Sunset and Skyline spots in Sydney, Australia

The 5 best spots in Sydney to see a Sunset with Skyline

Which are the best places to watch the sunset in Sydney? Where are the most amazing views to take a picture of the skyline of the city? Can I enjoy both together? The answer is YES and here you have my 5 favourite spots to begin a chilling aussie arvo with a red and orange background. ♫♫ Some relaxing vibes ♫♫ and a bottle of wine or beer to share are always welcome to complete those free and beautiful shows in Sydney ;-)

1. Milk Beach

  • How can I find the spot? Check it HERE
  • Extra info: You should walk to Milk Beach from Rose Bay and enjoy the short but beautiful coastal walk. Stop in the other cozy beaches like Queens Beach to get different views of the skyline.

3. Dudley Page Reserve

  • How can I find the spot? Check it HERE
  • Extra info: This park is one of the best places in Sydney to enjoy a picnic or just to share a bottle of wine/champagne in front of the city. Try to find the right photo frame “on the swing“ and you will get a unique image (Tip: Kids area). If you walk or cycle the surroundings of Dover Heights with no rush you can find some other secret hills with great views of the city.

4. Camp Cove Beach

  • How can I find the spot? Check it HERE
  • Extra info: Before enjoying the sunset near the kiosk you can walk up the road from Camp Cove to explore Watsons Bay area with all the amazing cliffs, its emblematic Hornby Lighthouse and other minimalist views.

5. Mrs Macquarie’s Chair

  • How can I find the spot? Check it HERE
  • Extra info: As you can see in the pics this is the place where you will get “THE Sydney Sunset pic”. You will find a stunning dusk behind the Harbour Bridge and the Opera House: the most iconic view of the most famous city in Australia. Some people watch it from the rocks on the right close to the water (2nd photo), others prefer to watch it from the park on the top but I recommend you to enjoy the sunset from “the little cave” (1st photo). When the sun is gone you can follow the waterfront path to the Opera House and finish your day with some affordable beers and the best night views of the city. Those are my favourite venues in Circular Quay area: Opera Bar, Glenmore Hotel (top terraze) or O Bar (rotating restaurant in a 47th floor).
