Panoramic View of Sydney Feb 22, 2013
From on top of the hill where the Sydney Observatory stands in 'The Rocks' area of Sydney you get a wonderful panoramic view of the Sydney harbour, the bridge and northern Sydney.

This is one of my favourite places in Sydney to sit and read and book and enjoy the sights and sounds of the thriving city of Sydney all around me. Traffic rushes past on the right, headed for the iconic bridge, Droves of enthusiastic Asians take pictures of every blade of grass, boats chug past on the water down below, The Rocks residents go about their daily affairs, hard-working Sydney-siders flock to the hill for organised workout routines. The atmosphere up here is wonderful.

If you want to get a postcard-worthy picture of Sydney this is the place to take it. Or even if you just want somewhere nice to read your book. This is it! However, this is from the left of the bridge so the Opera House cannot be seen from here.
