The Harbour Bridge and Opera House
When it comes to sightseeing top of just about everyone’s list is the Harbour Bridge and the Opera House. But what other top attractions should you see? What are the top must see places that should be on your sightseeing list.
The Harbour Bridge, City and Eastern Suburbs
The City lays claim to the Harbour Bridge and Opera House for its own. Once you have taken your pictures of the Harbour Bridge and the Opera House from Circular Quay what then? Why not climb the Harbour Bridge Pylon Lookout. Apart from the great views of the Opera House and Harbour you should be able to see all the way to the Heads. The view from the Heads looking back towards the Harbour is arguably even better! More
Manly and the Northern Beaches
Manly Ferry – No. 1 when it comes to seeing the best attractions
The Manly Ferry is the No.1 thing to do. The ferry covers the ‘business end’ of the Harbour in terms of sights and attractions. The Manly Ferry service commences at 6am on a week day, and 8am at weekend and holidays, so you can see just how beautiful the harbour looks as the early morning sun reflects off of the water.
Manly Ferry at Midnight
Once the Manly Ferry has started work it doesn’t clock-off till midnight sailing every 30 minutes between Circular Quay and Manly Wharf.
The Harbour Bridge and the Opera House
If the sea is a little rough the trip may take a little longer than scheduled but don’t worry, the excitement and adrenalin of riding through the waves will make you forget time altogether. Not only do you get to see the Harbour Bridge and the Opera House at close quarters you can also feast your eyes upon… More
Taronga Zoo – A World Class Zoo in a World Class Location
When it comes to attractions it is hard to go past one of Australia’s best zoos. Not only does Taronga Zoo give you amazing animals to see but combines the experience with wonderful Harbour views. Some of the photographs you take here will be the ones you treasure the most. The Sky Safari is highly recommended… More
Once the beaches and the Harbour have been “done”, the next most common sight that everybody wants to see the see is the Blue Mountains (are the Blue Mountains really blue?). Whilst not really in Sydney, the Blue Mountains are close enough to be “claimed” as part of Australia’s true capital. The Blue Mountains is one of those places where you can really put your camera through its paces.
The Three Sisters in the Blue Mountains
The spectacular Three Sisters at Echo Point is a natural attraction that you can’t help but admire. The unquestionable beauty of this amazing rock formation changes throughout the day and throughout the seasons
Katoomba is the unofficial “Capital” of the Blue Mountains. The town has numerous cafes, shops and the Candy Store, an old-time lolly shop in nearby Leura, that attracts sweet teeth from home and overseas. More
Wine Tasting in the Hunter Valley
Australia’s top city is blessed with many sights and things to do but it also has a wealth of attractions and sights on its door step. Perhaps the most alluring is the Hunter Valley with its rolling hills, fine scenery and exquisite wine. More
