The Opera House, one of the most popular icons of Sydney and undoubtedly the city's symbol (the sails of the opera house is the most recognizable images among tourist spots in the world!) is a glowing example of Sydney's growing artistic and cultural pursuits.

Many events - musical, entertainment, plays, etc. are held here to add prestige to any undertaking! Opera is not the only main item featured in this architectural marvel. Famous artists, musician, painters, etc. from the world over hold concerts, launch projects and showcase their talents in a most magnificent venue amidst an equally scenic setting with views of the Harbour and the other spots Sydney is famous for!Aside from its first class amenities, there are cafes, restaurants offering all sorts of tastes and cuisines, as well as plenty of shopping opportunities to the showgoer or the tourist.

There are tours on offer too like backstage tour, Asian tour, etc. They even have interpreters for the popular Japanese tourists.

Be prepared to negotiate the many steps leading to the main hall of the building!

Address: edge of Circular Quay, far end of MAcquarie St.
Directions: You will not miss the sails of these magnificent structure as they glow in the sun near Circular Quay!
