My family visited the Australia in 2002. We started in Melbourne then to Surferes Paradise, (Cairnes), Canberra, then Sydney. Every place we visited was quite different. Melbourne is a working city with lots of industry and a very rich and cosmopolitan cultural center. Cairnes has a beautiful sandy beach that goes for miles and miles. We stayed with my wifes cousin on the coast outside fo Canberra. There are numerous zoos in the larger villages. I recommend a visit to one of them. My young daughters were allowed to go in with the roos and hand feed them. They also got to hold a baby Wombat. Sydney is the Jewell of Australia the Opera house is beautiful. From the area around the Opera House you can view the rest of the photo points of the city. I can't wait to go back and see other parts of the country.
I really enjoyed the tour...You'll get an inside scoop and view of the Opera House that random people will not get by just walking up to it and taking pictures. The interiors are getting 70's-ish, but I shouldn't knock it for that. This building is a masterpiece.

The tour is BORING! seriously. BORING! You only go into the Concert Hall and the Theatre. 1/2 the time is spent standing in the foyer because they are setting up for the night. The facts you hear are all in the brochures outside of the Opera House. Its just facts, after facts, after facts. B.O.R.I.N.G! The people you are with are the elderly anyway & they take a long time to walk up the many many STAIRS! Even they looked very bored! The poor kids we were with were just dying!
You don't have to pay to see pretty much the same exact stuff that we saw. Especially since you are NOT ALLOWED to take pictures inside, so I'm already having trouble remembering what it looked like.
Save your money. Australia is very expensive.
I was truely impressed with this historical landmark.
I was'nt able to attend a show within the opera house,but from just looking at it from the outside, I can only imagine what it was like on the inside.
We saw the ballet Giselle recently in the Opera Theatre of the Opera House. In my opinion the chairs could have been a little more comfortable, but the acoustics and sightlines were good. And the performance itself was great. Before the start, the toilets were jam-packed, and we even had to stand in a sloooow queue to leave the place at the end.
This newly renovated Victorian boarding house is budget accommodation at its very best. The welcoming hallway of stripped pine and
stained glass is a delight, and all rooms are tastefully furnished. Needless to say it is very popular. In ...
