Access Strategic Plan

Sydney Opera House belongs to everyone. As an organisation, our goal is to provide barrier-free access, making the site, building and the experiences they offer accessible to all people.

We are committed to the following accessibility guiding principles:

  • Access solutions promote the principles of social equity & inclusion, while reinforcing positive community attitudes about people with disability;
  • Access issues are addressed early in the planning stage of new initiatives;
  • Preference is given to access solutions that achieve integrated & independent access (e.g. people with disability use the same access routes as people without disability);
  • Initiatives comply with relevant disability access standards & legislation;
  • Access audits to determine access requirements for all areas & key initiatives;
  • Consultation with people with disability for all key initiatives;
  • The latest technologies should be considered to provide flexible, multisensory access solutions (both interpretive & physical); and
  • Access solutions must comply with the Sydney Opera House’s heritage requirements.
