This is a very nice place for views of the bridge especial;;y during sunset. Best part is that its not flocked by the loads of tourists and hence offers a very peaceful and tranquil vantage point to laze around and relax with your loved ones.

I stayed in Sydney during my uni life, but only discovered this place when I went back for a visit after a few years. This place has a beautiful view of Sydney Harbour Bridge, and it's worth the effort to find/get there - it's pretty near the Rocks. Great place for photos - it's a regular for bridal shoots. A...

Had some time finding the road up to this hill. View is good includes view of Harbour Bridge and Luna Park. Quiet and relaxing place. Everything became even great with the surprise proposal from my man all the way here! 😁

We went to observatory hill I order to visit the observatory. The views from behind the observatory are great, especially the harbour bridge and harbour. The weather was great and could see this being a good place for a picnic. Peaceful and not to busy. The observatory is free and also worth a visit while you are there.

This is one of my favourite places to go take a break from the urban jungle. Overlooking the Sydney Harbour Bridge and north shore coastline. Pleasant place to visit during day or night. It is also easily accessible as it is only a short walk from The Rocks.

This is one of the most easily accessible and beautiful places anyone can find in Sydney city region. This is an amazing place to visit if you like city sky view's, prefer capturing beautiful city landscape images and love nature. Interestingly, some of the newly wedded couples come here to capture their wedding photos. Conclusively, its wonderful place to visit... More
