Sydney Opera House

The Sydney Opera House, located at Bennelong Point on Sydney Harbour, is an architectural landmark. Not only that, but it is also a world-class working opera house that hosts a variety of modern and traditional ballet performances.

The Sydney Opera House first opened its doors in 1973 by Queen Elizabeth and now hosts over 1,600 performances every year.

The world-famous sails are also turned into bright canvases for digital light shows, such as the world’s largest festival of light, which takes place in May and June.

Day or night, you may stroll around the courtyard of the Opera House and marvel at the remarkable structure, which uses seawater from the harbour for both cooling and heating.

Daily guided tours are given in English and a variety of other languages at the UNESCO World Heritage Site. Take a look behind the scenes at Australia’s most renowned performing arts complex to learn about its unique stories.

Jørn Utzon, a Danish architect, designed it, but an Australian architectural team led by Peter Hall constructed it.

The Sydney Opera House is now one of the most-photographed buildings in the world because of its unique design and shape.
