The Sydney Opera House tour

Saturday morning Anna, Kaitlin, Mike and I were at the Sydney Opera House ready to take on the 1 hour tour. Normal tickets cost $26 but if you buy online it’s $16 – however you have to go through the rigamoroll of creating an entire profile for this simple purchase. Rumour has it that this will be streamlined in the future. Tours in other languages are also available.


Although it’s for an hour the time flies, in part due to the walking between locations at the Opera House but is helped predominantly by the quality of the tour guide and the anecdotes which add flavour to the experience. Our tour guide, Mary-Ann, drew upon her wealth of knowledge from her years as an usher and guide in making the hour memorable.

Overall, I found the experience interesting and engaging and would recommend this tour to anyone. You may even have the chance to see the staff preparing a show. Afterwards and depending on the time you could take the opportunity to sit at the Opera Bar and have a drink on the edge of Circular Quay.
