Time Out Sydney

This event has finished

Spend a summer’s night sleeping in Sydney’s sculpture by the sea

Move over John Hughes films and an epic tub of ice cream, this summer the Opera House can trump just about any sleepover you've ever had. The Big Summer Sleepover is a slumber party for families beneath the world’s famous sails.

80 lucky competition winners will be taken on a backstage tour of the House, followed by dinner with stunning harbour views.

They'll then be transported to the world of magic with seven of the world's greatest magicians at The Illusionists, before dozing off to sleep in the Concert Hall's Northern Foyer, which offers stunning views stretching from Farm Cove through to Rose Bay. The next day when you wake, you will be greeted with breakfast in the Green Room.

Visit the Opera House on Facebook, enter your details and cross your fingers for the chance to win two tickets to the coolest sleepover in town.
