  • 1 Hour Sydney Opera House tour (English)


  • When the Sydney Opera House became a UNESCO World Heritage-listed site in 2007, it was hailed as “one of the indisputable masterpieces of human creativity, not only in the 20th century but in the history of humankind”. Now it’s your turn to step inside this iconic landmark and discover the stories behind Danish architect Jørn Utzon’s remarkable achievement. What inspired him to base his revolutionary design on ships’ sails? How did he solve an engineering challenge considered one of the most difficult attempted anywhere in the world? You’ll find out on this very special one-hour guided tour into the intricate workings of a living, breathing Opera House
  • You will explore the hallowed theatres and foyers where more than 1600 concerts, operas, dramas and ballets take place each year and your experienced guide will be on hand to lead you through every aspect of the building’s 14-year creation and 58-year history. You’ll 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 of one of the biggest pillar-free chambers in the world
  • Once you’ve visited areas off-limits to the general public and captured photographs from rare vantage points inside the majestic Sydney Opera House, you’ll realise that from the outside you’re only getting half the story

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, 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. 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.
