With iconic feats of engineering such as the Sydney Opera House and Harbour Bridge, plus natural landscapes like Bondi Beach and the Blue Mountains, it’s no wonder the world has turned its lens upon Sydney. Hordes of tourists pour into this ridiculously photogenic city every year to snap their pics and send ripples of FOMO back home through social media.
Because after all, if you didn’t ‘gram it, did it even happen? Society’s answer is a resounding no! While we always recommend taking in your holiday with your own two eyes, it’s silly to think you won’t be taking your fair share of pics, so let us list off the most Insta-worthy places in Sydney.
Bondi Beach and Bondi Icebergs Club
If a beach is famous enough to get its own TV show, then you can bet your Insta likes this is a place worth visiting. You also get the added benefit of framing your shot from the Bondi Icebergs Club, the iconic Oceanside saltwater pool where surf and lanes meet. You have to pay an entry fee to access the pool, but you won’t be able to find those photogenic angles anywhere else.
Capture the turquoise waters of the pool against the backdrop of the rolling surf as the waves break against the sweeping stretch of white sand. Now that’s a pic sure to get some Insta love.
Sydney Harbour Bridge
An obvious but necessary mention, the Sydney Harbour Bridge practically takes stunning pictures of itself. For the best vantage spot, consider tackling the bridge climb to snap panoramic views of the river and city. For shots of the bridge itself, we recommend taking them from Luna Park, or if you want to capture the sun setting behind it, try taking them from Kirribilli.
Stroll past this charming laneway connecting George Street and Pitt Street to take a simple, yet attention-grabbing shot of the 50 birdcages suspended between the buildings. This intriguing artwork symbolises the many birds that were forced to leave the area due to aggressive urbanisation.
Sydney Opera House
We couldn’t finish this article without mentioning Sydney’s most famous landmark. To find the best shots of the strange collection of sail looking structures that drive tourists crazy, head to the other side of the harbour to make sure you can fit the entire building in the shot.
