The basics

The space itself has a remarkable place in Australian national history—it once served as government stables, remnants of which you can see in the architecture today. The conservatorium is home to five different event spaces, whose world-class acoustics are ideal for seeing concerts. Part of the school is located underneath the Sydney Royal Botanic Gardens, so combine your visit with a wander around these gorgeous gardens, which offer walking tours that let you delve deeper into Aboriginal heritage.

Where to watch live music in Sydney

It’ll come as no surprise that Australia’s cultural capital has a thriving music scene—there’s always a concert taking place in the city somewhere. The Sydney Opera House is undoubtedly the most iconic music venue—you can book a tour of the interior if you haven’t managed to bag tickets to a performance—but other lesser-known places such as the Metro Theatre, the Hordern Pavillion, and the bohemian Red Rattler are all perfect spots to catch a gig.
