The re-opening of the new Bennelong restaurant at the Sydney Opera House today will boost the hospitality and tourism offering at one of Australia’s most iconic locations, according to the Tourism & Transport Forum Australia (TTF).
“The Sydney Opera House is estimated to be worth $4.6 billion to the Australian economy, and the opening of Bennelong today will serve to further bolster its visitor offering and status as a must-do tourist icon,” TTF CEO Margy Osmond said.
“The new restaurant, to be operated by the Fink Group, will also boost Australia’s reputation as a gastronomy super-power. Almost all of the produce will be sourced locally, ensuring a unique Australian cuisine experience for domestic and international visitors at a unique Australian destination.
“The new restaurant will enhance the overall visitor experience at the Sydney Opera House, adding to the already expansive food and wine offering available.
“Bennelong will give diners a range of innovative options, from fine dining through to more casual meals, ensuring there is something on offer to cater for every occasion.
“It will also enable guests to have a special experience either before or after they take in a world-class performance from one of Australia’s performing arts companies, including the likes of the Australian Ballet, Sydney Theatre Company, Opera Australia or the Sydney Symphony Orchestra.
“Bennelong is a truly wonderful addition to this truly iconic location,” she said.
