The Sydney Opera House never ceases to impress me each time I visit. After 45 years it still seems fresh and modern. Great concerts and great harbour views with fine dining all around.

You cannot come to Sydney and not take a stroll around the Opera House. Additionally, if you can take a ferry, or water taxi and see the Opera House from the Harbor it will be worth the money. Especially at night. I would have loved...More

Central Business District
The Sydney Central Business District is abuzz with
energy. Power brokers run to and from high rise
buildings and after-work drink places, high-end
shoppers tour venues like the QVB, and fine diners
frequent the many celebrity chef restaurants. For a
dose of culture, walk to the NSW Art Gallery, or visit
the Sydney Museum. To escape the hustle and bustle,
reconnect with nature at the Sydney Botanical Gardens

The only free parking is around the residential areas, which is a bit of a walk away from the Opera House and then it is hard to get a spot. If you have no problem walking, get the train to Circular Quay station, it is a 5... More

I did the 1 hour guided tour. For someone like me who didn't research much on sydney opera house, it was an informative session. You'll also get to enter some of the halls. I felt that it was a good experience.
