So what Sydney Harbour sights should you see?
The Sydney Harbour Bridge and Sydney Opera House
Just everybody who comes to Sydney for the first time are naturally very keen to see the Sydney Harbour Bridge and Sydney Opera House. The fact is you will see them over and over again if, as you should, plan to spend some time on and around Sydney Harbour.
Where to take photographs
A favourite spot to view and take photographs of the Sydney Harbour Bridge is from the Sydney Opera House. A great way to return the compliment is to climb the Sydney Harbour Bridge Pylon and take pictures of the Sydney Opera House, Sydney Harbour and Sydney's Skyline from an unparalleled vantage point.
Sydney Harbour Bridge Pylon Lookout
From the Sydney Harbour Bridge Pylon Lookout you should be able to see all the way through to Sydney Heads. You might find yourself wondering how Sydney looks from the entrance to Sydney Harbour.
Watsons Bay near Sydney Heads
There's one way to find out and that's to visit Watsons Bay in Sydney's the Eastern Suburbs. Watsons Bay is near South Head, the entrance to Sydney Harbour. To the east is the Tasman Sea and to the west is the Harbour with a glorious view of the city of Sydney in the distance. Watsons Bay is where Governor Phillip first landed in Australia. It's also recognised as Australia's oldest fishing village, having been established in 1788.
Watsons Bay is famous for being the home of the first Doyles Restaurant. The site on which the restaurant now stands is where Doyle originally sold his daily fish catch in 1845. It's well worth the trip to Watsons Bay to eat at the restaurant or, alternatively, for a more informal meal, buy a take-away lunch from Doyles' fish and chip outlet, located on the wharf, and eat it in the park and feed the seagulls.
