Let's start with the icons. The Sydney Opera House is one of the 20th century's most famous and distinctive buildings and designed by Danish architect Jørn Utzon. The Sydney Opera House is a multi-venue performing arts centre with events ranging from orchestral performances to comedic events.
Located on Bennelong Point on Sydney Harbour, between Sydney Cove and Farm Cove, adjacent to the Sydney central business district and the Royal Botanic Gardens, and close by the Sydney Harbour Bridge, it's all about location location location!
It doesn't matter which way you look at it, the Sydney Opera House it simply amazing. If you're interested in architecture and ticking World Heritage sites off your bucket list it's definitely worth while getting in on one of the reasonably priced guided tours or guided tour/ dinner/ show packages (check out TripAdvisor).
I love visiting the Opera Bar located just out the front of the Opera House. The Opera Bar boasts fantastic view of the Harbour Bridge whilst you sit back, relax and enjoy a bevvy or two at any time of the day. It does get busy on sunny days but is a must do if you want to experience everything Sydney has to offer.
For great photos of the Opera House the best vantage point is a Ferry (see photo), Mrs Macquarie's Point or Dawes Point Park. Each one of these offers up a different and unique view that's sure to make family and friends back home jealous of your trip to the Harbour City.
