Getting There

Public Transport

Many buses, trains and all ferries stop at Circular Quay. It is then a 10 minute walk to the Sydney Opera House. The Sydney Opera House operates a transit shuttle for elderly and less mobile passengers between Stand E at Circular Quay and the Concourse. Visit the Transport Infoline for timetable and fare information.


Taxis can drop off passengers at the roudabout at the end of Macquarie Street, and can be hailed from the taxi rank at the end of Macquarie Street after performances.


Wilson's Sydney Opera House Car Park is located at the northern end of Macquarie Street with vehicular access adjacent to the Forecourt. Opera Australia subscribers are offered a discounted parking rate. Being a public car park, spaces may not always be available, and please note that the car park is open 24 hours.

Accessible Parking

A limited number of parking spaces are available to holders of an RTA Mobility Parking Scheme Permit at the Sydney Opera House vehicle concourse near Stage Door. Please book a space as early as possible by phoning (02) 9250 7185. Drivers can drop off passengers with mobility difficulties at the turning circle beside the Monumental Steps. Vehicles should then be parked elsewhere. If passengers require staff assistance to enter the building, please notify the Gatehouse as you enter the Sydney Opera House precinct.
