The best thing to do in Sydney

story by: House of Travel

The Sydney Opera House. And everything that comes with it. 

The Australian International Music Festival
Arguably one of the most recognised structures the world over, the Sydney Opera House is visually astounding, but what it beholds in beauty it also delivers in world-class acoustics. The annual Australian International Music Festival is the ideal opportunity to experience the enchantment that exists inside this phenomenal building. 2017 marks the 28th occurrence of the festival, with an average 900 – 1,300 participants and a deluge of international talent to impress. Featuring choral, wind bands, jazz bands and orchestral groups from as far as Japan, Singapore and the USA, step inside and spoil your ear drums. You’ll be in as much awe inside the Sydney Opera House as you will be standing beneath its iconic sails. Held between July 9-16, 2017, this one’s a knockout on every level.

Handa Opera
The spectacular Handa Opera takes place on the Sydney Harbour water's edge and within the botanical gardens. The Sydney Opera House and Harbour Bridge will serve as your backdrop for this evening under the stars, as the harbour-front site is transformed into a dynamic moving set within an intimate environment in which you're treated to soaring operatic numbers and brilliant costumes.

Dining ​with views of The Opera House
When in Sydney, the aptly named Waterfront Restaurant is a great place to start your opera-filled evening. Located in Sydney's funky Rocks district with a backdrop of stunning views of the Sydney Harbour Bridge and Opera House. This eatery serves Australian cuisine, with decor inspired by the country's seafaring past.

Dining at The Opera House
For an alternative Sydney opera experience, head to the Opera Kitchen at the Sydney Opera House, which boasts magnificent views along with a delicious range of meals. Whether it's a burger you're craving or a tantalizing Asian-inspired dish, you'll find it here, all the while gazing upon some stunning vistas beneath the sunshine.
