Sydney Opera House Accessibility

    I am planning on visiting Sydney Australia next year and of course want to see the Opera House.  However, I use a power wheelchair.

    Do you know if the Opera House is wheelchair accessible?  Are there places that are not accessible, or is it mostly fine?

    The big draw is seeing it from the outside obviously, but is I can go in it will be a nice bonus 🙂

    Hi there!

    Actually, you’ll be happy to hear that the Opera House is now fully accessible!  It was recently announced in the Sydney Morning Herald.

    The building upgrades which are part of the Opera House’s Decade of Renewal works have been done by seamlessly inserting a new passageway through utilities and back of house spaces using historic precast floor finishes, brush box timber cladding and bronze trim elements to make the works blend almost indistinguishably into the existing building.

    Enjoy your trip!
