Sydney Opera House During a Walk.

Sydney, Australia. When people think Sydney one of the first things they think of is the Opera House. It’s an iconic building built-in 1973 and visited by people from all over the world. It’s a UNESCO World Heritage Site and hosts more than 1,500 performances of the arts every year.

During the one day layover I had last year, I walked along Circular Quay, Sydney and Farm Cove and wherever I looked, there was a photo to capture of the Opera House.

Shot from Mrs. Macquaries Point, a romantic spot opposite the Farm Cove where many shots of the Opera House and the Sydney Harbour Bridge can be captured together.

Walking along the east side of Sydney Cove, looking out towards the harbour, you’ll find more great shots of the bridge and Opera House together.

The Opera House and all of Sydney is great to see and capture up-close. I need to have a longer stay there next time. What places would you recommend capturing photos of the Opera House from? Of Sydney itself?

  1. Absolutely beautiful shots of the Opera House Aaron! Brought back great memories. I remember shedding tears of joy the 1st time I saw it!

    If you ever go back, take a ferry from Sydney Harbour and you will be left speechless while you admire the beauty!

    Another place I recommend is Sydney Tower, amazing views from the top. Too bad I didn’t have a good camera back in the days.

    Thanks for sharing! 😉

    • Thanks Karla! It was amazing to see that and the city up close. Thanks for tip! Love being on the open water and up-top tall buildings in big cities. 🙂

  2. If you stand up in the park directly in the front line of that last shot of the Opera House, the effect is of Conquistador’s hats. Not what the architect intended I am guessing 🙂
