Great Synagogue

The Great Synagogue of Sydney is reputed to be the finest synagogue in Australia and one of the most beautiful in the world. A Sydney landmark since 1878, The Great Synagogue is an impressive building with Byzantine and Gothic architectural features and an elaborate carded façade. Its arched entrance is dominated by a beautiful wheel window looking out over Elizabeth Street in Hyde Park. Its interior is highly decorated with coloured glazed windows, mosaic inlaid floors, intricate carvings, and gilded stars on the ceiling. It is an important Australian cultural institution and has a National Heritage Listing.

  • View the impressive interior and get a better understanding of the history of the Great Synagogue by taking a guided tour, held regularly at noon on Tuesdays and Thursdays.
  • Walk down Elizabeth Street from the synagogue to the famous Sydney Hyde Park and along its impressive fig-tree-lined avenues to the centre fountain to have a picnic lunch under the trees.
  • From Hyde Park, visit one of the many Sydney attractions bordering the area including the Australian Museum, Supreme Court, Hyde Park Barracks, and St Mary’s Cathedral.

Cosmopolitan Sydney has excellent transport links with nearby international and regional airports, local and interstate trains, and good connecting highways. Regional and interstate bus lines arrive from many destinations. Sydney’s public transport system is extensive with many bus routes, a subway rail system, and above ground rail routes. While there is an excellent road network, Sydney suffers badly from traffic congestion and car parking is expensive. Getting to the Great Synagogue is easy via public transport with nearby metro rail stations and Elizabeth Street has many bus routes running to and from eastern suburbs and the city central.
