Expand your horizons, and your tastebuds

You’ve seen the outside but that’s only half the story. Beneath our magnificent sails lies incredible spaces and stories. Learn about the controversial history, unforgettable performances and exciting future of the Sydney Opera House. Walk through and see the House up close and personal. Each perspective brings a unique and breathtaking experience.

After the tour enjoy a show-stopping meal at either the new House Canteen or Opera Bar. Take in some best views of Sydney Harbour while you enjoy lunch from our special Tour and Dine menu.

You will have the opportunity to visit some of the Opera House's many venues and theatres on this tour. Please note that as we are a busy performing arts centre, venues and theatres are subject to availability at the time of your tour.

House Canteen

Nestled beneath the sails, House Canteen is a new all-day, canteen inspired dining venue with show-stopping harbour views. House Canteen offers a vibrant pan-asian, flavour-led experience. Take a seat under the sails for inventive and fresh food with a view.

Opera Bar

Reflecting the spirit of Sydney, Opera Bar is relaxed and stylish with a sunny disposition that celebrates the seasons and shares local favourites. Fresh, seasonal and sustainable, the menu showcases Australian suppliers and provenance and seafood is the star.
