Wowee this is an amazing opportunity to get a backstage view of what has to be Our Most Famous House - The Sydney Opera House. Sunday 18 October sees the Opera House open it's doors to the public for you to partake in an amazing range of activities. Everyone is welcome from locals, travelers, frequent visitors to kids and adults.
The main feature of the day is the opportunity to go on a self-guided backstage tour and discover for yourself all the hidden nooks and crannies of the inside of this much-loved building. You will be able to check out the main stages (perhaps rehearse a song or two!), dressing rooms and the rarely seen behind-the-scenes areas.
There will also be surprises and performances for everyone to enjoy as you head around your backstage tour.
While exploring take some time to learn about the building's fascinating history and about the exciting renewal plans that are underway.
And why not finish the day by having lunch, dinner or a drink at one of the many famous eating and drinking spots in the area.

People came in droves for the backstage tour of the Opera House. When I got there, there was a continuous stream of people lining up and filing through for a look. A far cry from the usual twelve people maximum.
