Sydney Opera House Tours
Sydney Opera House is a global landmark, part of Australia’s DNA and the emotional heart of the city of Sydney. It is a place of excitement and of warmth, of welcome and wonder, where art and architecture uniquely combine to enchant and enliven artists, audiences and visitors.
One of the most popular visitor attractions in Australia, Sydney Opera House welcomes more than 6 million people to the site each year. More than 500,000 people take a guided tour to explore the magic inside.
In June 2007, Sydney Opera House was formally recognised as one of the most outstanding places on Earth with inclusion on the UNESCO World Heritage List. It is the companies vision to transform Sydney Opera House into a “must do” for every visitor to Sydney. But you haven’t “done” the Opera House if all you’ve done, is simply take a photo. Sydney Opera House wants people to come inside and experience the magic.
