Our guide to Sydney Opera House Guided Backstage Tour

Have you ever dreamed of taking centre stage in an iconic performance venue that’s famous throughout the world? Treading the very same boards as the likes of Cate Blanchett, Luciano Pavarotti, Ella Fitzgerald and Dame Joan Sutherland? On a Sydney Opera House Backstage Tour, you’ll do all that and more.

An early departure ensures that visitors can access the inner sanctum areas' which are restricted later in the day when performers and technical crews are at work.

Your guide will lead you through this UNESCO World Heritage-listed building and through its hallowed theatres and behind the curtains to step foot on stage.

Once you've uncovered just a few of the mysteries of the backstage world and had your fill of insider secrets, enjoy a full hot breakfast served in the Green Room, the private domain for performers and staff alike (breakfast is served in the Opera Kitchen on Sundays when the Green Room is closed).


Daily, year round.
