10 spots to make amazing Sydney Opera House photo

Sydney`s most iconic building – Opera House. It amazes me each time I visit Sydney Harbour. I will never ever get bored with this view, it’s just beautiful. All the events happening at The Opera you can check on the official website here.

You might want to take a great photo with Sydney Opera House and here I come to give you some tips!

1. Opera Bar

The photo shot from here will be great in busy night or as well as in early morning, when it’s empty.

2. Walkway to Opera Bar

The photo will be similar to above No.1, but from a bit of a distance. This will give you different perspective on the Opera.

3. Opera House stairs

The close look at the Opera and it`s white shells. The photo angle options are almost unlimited, so you can take actually many unique photos without moving from the location.

4. Royal Botanic Gardens

Just passing the gate to the Gardens from Sydney Harbour you can make a stunning photo right at the beginning. The more you walk here more great photo opportunities you will find. Don’t forget to walk around Miss Macquarie Chair.

5. Ferry ride

Take a ferry to Watsons Bay or Manly and you will see Opera House from all the possible perspectives.

6. Park Hyatt Sydney

The key to capture a great photo is to adjust your camera in the way that you will see Opera House reflection in the windows of the hotel. Personally, I love the night photos in this location.

Just sit on the bench opposite side of the Opera, before MCA Gallery.

8. Shangri-la Hotel

If you are the guest of the hotel and have Sydney Harbour window view, you can get creative and make amazing photos. Alternative place for Sydney Opera House photo is from level 36 in Altitude Restaurant or Blu Bar. Enjoy the food and drinks.

The views from the other side of the Harbour Bridge is beautiful! If you want, you can get two Sydney’s iconic marvels in the same photo – Opera House and Harbour Bridge (just need o take a different angle than I did on photo below).

10. Cremorne Point

Cremorne is another great suburb to admire Sydney Harbour view. You can get the full Sydney skyline on your shoot with Opera House along with Harbour Bridge. I recommend sunset picnic time!
