personal phone number onto the Opera House in protest, and turned up last night to block out the Racing NSW ad by shining torches on it.

With 2GB breakfast host Alan Jones at the centre of the storm - for stridently advocating for the use of the Opera House to promote the Everest Horse Race and calling upon its CEO Louise Herron to be sacked - Goa has produced boards offering him free use of its "real billboards".


During the interview last Friday Jones berated Herron, asking "who do you think you are?" repeatedly.

New South Wales Premier Gladys Berejiklian says she's been left upset by the furore surrounding the Sydney Opera House being used to promote a horse race and has called for people to maintain some perspective.

"The Opera House guidelines have from time to time been amended, whether it's for other sporting events or other causes".

A protest is being planned for when the projection takes place, at 8pm on Tuesday night.


The apology comes as the Change-org petition pushing support for Herron and for the Opera House to remain "billboard free" now has more than 235,000 signatures and was delivered to NSW state parliament this morning.

Thousands of protesters have taken to the forecourt of the Sydney Opera House taking a stand against the controversial "Everest" light show.

"The use of the Opera House for the commercial advertising of this event is a completely unsatisfactory and is an inappropriate use of this significant heritage place", council chair Stephen Davies said in a letter to the premier on Tuesday.

"The Opera House management has approved exemptions under the Heritage Act to make these types of decisions", the spokesman said.
