This steel arch bridge in the city of Sydney, linking the North Shore and Sydney’s Central Business District (CBD) has become a poster image for the city and Australia alike. Accommodating train lines, cyclists, pedestrians and cars, the Sydney Harbour Bridge is a fantastic viewpoint for sunsets, offering stunning views of the city and surrounding waterways. Want to step it up a notch? Climb the Sydney Harbour Bridge with their ‘Twilight’ tour to see the city by dusk.

This week I've been very fortunate to travel to Sydney for work. As soon as we finish each afternoon I try to quickly rush out and see some sights before exhaustion gets the better of me. This was my view from observatory hill just after sunset. #observatoryhill #observatoryhillpark #sydneyharbourbridge #sydneyharbour #sydney #sydneygram #sydney🇦🇺 #sydneyaustralia #visitnsw #visitnewsouthwales #australia #australia_oz #australiagram #australia_views #australia_shotz #tourismnsw #olympusinspired #olympusomd
Over 80 years old, Luna Park is a Sydney staple with its harbour-side, easy access location and iconic character, sitting but a stones throw from the Sydney Opera House. Just one stop over the bridge from the CBD, this amusement park is a must-see for any visitor or family with its retro rides and charming atmosphere. Operating all year round, for those seeking a spectacular sunset, ride the ferris wheel at dusk to catch impressive views of the city from new heights. And, from 15th October 2017, park visitors can even experience ferris wheel first-class dining under the stars.
For a less touristy spot to catch twilight, Moore Park is peaceful perfection. Just three kilometres short of Sydney’s CBD, this park, which rests alongside of Centennial Park offers a wealth of attractions. Housing two of Sydney’s biggest sporting venues (Sydney Cricket Ground and Sydney Football Stadium) as well as a golf course and numerous sporting fields, schools, and an entertainment quarter which is home to Fox Studios, this park is bursting with life. Climb Moore Park hill for an unspoiled and serene view of the city, minus the crowds.
