Five decades of wonder

As the Sydney Opera House turns 50 in 2023, celebrate the extraordinary past, present and future of Australia’s favourite building. A World Heritage-listed masterpiece of “human creative genius”, from conception to completion, the building tested the limits of engineering, construction and design. Now, after half a century of creativity and a Decade of Renewal that transformed the building for the 21st century, the stage is set for the next era. Standing on Tubowgule, as it is known to its traditional custodians, the Gadigal of the Eora Nation, the Sydney Opera House provides constantly renewing experiences of contemporary art every day.
