When looking for the best things to do in Sydney, the iconic Sydney Opera House is almost certainly at the top of every sightseer’s list. It’s less than a 10-minute drive from the Sydney Boulevard Hotel to the Opera House, whose unique, sail-shaped roof defines the Sydney Harbour foreshore, just a few minutes’ walk from bustling Circular Quay. You can take a relaxing stroll around the base of the Opera House, and call in to the stylish Opera Bar for a cocktail or coffee against a backdrop of stunning Harbour Bridge views. World-class performing arts companies, including the Sydney Symphony Orchestra, have their home at the Opera House, which offers a year-round programme of contemporary music, opera and dance. Bennelong is the sophisticated on-site restaurant, set in an atmospheric, high-ceilinged space and specialising in innovative Australian dishes prepared by acclaimed chefs. Behind-the-scenes tours of the Opera House run daily, offering a glimpse into the history of this famous Sydney attraction.
