardens. There is a great restaurant if you’re feeling hungry. Then I continue up to the Art Gallery of New South Wales. There are always interesting exhibitions on but if you don’t feel like paying for the special exhibitions quite a large section of the gallery is free of charge. I especially like the lowest level where the Aboriginal exhibits are displayed.

    Very easy to reach via ferry or train to circular quay. Also nice to walk around the area as there is the modern art museum and the opera bar (great to watch the sun set over a wine)
