Your guide will lead you through this UNESCO World Heritage-listed building and through its hallowed theatres and behind the curtains to step foot on stage. Once you've uncovered just a few of the mysteries of the backstage world and had your fill of insider secrets, enjoy a full hot breakfast served in the Green Room, the private domain for performers and staff alike (breakfast is served in the Opera Kitchen on Sundays when the Green Room is closed).

Important Information:

Valid for 19MAR19-31MAR20:
- The Sydney Opera House is undergoing a decade of renewal. Work will commence effective immediately to improve pedestrian access at the site entrance and areas near the roundabout at the end of Macquarie Street. During construction there will be temporary impacts on vehicle and pedestrian movements between the Opera House Gatehouse and the Macquarie Street Taxi Stand. Available traffic lanes at the end of Macquarie Street will be reduced to one lane each way. The width of the turning circle at the roundabout will be temporarily reduced. At the Sydney Opera House Gatehouse drop-off lanes will temporarily reduce from two to one. This will reduce available drop off space and require some vehicles to continue back around the roundabout to complete a drop off further up Macquarie Street. During various times, sections of the Macquarie Street footpaths between the Taxi Stand and the Opera House will be closed to facilitate construction. The eastern footpath and western footpath will be alternately closed at different times. One footpath will remain open at all times to allow passengers to walk between the Taxi Stand and the Opera House. A temporary pedestrian crossing to the south of the Taxi Stand will be in place to allow passengers to cross the street as required. For the footpath closure a fence barricading the footpath will be next to the pedestrian crossing, with clear signage indicating to use the other footpath. It will be obvious for pedestrians who reach the barricade and can then follow the directional signs to cross the road. There will be minimal impact on pedestrians.
