5 best places to photograph the Sydney Opera House - Pat Kay Away

If you’re travelling to Sydney, the one thing you absolutely must capture is the Sydney Opera House.

After all, it is Sydney’s most photographed building and arguably one of the most beautiful landmarks in the world.

Being in the heart of the harbour, there are plenty of vantage points to capture this wonderful building, giving you plenty of options for both sunrise and sunset.

Sydney is also one of the more fortunate cities in the world where, due to its location further away from the equator, the sun’s position changes when it rises and sets as the seasons change.

Regardless of the time of year you come, there’s bound to be a great photograph to be had here.

Here’s a list of the 6 best places to photograph the Sydney Opera House
