Experience description

Designed in an expressionist style by the Danish architect Jørn Utzon, the Opera House finally opened in 1973, 15 years after construction began. A troubled and controversial project, eventually resulting in Utzon’s resignation, the building received international acclaim, winning numerous architectural awards and in 2007 was made a UNESCO World Heritage Site. It has now become one of the busiest centres for performing arts in the world, with over 1000 performances annually, attended by more than a million people. This exceptional tour will give you a valuable insight into the construction process, the inspirations behind it, and the difficulties that had to be overcome. Plus of course it’s incredibly photogenic - you’ll find it easy to get a great shot here.

Before reaching the Opera House however, you’ll enjoy a professionally-guided coach tour of the harbour area. Sights of interest include Mrs Macquarie’s Chair, a lookout point carved from sandstone rock that gives unbeatable views of the harbour bridge; the famous Bondi Beach and its surfers; the monorail and the aquarium, and various suburbs in the eastern area. A vital introduction to Australia’s best-known city, and one you’ll always remember.
