Description

 Sydney Opera House Backstage Tour
This is the only tour that grants unprecedented VIP backstage access to the Sydney Opera House. Your personal guide will raise the curtain on what really goes on beyond the spotlight. Revealing industry secrets that you will not hear anywhere else. You will walk in the footsteps of legends. You might even get to stand on the world-famous Concert Hall stage. You’ll most certainly get a sneak peek inside the stars’ dressing rooms. This intimate tour concludes with a hearty breakfast in the Green Room*, the private haven of some of the world’s most famous artists.

 Taronga’s Wild Australia Experience
After breakfast, you’ll experience an exhilarating private Water Taxi ride to Taronga Zoo across stunning Sydney Harbour. Upon arrival you will enjoy a Kookaburra’s eye view of the animals from the Sky Safari, followed by a guided interactive tour that puts a spotlight on Australian Wildlife. You will learn about some of the most weird and wonderful creatures on earth. There are plenty of photo opportunities with koalas, kangaroos, wombats, and more. This iconic experience concludes with a distinctly Australian morning tea at Treetops Café. Explore the rest of the zoo at your leisure, knowing your return ferry to Circular Quay is included.
