Embrace your inner bartender at Opera Bar

Escorted by your own personal Sydney Opera House guide from Stage Door, start your journey with a cocktail-making class hosted by one of Opera Bar’s master mixologists. Learn to craft a House favourite, the Sydney Sling, and then take a moment to enjoy your creation over a fresh seafood tasting plate – courtesy of their in-house Raw Bar.

Get hands on at Opera Kitchen 

Make your way to Sydney’s newest market food hall for an appetising salumi plate, schmiddy of beer and some fine views. Then learn something new and enjoy an open air chef-led class on how to master a salmon poke bowl. The best part? You get to eat it afterwards.

Come behind the scenes between courses  

A quick stop before your main is served. Behind a hidden door, watch unforgettable moments from past Concert Hall performances, and learn about the history and future of this world-famous hall in an immersive digital experience with 270-degree visuals and surround sound.

Settle in for a leisurely lunch at Portside Sydney

Portside Sydney will dish up a succulent 12-hour braised Riverina lamb shoulder, served with sheep’s curd, sundried tomatoes and minted peas. Paired with a seasonal side dish, bread and matching wine from the Hunter Valley, we can’t think of a better spot for lunch with some of the Sydney’s best harbourside views.

Indulge in dessert and jazz at Bennelong

Last stop is under the sails at Bennelong Restaurant for a signature dessert by Executive Chef Peter Gilmore. New to the menu, the Chocolate Crackle is a fun take on the classic, bringing you an epic mix of flavour, texture, and plenty of nostalgia.

This cracking dessert is paired with live music performed by Australian jazz musicians’ part of Bennelong Presents Sunday Jazz series. Fancy a last drink? You’re welcome to purchase as you go.
