Opera House facts

  • Australia is famous for its climate and that extends to the Opera House too. The Sydney Symphony Orchestra has to ensure the concert hall is a steady 22.5 degrees for the instruments to stay in tune. 
  • The original budget for building the Opera House was $7 million, but by the time the building was finished 14 years later the final cost was $102 million.
  • The Opera House hosts a whole range of events: back in 1980 Arnold Schwarzenegger won his final Mr. Olympia bodybuilding title here.

Go City is a better way to sightsee. Your pass includes this tour, plus admission to dozens of top Sydney attractions for one money-saving price.
