The Sydney Opera House Access Tour

Go beneath the sails and discover what makes the Opera House so inspiring.

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 Access Tour is designed for patrons with limited mobility, and we offer Australian Sign Language Interpreters on request.

“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.
