Why locals recommend it
With its radical form—referencing the sails of a boat—this iconic building has global significance as well as local. Admire it from a distance, get up close to examine the intricate tiling, or step inside and dine at Bennelong, one of Sydney’s best eating experiences, under a soaring, airy ceiling with views of the harbour. One of the world’s most significant buildings. You’ll get an appreciation for the story behind the architecture by taking the fantastic backstage tour—something we should all do. There’s a complex, compelling history here, that highlights the difficulty experienced when radical thinking and true innovation seek to create something remarkable.
