Blues Point Reserve provides a beautiful, relaxing view of the city. We sat on one of the benches eating a pizza from the pizza shop up the road and just drank in the view. It was not a busy park and seemed to be mainly frequented by locals due to its somewhat secluded location on the lower north shore. It... More

Located at the end of Blue's Point road in North Sydney, this vantage point gives a clear view of the harbour, the opera house, luna park and the bridge. I love to watch the sunset here, the trains crossing the harbour bridge, and the ferries crossing the harbour, weaving their way through the sail boats. There is parking available but... More

From here, you can see the Harbour Bridge, the Opera House and all the boating activities on Sydney Harbour. You can find a spot on the grass for a picnic, whether it is during the day and especially at night. Without doubt, it is one of THE places where you can get a fantastic selfie with Australia's greatest landmarks.

This is one of my favorite places to visit in Sydney and I go there regularly. You can picnic, use the kiddies playground, go for a walk along the foreshore around Blues Point to Waverton and Balls Head. Just a quick drive for lunch in the car is enough because which ever way you decide to spend your time at... More

With the sun getting more northerly Blues is getting harder to get the best shots. But for a "harbour bridge and opera house" in one shot this is the spot for the AM. The park itself is a bit ordinary, and the parking sparse if it's a good day. But well worth it for that classic #ilovesydney view

A wonderful view of the harbour from the north side. Nice for a picnic, lunch at one of the establishments.

Sydney has so many wonderful spots like this to see the views of the city, Opera House and Harbour Bridge. It is one point further around than Milsons Point and Kirribilli and as such misses the in-your-face shot but it is still stunning. The high rise buildings take a little of the gloss away.

Right beside Luna park, this view has the harbour bridge, Sydney opera house and skyline to left and right. The perfect spot for a picnic on a sunny day!

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
