No Trip To Sydney Is Complete Without An Opera House Tour

By Kylee Smith

Normally when we think of Sydney, Australia, one thing comes to mind; a distinctive looking structure that lies on the harbor and outlines the landscape of this unbelievable city, known as the Sydney Opera House. Even for those people who have never been to Sydney, this is an impressive landmark and one that many can point to with ease.

Strangely enough the Sydney Opera house is significantly younger than other buildings in Sydney, although due to its exceptional design has become an emblem of Sydney since it opened in 1973. It was crafted by a Danish Architect, Jorn Utzon during the reign of Queen Elizabeth II and cost $AU 102,000,000 to put together. It’s been a image of Sydney ever since with its unique arched design that pulls to points at the top it’s a one of a kind design and for a structure this small in height appears to hold it’s own with the more pristine, massive structures like the Empire State building and the Eiffel Tower.

The Sydney Opera House is at the top of almost all vacationers must see list for their visits to Sydney and over two hundred thousand individuals tour the opera house every year. Each of its 1000 rooms presents guests with a special experience and as many as 2 million people every year attend the activities held in this landmark.

While the Sydney Opera House may perhaps, initially, look smaller than some other landmarks with this kind of notoriety, it in reality is a massive structure with more than a million tiles on the roof alone. The building itself, spans about 120 meters in width and approximately 185 meters in length as well as uses over 6,000 square meters of glass which lends itself to fantastic sights of both the harbor and the city.

Even today there is continually something happening at the Sydney Opera House a location where quite a few distinctive travelers assemble to enjoy the over 3,000 events that occur on site annually. A building as rich in culture as this, in architectural and historical value, the Sydney Opera House is the place to go if you’re touring Sydney, Australia. While this building is amazing to look at even from the outside, the inside is stunning as well and a trip to Sydney wouldn’t be whole without taking a complete tour of the Sydney Opera House.
