    Sydney Opera House

    Declared a World Heritage Site in 2007, the Sydney Opera House is the most famous and most photographed of Sydney’s landmarks. The Opera House was designed by Joern Utzon, a Danish architect who endured such a long and troubled construction phase that completing the building was deemed a miracle. You may book a guided one hour tour each day between 9am and 5pm.
