Create an itinerary including Sydney Opera House
The Sydney Opera House stands as an icon of Australian architecture and one of the world's most instantly recognizable buildings. Designed by Danish architect Jørn Utzon and inaugurated in 1973, the Opera House earned UNESCO World Heritage Site status in 2007 for its unique appearance and engineering achievement. The multiple performance venues feature distinctive roofs of layered sails that look like seashells, and they reside on a peninsula jutting out into Sydney Harbour beneath Sydney Harbour Bridge. Snapping photos as you walk around the harbor represents one way to experience this landmark, but you can also enjoy one of 1,500 annual of performances inside. Start with a tour during the day, discovering some of the 1,000 rooms and listening to dozens of stories about the venue. In the evening, dine in one of the restaurants before taking in the opera, live music, or theater in one of its acoustically splendid rooms. Sydney Opera House is just one of the many highlights you can arrange to see using our , online itinerary creator Edition.

  • Sydney Opera house, one of the iconic structure to visit in Sydney, is a must view attraction in Sydney, just admire its design and architecture. From the Opera House you can get views of the harbour, the Harbour Bridge and of course the unique design of the Opera House itself. All these make Sydney a beautiful picture perfect city. The inside view is spectacular. A must visit place. one can have great pics with Harbour Bridge and It makes a good landmark. Do visit at night once. Also the surrounding areas are beautiful well planned and one can spend full day visiting various hubs nearby
  • The majestic Opera House. Doesn’t need a description. Take a ferry from one of the suburbs and get to Circular Quay. That will get you better views of the Opera House. Also try to do the Ferry to Manly beach and you get beautiful views of Opera. Most vibrant place to visit while in Sydney. Must do!!!!
