Opera House Markets

Home > Sydney >
Published December 17th 2008
Every Sunday from 9am to 5pm the Sydney Opera House Markets are held on the Opera House forecourt.

There are around 40 stalls in the market consisting of Sydney-based artists and crafts people.

Here are some pictures of the market.

The market is worth a browse if you've not been before as you will find some talented artisans selling their wares.

It's also a good opportunity to take a stroll through the Royal Botanical Gardens next door.

The Botanical Gardens are an amazing attraction right in the centre of Sydney which far too few Sydneysiders take advantage of, and the ideal spot for a picnic.

So why not take a stroll around the markets and then retire to the Gardens, find a peaceful spot under a tree with a view of the harbour, fill your tummy with delicious pinic goodies, and then have a peaceful slumber or read a book.

Once you have digested the olives and pesto then make your way through the gardens to the NSW Art Gallery where the Monet & The Impressionists exhibition is showing.

Not only is this a great chance to see some world class art, imbibing the soft style of the impressionists is a fitting way to end such a relaxing day.

Here are some maps of the Gardens so you can find your way around.

Also remember that the gallery closes very early at 5pm, so make sure you get there at the latest by 4pm to allow enough time to view the exhibition.


Why? A lazy way to spend a sunny afternoon.
