Go behind the scenes of one of the world's most famous icons with a guided Sydney Opera House tour and explore possibly the most recognisable building Australia has to offer. Designed by Danish Architect Jørn Utzon, this UNESCO World Heritage-listed site boasts a unique design, adding to its allure. This architecturally exquisite building is located on the edge of the Harbour, surrounded by other world famous icons such as the Sydney Harbour Bridge. Hailed as “one of the indisputable masterpieces of human creativity, not only in the 20th century but in the history of humankind”, with one glance, it's not hard to discover why.

Step inside the Opera House and you'll be mesmerised by the furnishings and decorations that line the interior of the building, adding to its sophistication and charm. Hosting approximately 1600 entertainment events annually including operas, dramas and ballets, viewing one of these shows in the hallowed theatres is a must. Take a seat in the custom made white birch timber chairs, run your hands over the world-famous shell tiles, or simply gaze at the vaulted ceilings of one of the worlds biggest pillar-free chambers, all this and more is possible in this fantastic tour.

In this one hour tour you'll be hosted by your knowledgeable guide, who will educate you with impressive facts of this unmissable building, including the architectural and entertainment history. Enjoy the NEW immersive digital experience with 270 degree visuals and surround sound. Tours currently run on Sunday, Monday, Thursday, Friday and Saturday at selected times.

A great experience. Very well organised and informative. Our tour guide was full of a wealth of knowledge, interesting facts and even went out of her way to let us see the final Joan Sutherland theatre which was in use until our tour ended, so she stayed with us later to let us in after our tour slot. Would recommend.

We really enjoyed the tour
Rachelle Deans 2 years ago

We really enjoyed the tour, especially going into the biggest theatre. Our guide was very informative and added her humour along the way. It was great having the headphones so it was really easy to hear everything she said. The architecture of the building is just so amazing.

I would definitely recommend this tour to both Australians and international travellers
Chloe 2 years ago

I would definitely recommend this tour to both Australians and international travellers. The Sydney Opera House is truly a modern marvel and architectural feat... and the project was nearly abandoned. You will learn about this and more during the guided 1 hour tour which takes you behind the scenes into the various foyers with stunning views of the harbour. The highlight was sitting inside three venues - the Joan Sutherland Theatre, Playhouse and the Concert Hall which is sometimes not possible. On the day, they were setting up for a concert in the Concert Hall so we couldn't take photos but were still allowed in the venue. One thing people should be mindful of though is that there are a lot of stairs throughout the tour so do keep that in mind when booking this tour.

This tour is a five star and an essential for anyone in Sydney whether being a tourist or a resident
Sandra Sheen 2 years ago

This tour is a five star and an essential for anyone in Sydney whether being a tourist or a resident. It was absolutely fascinating and so interesting. We even got to see the Sydney Symphony Orchestra practising. Our tour guide was brilliant and extremely knowledgeable. Highly recommended!

The kids didn’t think they would enjoy this but they did
Patricia Ward 3 years ago

The kids didn’t think they would enjoy this but they did. I loved learning about the opera house and the building process. I have shared my experience with family and highly suggest everyone to do a tour. You appreciate the building more when you know all about it.

We made this tour and it was so amazing
Lourdes Perez-Iñigo 3 years ago

We made this tour and it was so amazing. The guide explained to us some of the history of the Opera house building and it was so interesting. The tour was 1 hour time and we really enjoyed it.

We had such a lovely day at the Opera House with my mom but I assume maybe add some more details and also visiting more parts of opera house can make this tour fantastic
Donya Ghanbari 5 years ago

We had such a lovely day at the Opera House with my mom but I assume maybe add some more details and also visiting more parts of opera house can make this tour fantastic, I really liked It but also I prefer to have this chance to get some artistic photo in some parts. Thanks, Experience Oz for this lovely evening.

The host of a number of world-class events including Ballet, Symphony and Opera, with the assistance of your knowledgable tour guide, you'll learn all there is to know about the Opera House!
