Sightseeing Suggestion - Sydney Harbour

Today enjoy a cruise on Sydney Harbour and a Tour through the Sydney Opera House.  Sydney Harbour is commonly referred to as the most beautiful natural harbour in the world. A large harbour with many bays, inlets and secondary harbours, it has not been built out like many of the world's great harbours. Although there are exclusive homes dotted around the water's edge, there are large tracts of parklands, reserves and gardens that balance the harbour environmentally.

At completion of the cruise, walk to the Sydney Opera House and join a tour through the Opera House. Designed by the Danish Architect, Jorn Utzon, it is one of the architectural masterpieces of the century. The first performance was in the Opera Theatre in 1973. The Opera House would be more aptly named the Sydney Performing Arts Centre as most evenings its theatres offer a combination of world class music, dance, and drama and opera performances. This 45-minute tour offers the opportunity to experience the Sydney Opera House in its daily operation, and, learn about the fascinating history and architecture. At the completion of the tour, walk to the hotel.
