Love at first sight

Plan an immersive day of culture and history, or drop by for a drink — you'll always remember your first visit to the Opera House.

Whether you're here for a full day of exploring, or only have a few minutes to spare, here is what you can do to make the most of your visit to Sydney Opera House. 

Here for 30 minutes?

Take that picture perfect selfie on the steps with the sails in the background. Why not grab a coffee at Portside before walking down the Western Boardwalk to see if a seal is bathing in the sunshine? Or, to just enjoy the brilliant harbour view.

Here for an hour or two?

Why not step beneath the sails on a Sydney Opera House tour and discover where the magic happens. Tours run for an hour, and after your tour — we recommend enjoying lunch or dinner at one of our many harbourside restaurants.

Staying the whole day?

Make the most of your Sydney Opera House experience by starting your day with a Sydney Opera House tour where you will venture beneath the sails to discover our working performing arts centre. Then enjoy a delicious meal at one of our many harbourside restaurants before seeing a show. There is so much to see and do at the Opera House and with a whole day, you can experience even more!
