Coastal board walk at Bondi Beach.

Bondi to Coogee Coastal Path

This iconic coastal path is iconic for its picturesque views and being one of the most photographed locations in Sydney. This sandy stretch between multiple beaches, parks and clubhouses boosts year-round sea views, rock formations and dramatic waves, let alone the incredible events and exhibitions such as Sculpture by the Sea that are displayed during warmer seasons.

Lime stone light house with a sunset background.

Barrenjoey Lighthouse

This epic mountain-meets-sea backdrop is worth the trek out to Ku-ring-gai Chase National Park. The heritage-listed 19th-century lighthouse marks Sydney’s most northerly point and will give you stellar views across the hourglass peninsula and Palm Beach. The climb is short but steep; a leisurely 20 minutes will get you up the stairs but well worth the 360-degree panoramic views of beautiful beaches, the surrounding national park and the waterways of Pittwater.

 

Harbour view looking up at the Sydney Harbour Bridge.

Mrs Macquarie's Chair

Want a postcard-perfect Sydney pic but can’t stand the crowds at the harbour? Then look no further than to Mrs Macquarie's Chair. This famous landmark is found on the foreshore of the Royal Botanic Gardens and features uninterrupted views of the Sydney Harbour Bridge and Sydney Opera House nestled among the city skyline.

Observatory Hill

There isn't a better way to spend a weekend than strolling through the historic streets of the rocks and finishing on top of Observatory Hill. A divine Sydney sunset spot to watch the sun melt away into the waters of Sydney harbour.

Park bench with a magnificent skyline view of Sydney CBD.

Dudley Page Reserve

This popular sunset spot is a spectacular way to view the sunset due to its neat view over the Sydney skyline. Located in Dover Heights, this large park has expansive grassy areas for perfect for families with a fun but relaxed atmosphere.

 

Palm trees lead up to the huge smiling faced entrance to Sydney's Luna Park.

Milson’s Point/ Luna Park

Luna Park, Sydney’s colourful fairground, will make for a fun-filled sunset spot, but just around the corner is Milson’s Point – a photographer’s dream. Teeming with parks, lookouts and gorgeous views looking back onto the Sydney Harbour it is no wonder this has become a must-visit, photo-worthy location for all.

 

Stunning multi-coloured sunset over the ocean.

Cockatoo Island

As Sydney harbour’s largest island, set at the junction of the Parramatta and Lane Cove rivers, Cockatoo Island is steeped with rich Australian history and culture. From being a traditional Aboriginal fishing spot to a convict prison, a naval training facility to now a flourishing and thriving tourism spot. Since being opened to the public in 2007, Cockatoo Island not only hosts tours, campsites/glamping, heritage holiday houses along with yearly festivals and events but it is the perfect location for family adventures and picnicking at sundown.

 

Visitors meander around Bare Island's military fortification.

Bare Island

A tiny islet connected to the La Perouse coastline by a 130-year-old wooden walking bridge, Bare Island is certainly a unique place to explore and picnic. Although the island is home to a heap of old military fortifications, there are still plenty of grassy patches to lay down a picnic rug, plus word on the street is, there’s some great snorkelling in the surrounding waters, so don’t forget your flippers!
