Where to stay near Sydney Opera House

Exploring Sydney Opera House

Stunningly set on Bennelong Point and overlooked by the Sydney Harbour Bridge, iconic Sydney Opera House is one of the world’s most famous performing arts theatres. Now a UNESCO World Heritage site, the spectacular building was designed by Jorn Utzon and premiered as a multi-arts centre in 1973, soon becoming Sydney’s landmark and a major tourist attraction. Its unique roof design draws on Sydney’s long maritime heritage with its resemblance to the billowing sails of the ships which brought Australia’s first settlers.

The venue is home to four resident companies, Opera Australia, the Australian Ballet, the Sydney Symphony Orchestra and the Sydney Theatre Company. Over 1,500 diverse performances take place every year, attracting an audience of over a million in total. A similarly huge number of tourists visit the site, and the nearby Sydney Harbour Bridge, Darling Harbour, with its museums and tourism facilities, the Luna Park theme park and the Royal Botanic Gardens all make for a great day’s sightseeing.
