The Sydney Opera House is located at Bennelong Point and spending some time exploring it is one of the top things to do for first-timers in the city. This performing arts center is the venue of more than 40 shows and events every week. Did you know that it took 14 years and 10,000 workers to complete this structure? The opera house is next to the business district of Sydney and the Royal Botanic Gardens. It’s also near the Sydney Harbour Bridge. The structure has a capacity of 5,738 and has several venues that include a drama theatre, a proscenium theatre, a concert hall, a playhouse, the Utzon Room for parties and functions, a recording studio, and an outdoor forecourt. Millions of visitors from around the world come to enjoy the shows and performances each year, and around 300,000 join the guided tours. If you visit the opera house, you can choose from our list of hotels with a view of the Sydney Opera House.

Other popular picks in Sydney:

  • Bondi Beach: This is a must-visit attraction in Sydney, especially if you’re a beach lover. This world-famous beach is known for its laidback vibes and quality surf. The beach also features the Bondi Baths, a 50-m (164.04-ft) pool ideal for laps by the ocean.

  • Sydney Harbour Bridge: Another spot you must not miss during your Sydney trip is this bridge, which is considered the largest steel arch bridge on earth! Nicknamed the Coathanger, the bridge is located on a natural harbor and offers breathtaking views from its top, which you can experience through BridgeClimb Sydney.

We handpicked these listings carefully, considering (wherever possible) recent guest reviews, location, accommodation type, prices, availability of dates, decor, and access to views. The image galleries get refreshed with the latest updates regularly. They were last updated on June 24, 2024.

About the Sydney Opera House

The Sydney Opera House takes pride in its position on the UNESCO World Heritage List and is one of the world’s most renowned and frequented performing arts centers. Despite being a strikingly modern structure, the building has adopted the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals, being the first of its kind to do so in the country. Aside from hosting excellent performances and shows, the opera house also offers interesting workshops and learning programs for all ages!

Tips for visiting:

  • To reach the venue, you need to travel to Circular Quay, which can accessed by public buses, trains, and ferries. There are parking spots for bikes and non-motorized vehicles on site, and it's mandatory that you safely stow them away without disrupting the pedestrians. The Sydney Opera House also offers an accessible buggy service for travelers with mobility issues and a bus for elderly visitors. You can find out more about these on the official website.
