This is a great little park with an iconic view of the Sydney Opera House seen under the Sydney Harbour Bridge, flanked by the Sydney city and North Sydney skylines. Awesome at any time - my favorite is sunrise, but weekends are good with the harbour alive with ships, cruiseliners, ferries, boats and the night view is worth a look... More

The combined view of Harbour Bridge and Opera House snuggled beneath it is breathtaking from this vantage point. You have to have a personal vehicle to reach this un-crowded place. There is a short track along the coast where you can stroll and view CBD from entirely different angles. A small park provides for a leisurely watching a train crossing... More

A lovely small area with an interesting view back across the harbour to the bridge and Opera House. Play ground equipment for the children. We walked down from North Sydney station (about 20 minutes downhill) but there seemed to be lots of parking there as well.

Blues Point Reserve may not be as overhyped or publicised as it deserves to be, but don't underestimate it, its a must see, best kept local secret and most certainly the best vantage point for magical, surreal, spectacular Harbour Bridge & Opera House views. It is very easily accesible, has free parking, is close to a ferry stop, has grassy... More

Was recommended by a Local Sydney friend as the best place to view the Harbour bridge and Opera house and also best place for viewing the Fireworks on NYE. He was right ... it is the best! Interesting place at night with so many cars driving in just to sit and take in the view.

If you are looking for a beautiful spot in Sydney for a picnic where the views are spectacular visit Blues Point. The park is beautiful and laps the waters edge. Parking is FREE for up to 4 hours or perhaps go by ferry to McMahons Point just next to the park which is also near Luna Park. Views of the... More

One of the top spots in Sydney to park your car and enjoy the view of Sydney. A small unremarkable park with million dollar views. Park your car and take photos or sit back and enjoy Sydney Harbour. Great photo opportunity for the Sydney Harbour Bridge and the Opera House. You can also walk around to Luna Park and the... More

This little known reserve, at the bottom Blues Point road, offers a different but great view across Sydney Harbour towards the Sydney Harbour Bridge and the Opera House on the distant side. A nice reserve to sit back, relax and watch the water craft on the harbour. There is also a small toilet block in the reserve.
