The Opera House and Harbour Bridge- The opera house is one of Sydney’s iconic symbol’s and a must see for every tourist. A great way to experience both is to watch the sunset at Opera Bar, located just outside the Opera House, and watch the sunset and the harbour bridge.
You can also take a tour of the opera house, and if you get a chance and enjoy theatre or opera, why not book in a show? You won’t be disappointed.
The bridge is simply magnificent to look at. But, however if you are a little more daring, why not going on the bridge climb and walk to the top of it? It truly has to be one of the best vantage points to take in the entire city of Sydney.
