View detailed information on accessible services at Sydney Opera House. Some information is provided below.

Courtesy Wheelchairs
A limited number of courtesy wheelchairs are available one hour before performances for patrons attending events in the Concert Hall and Opera Theatre.  They are available by the entrance of the new corridor through to the Western Foyers (at the top of the escalators).

Front of House staff are happy to arrange for patrons to borrow these wheelchairs but are unable to leave their posts to assist patrons moving around the Sydney Opera House. It is therefore strongly recommended that patrons who do not normally use a wheelchair bring a friend or companion along to assist them in manoeuvring the wheelchair around the House.

Front of House Staff are not able to assist patrons in transferring to seats or to provide personal attendant services.

Assisted Listening Devices
FM Radio System
This has been recently installed and replaces the Infrared system. It gives even coverage throughout all theatres.  Patrons will need to get a headset from the nearest cloakroom.  Patrons will be required to give cloakroom staff a driver’s licence or credit card as security.  These will be returned when the headset is returned.  The headset consists of a small radio receiver and ear plug headphones.

Assistance Animals
Guide Dogs or any animals trained to assist people with disabilities are welcome inside all areas of Sydney Opera House including theatres and restaurants.

Transport and Parking
View information on public transport to Sydney Opera House.  View information on our free transport service designed to assist elderly and less mobile customers from Circular Quay.
