View the city from behind the wrap-around windows or step out onto the 268-metre high Skywalk for an uninterrupted view of the city. The famous landmark houses restaurants and an observation deck and can hold as many as 960 at capacity. Let us know prior to your stay if you'd like to book the entrance fee for a discounted price. *Subject to availability”

“A pleasant walk over the bridge to take in the Iconic City views. Drive to luna park area, leave the car and walk over the bridge.  When you come back, head to Kirribilli RSL for good prices on food and great city views. ”

Island
“Just 15 km south of the CBD, Bare Island was one of the set locations for Mission Impossible II and many people don’t know about it. The island is connected to the mainland by a long bridge, which I love taking photos underneath of for a unique perspective. A historic fort dominates the island, and the grassy space is an extremely popular backdrop for wedding photos. You’ll be in the suburb of La Perouse, very near Sydney Airport, so if you like plane-spotting, it’s the ultimate place to photograph aircraft coming in to land. The area’s also popular for scuba diving, so venture underwater for great aquatic shots of puffer fish, squid, and sea dragons.”

Historic Site
“In 1950, this Harry Seidler-designed home was the most revolutionary house in the country. Australia’s architectural lineage is rooted in Britain’s Federation style, but this perfectly preserved example of the Bauhaus movement looks like it’s landed from outer space—it makes no attempt to link with its bushland surrounds. Book online for Sunday tours. The upper North Shore is a moneyed, suburban area of generously sized blocks. The area offers insight into another side of Sydney—the sense of nature offers a really different urban experience. Explore the area and try the Butcher’s Block café, a popular local spot for coffee or lunch.”
