The Opera House tour experience
If you are coming to visit Sydney to the first time it will be impossible to miss the beautiful and timeless curves of the Sydney opera House. Whether you fly over it as you arrive or enjoy it from your hotel window or as a backdrop on an evening meal or Sydney harbour cruise it is a landmark which will grab your attention and make you look again and again. The beautiful sail like facade changes during the seasons and during the day, reflecting the light and begging to be photographed from every new angle it reveals. But. if admiring from a far is not enough for you and you want to get more intimately acquainted then a Sydney Opera House Tour is for you. It is also the only way to get inside without having tickets to a performance or event. It is wonderful to walk the entire way around the base and get up close to the exterior facade, especially at dusk, but to get inside the tour is essential. The Opera House tour is a 1 hour walking tour with headsets to ensure you don’t miss anything. Group sizes are kept to around 12 and you will hear all of the fascinating stories about the architect Jorn Utzon, the dramas and conflicts, the huge construction challenges that were overcome, the reaction of the Sydney public at the time and the ultimate triumph of this UNESCO listed landmark. There are plenty of opportunities to stop and take photos and a variety of media is utilised to tell the stories. The tour does get you inside some of the performance spaces but this varies based on the season and schedule at the time of visit.
