  • Overview & Itinerary


    Get a different perspective on one of the world’s most iconic buildings on the Sydney Opera House Tour.

    Expert guides will lead you around the interior of this architectural marvel. Designed by the Danish architect Jorn Utzon, the Sydney Opera House was 13 years in the making because of differences between Utzon and the Australian government.

    Step inside the theatres and foyers where over 2,500 performances are staged each year and learn about how the unique design benefits acoustics.

    The Sydney Opera house tour is a wonderful way to learn more about this postcard image of Australia.


    Your Sydney Opera House Tour starts from the Tour Meeting Point located on the Lower Concourse level outside the Sydney Opera House gift store.

    Your guide will bring to life the amazing stories behind this miracle of architecture and engineering. Working with new, rich audio-visual components, where images are projected onto the fabric of the building, your guide will take you on an exhilarating journey, engrossing you in a story to rival any opera plot with its dramatic twists and turns. Some 1,500 performances, from opera to circus, rock and cabaret, are staged each year to audiences of around 1.5 million.

    The Sydney Opera House Tour ends in the Box Office Foyer.
