It’s spectacular from a distance, and even better up close. A Sydney Opera House tour uncovers the stories behind the Sydney icon, while building enthusiasts can enjoy the architectural tour. Think you’ll need a bite afterwards? Tour and Dine follows your guided tour with a relaxing lunch at Opera Kitchen. Or maybe you’re up for a bigger feed. Taste of the House is an all-inclusive long lunch at each of the Opera House’s leading restaurants and bars. If opera is more your flavour, Taste of Opera gets you up-close and personal with an opera singer and pianist in a private recital. Just want some great entertainment? There’s always a performance waiting for you on Stream. Get started with Badu Gili: a free nightly sails lighting which celebrates the work and stories of First Nations artists.
The Sydney Opera House is Australia’s most-recognised cultural institution and a celebrated community meeting place. It is inscribed on the UNESCO World Heritage List as a masterpiece of human creative genius and a world-class performing arts centre.
The local Gadigal people knew the land on which the Opera House stands as Tubowgule, a reference to the creative energy liberated here. For thousands of years it has been a gathering place for storytelling, culture and celebration. We are committed to continuing that tradition.
The Opera House exists because a few brave people dared to think differently. They made the impossible, possible. We stand as a proud testament to the power of dreaming in public. To the transformative potential of art and ideas. We expand horizons, shift perspectives and stir emotions.
