Tours Notice
Updated 31 March

In line with decisions made by the National Cabinet as communicated by the NSW Premier Gladys Berejiklian, the Opera House is currently closed to the public until further notice to help protect the health of all visitors and staff and minimise the spread of COVID-19 (coronavirus) in the State.

Tour bookings up to and including 30 June will automatically be cancelled and refunded. Please be patient with our team who are working hard to process a large volume of requests as quickly as possible. If you have not received a refund by 30 April please contact us.

Future bookings from 1 July onwards will be accepted from 1 April 2020.

Please note, National Cabinet updates may affect the above notice, so we encourage you to regularly visit our website for the most up to date Tours information.

Thank you for your support and understanding at this time.  We look forward to welcoming you or your guests to the Sydney Opera House in the future. 
 

We believe everyone should be able to enjoy the Sydney Opera House, which is why we offer tours tailored to those who need a little extra assistance. The Sydney Opera House Mobility Access Tour is designed for patrons with limited mobility, and we offer Australian Sign Language Interpreters on request.


You will have the opportunity to visit some of the Opera House's many venues and theatres however please note the Concert Hall is currently closed as it is undergoing renewal works to improve theatre machinery, acoustics and accessibility.  Click here to learn more about the Concert Hall renewal works. 

“A detailed tour with entertaining and informed guides - I enjoyed it so much I might even do it again.”

Step Inside an Iconic Landmark

The Sydney Opera House is one of the world’s most recognisable landmarks and this is your chance to truly get up-close. Run your hands over the world-famous shell tiles, take a seat in the elegant custom-made white birch timber chairs and marvel at the vaulted ceilings. Visit areas off-limits to the public and capture photographs from rare vantage points.

Discover the Story Behind its Creation

Be led through every aspect of the building's 14-year creation and 58-year history. Delve into the stories behind Danish architect Jørn Utzon's masterpiece. What inspired his revolutionary design? How did he solve its engineering challenges to realise his vision?

Explore a Living Opera House

Step inside and explore theatres and foyers where more than 1600 concerts, operas, dramas and ballets take place each year. If you're lucky you might even catch a graceful ballet dancer rehearsing, or feel the vibrations of a sound-check in the Concert Hall.
