The Best Views of Sydney

Home > Sydney > Tours
Published December 13th 2010
It sometimes seems as if the locals of Sydney are obsessed with views: the view of the Harbour, the view of the Opera House, or the best view in town. In a city famous for its picturesque outlooks, the question remains as to how mere mortals without the prime real estate in town can enjoy the sights.

The obvious answer? Get to the highest point that you can find.

For a thrilling experience as well as a stunning view, it might be a good idea to take a ride on the Sydney Seaplane. For $170 per person, with a minimum of two adults, you can take off from Rose Bay and take fly over Sydney's beaches, including Bondi.

It is also possible to extend the simple 15 minute package in order to see the Northern Beaches. The trip will cost $235 per person, with a minimum of 2 adults, but the flight will take you on a much more scenic journey.

If you aren't a fan of flying, or you baulk at the cost for such a short trip, you might consider visiting the Gap Park at Vaucluse, where you can take in the full glory of the cliffs of the headlands of Sydney - before wandering down to the beaches for some fish and chips.

If, however, you are more interested in a view of the city, your best bet is one of the famous Sydney landmarks: Centrepoint Tower. As Sydney's tallest free-standing structure, the Centrepoint Tower (also known as the AMP Tower or Sydney Tower) is the perfect location to take in the urban landscape of the CBD.

The Centrepoint observation deck is equipped with 18 binoculars so that you can get a close look at the major landmarks. The tickets will set you back $24.99 for adults and $14.99 for children, but the view will be not be easily forgotten.
