7 OF SYDNEY’S BEST BEACHES

Sydney is incredibly blessed with some of the most famous and beautiful beaches in the world – all that sand, sparkling blue ocean and a water temperature that never dips below mild. It’s entirely understandable why spending the day at the beach is a favorite pastime of Sydneysiders. Whether it is summer or winter, you can always find a handful of people on any beach at any location throughout the city. Sydney is blessed with well over 100 beaches in the city, ranging in size from a few meters to several kilometers, located along the city’s Pacific Ocean coastline and its harbors, bays, and rivers. Underneath I will show you 7 of my favorite and most pretty beaches that are in Sydney. From the uber-popular Bondi, Manly, and Palm Beach to the small and oh so pretty Gordons bay or Balmoral Beach.

PHOTO OPPORTUNITY GALORE IN KIRRIBILLI

Last weekend my friend Kim and I took advantage of a break in the cold winter weather and headed over to Kirribili near the Sydney Harbour. This place really is a photo op galore, from heart-stopping beautiful views of Sydney’s Harbor, the Sydney Harbor Bridge, Sydney Opera House, and the cities sensational skyline….There are just too many photo opportunities.

The Sydney opera house is probably one of the most iconic buildings in the world! Who has not seen the iconic images of the unique building at Sydney’s harbor?

I for example always thought it was 1 large building, but there are instead 4 separate buildings! Mind is blown, right? The other week on a lovely sunny autumn day, I took my fancy pants DSLR camara to Circular Quay and took some pictures of this building up close! Curious what it looks like then read on….

A couple of weeks ago I ventured over to Taronga Zoo Wharf for some sunset photography. I am sure you guys must be getting tired of my attempts to take decent pictures, but hold your horses cause here is another one of those posts. This was a very beautiful sunset though that just kept on giving and just got better and better as time went on. So what can you do then just keep taking picture after picture! I ended up with more than 300 pictures of just one silly sunset.

SYDNEY’S MILLION DOLLAR VIEW | OBSERVATORY HILL AT NIGHT

For a park with a million dollar view, it’s hard to go past the one on Observatory Hill. The park offers sweeping, panoramic views of Sydney Harbour and the Harbour Bridge right in the city center. Which sounds like the perfect night out for me and my trusty camera. So on a cold summers evening (Sydney, what the heck are you doing), I went to Observatory Hill for a sunset and night shoot. In his post, I will show you some of my best shots as well as some advice on what works and what does not work.
