The Sydney Opera House sits on Bennelong Point, a promontory on the south side of Sydney Harbour. It was named for Bennelong, one of two Aboriginal leaders who served as liaisons between the first British settlers and the local communities in Australia.

Designed by Jorn Utzon and completed by a team led by Australian architect Peter Hall, the Sydney Opera House is an architectural masterpiece. Its iconic roof, shaped to resemble billowing sails, is one of the most recognisable structures in the world.

The Sydney Opera House is one of Australia's most famous landmarks and is its number-one tourist spot. It is also a multipurpose performing arts venue that hosts music concerts, ballet performances, and opera that draw crowds from all over New South Wales and the rest of the country. The 2,679-seat Concert Hall is Sydney's largest venue that regularly hosts symphony concerts and popular music shows. There are three theatres in the complex, all of which can host performances that range from small musicals to large stage productions. The Forecourt is the main outdoor performance area of the Opera House complex. There is also a recording studio and several restaurants within the premises, as well as guided tours where you will hear many fascinating stories about the history of the Opera House and Bennelong Point.
