When the Sydney Opera House became a UNESCO World Heritage-listed site in 2007, it was hailed as "one of the indisputable masterpieces of human creativity, not only in the 20th century but in the history of humankind". Now it's your turn to step inside this iconic landmark and discover the stories behind Danish architect Jorn Utzon's remarkable achievement. Join this very special one-hour guided tour into the intricate workings of a living, breathing Opera House.
Explore the hallowed theatres and foyers where more than 1600 concerts, operas, dramas and ballets take place each year with an experienced guide to lead you through every aspect of the building's 14-year creation and 58-year history. You'll run your hands over the world-famous shell tiles, take a seat in the elegant custom-made white birch timber chairs and marvel at the vaulted ceilings of one of the biggest pillar-free chambers in the world. Once you've visited areas off limits to the general public and captured photographs from rare vantage points inside the majestic Sydney Opera House, you'll realise that from the outside you're only getting half the story. Afterwards, relax and enjoy a delicious tasting plate for two overlooking sparkling Sydney Harbour. Find yourself seated at the Portside Restaurant, where the tables look across to Circular Quay and the Sydney Harbour Bridge. With a sumptuous three-tiered sample menu (subject to change) consisting of fresh sushi, succulent prawns, plank-roasted salmon, delicate mini wagyu and chicken burgers, dumplings and more, it's the perfect way to end your Sydney Opera House discovery before your chosen Sydney Opera House performance.
