  • Led by a local guide
  • Choice of several departures throughout the day
Your tour of the Sydney Opera House takes you behind the scenes of one of the world’s most iconic performance venues, where more than 1,500 concerts, plays, musicals and ballets are staged every year. Explore it with an insider guide, who shares stories and fun facts about the opera house’s history, performances and architecture throughout your 1-hour tour.

Walk through the elegant foyers, visit one of the largest pillar-free chambers in the world, sit down in a custom-made white birch chair and look up at the vaulted ceiling. Check out areas that are off-limits to the general public, learn about the distinctive exterior design made up of ‘shell’ tiles, and hear about opera house’s Danish architect, including his inspiration and building challenges.

Opera Kitchen tasting plate:
Upgrade your tour to include a tasting plate for two at the Opera Kitchen, an indoor-outdoor gourmet cafe on the lower level of the opera house plaza, where you can relax on the patio before or after your tour and enjoy spectacular views of Sydney Harbour and the Harbour Bridge. The 3-tier tasting plate includes dishes such as sushi, plank-roasted salmon, mini wagyu and chicken burgers, dumplings, spring rolls and fries. You may purchase cocktails, beer or perhaps of glass of Australian wine to accompany your food (own expense).
