Top 7 Sydney Locations for Instagram
As some of you may know, I love Sydney. From amazing food, to cool things to do, and of course, really beautiful locations. Some places really just… takes my breath away.
If you are visiting Sydney, and are keen on snapping some nice photos for the insta, here are 7 locations in the Sydney CBD you must check out and get clicking:
1. WYNYARD STATION - INTERLOOP
This is the old wooden escalator that used to be at Wynyard station, now turned art installation.
TIP: Come here on the weekend as it is less crowded and busy. During the weekday, especially peak hour, there are always people around so I’d be more difficult to get a picture without people in it.
2. ANGEL PLACE - FORGOTTEN SONGS
Once you walk down the alley way towards Angel Place, you’ll see a bunch of empty bird cages hanging down. This piece of artwork is called forgotten songs because you hear the sounds of the birds that used to inhabit Sydney before it became the city it is now. The songs sound different during the day as opposed to during the night.
TIP: there are heaps of amazing restaurants nearby, so check out angel places either before or after you grab a bite!
3 THE STRAND
The Strand is a place for shopping and dining, and is also very architecturally beautiful. One of my favourite coffee places, Gumption Coffee, is also located in the Strand (which if you love coffee too, I highly recommend you visit).
TIP: go up to level 2 and take a photo from top down.
4. QUEEN VICTORIA BUILDING (QVB)
Of course I cant go through this list without talking about the Queen Victoria Building. This is an amazing establishment with over 200 different shops, restaurants and cafes. Go up to level 3, and just like at The Strand, take a shot from top down.
5. CHINESE GARDEN OF FRIENDSHIP
The Chinese Garden of Friendship is a quiet sanctuary tucked away in the middle of Sydney CBD, right in the middle of Darling Harbour. Tickets cost $8 AUD for an adult to enter, but if you are looking for a break from the hustle and bustle of Sydney’s Central Business District, then this place is it! There are loads of water dragons (or as I’d like to call it, giant lizards) but for the most part they’re pretty harmless.
6. PYRMONT BAY WHARF
Now this is actually one of my favourite places – it’s got amazing views, but it is usually relatively empty. I used to run here every Tuesday with the run club at my old corporate job, but that’s another story. Cross the Pyrmont Bridge and you’re here.
Tip: Budget some time to visit The Star and check out the casinos there. Better yet, if you are looking to treat yourself, check
7. LUNA PARK
And last, but definitely not least – head to Luna Park for absolutely amazing views of the Harbour Bridge and the Opera House. Everytime I am in the vicinity I have to take photos here. Luna Park is free to enter so you can pose with the ferris wheel and the wooden roller coasters as much as you want.
Tip: if you walk towards the direction of North Sydney, you’ll get to Lavender Bay and Wendy’s Secret Garden, and trust me – the views there are also equally breath taking.
