Finding the Best Views in Sydney
Sydney is spoiled with some of the most incredible natural beauty of any city in the world, though just like anywhere else, there are some parts of the city that will give you a better view than others. The following are some of the prime spots to catch a look at this stunning city’s sights.
Get on a harbour cruise
To get a proper look at Sydney you are going to need to get a decent look at the harbour, and there is no better way to do this than by getting out on it. Harbour cruises will give you the best possible views of the Sydney Harbour Bridge and the Sydney Opera House, not to mention historical Fort Denison. Most cruises stick to the main part of the harbour, but if you can, jump on a cruise that gets out to the heads, as this striking entrance to the harbour is absolutely awesome.
Some of the best views of Sydney can be found on walking tracks around the city. The walk from Coogee to Bondi Beach offers some spectacular views of the rugged coastline, walks around The Rocks offer glimpses into Australia’s seedy past, and you can find gorgeous paths in pretty much every part of the city. North or south or the bridge, some of your best views are just going to require a little bit of legwork.
Rather than have to go looking for the best views, some waterfront apartments provide it for you. Serviced apartments in Sydney provide some truly unbelievable views, whether you stay in The Rocks, Mosman, Manly, Cronulla, Palm Beach or Five Dock. Being able to enjoy some of Sydney’s best views from the comfort of your apartment will make for an extremely relaxing visit.
Royal Botanical Gardens
Located just minutes from Sydney’s CBD, the gardens themselves are spectacular, not to mention that they just happen to be located on the shores of one of the world’s most beautiful harbours. No matter which direction you look from here you will be able to see some sort of Sydney landmark rising from the horizon, so to put a little greenery in the foreground of your awesome Sydney snapshots, check out the views from the Botanical Gardens.
North Sydney Swimming Pool
If you like to do a few laps once in a while, there is no more picturesque place to do a few than at the North Sydney pool. This pool is located almost directly underneath the harbour bridge on the north side of the harbour, and offers an incredible view that you won’t believe until you see it.
From atop the bridge
If you have the courage and the cash, the view from the top of the Sydney Harbour Bridge is breathtaking, and from here you can finally get a sense of just how big Sydney Harbour actually is. While not for the faint of heart, the bridge climb has become an extremely popular tourist draw, attracting thousands of people every year.
