a seven-night holiday in Australia, plus tickets to the Sydney Opera House
The Sydney Opera House. It’s one of the world’s most famous sights, synonymous with New Year’s Eve countdowns and Olympic celebrations, an icon as Australian as the didgeridoo and a sight on everyone’s bucket list.
And this month, we’ve teamed up with Opera Australia to give one lucky winner and a pal the chance to enjoy a seven-night luxury holiday in Sydney, plus tickets to a live performance at this classical-music high temple.
You’ll jet off to Oz with Qantas and be chauffeured to a plush four-star hotel in Sydney’s Central Business District, an easy stroll from the sights — Circular Quay, Harbour Bridge and the Opera House itself. Spend the week exploring the city: uncover its indigenous past; seek out its hip hole-in-the-wall bars; go surfing at Bondi; or just embrace the laid-back Aussie lifestyle, sipping coffee at a Surrey Hills cafe or picnicking in the park.
The highlight of the trip, though, is sure to be your night of drama at the Sydney Opera House. Choose from family favourite The Magic Flute, by Mozart; Gounod’s Faust, a timeless story of temptation and tragedy; La Bohème, Puccini’s 120-year-old tale of love and friendship, given a racy ’30s twist; Tosca, an operatic thriller set against the backdrop of war; or Puccini’s much-loved Madama Butterfly, guaranteed to make your heart flutter.
