Postcard from Sydney Tower

June 29, 2011 in Australia,New South Wales,Places,Postcards

Sydney is a gorgeous city, thanks to its idyllic harbor location and year-round sunny skies. However, you tend to soak it up at ground level: terraced houses in Glebe, the iconic Bondi Beach, in the streets of downtown Sydney. It wasn’t until I zipped up to the top of Sydney Tower until I realized just how beautiful Sydney really is. Brilliantly blue skies stretched out over the curving harbor, distant Blue Mountains and parks wedged among skyscrapers.

    Very pretty! One day I plan on living there :)

  • I am usually a total sucker for an observation deck, but in the 5 months I lived in Sydney, I never went to the top of the Tower!

    But I love totally loving your pictures!!! I love saying to myself, “I know where that is!” and turn (East), turn(South East), turn(South), turn(West):-)

  • A birds eye view is the best!  Great pictures of a city I have not been to yet.

    What is the crown jewel of the Sydney skyline? Does it have anything comparable to the London Eye or Paris’ Eiffil Tower?

  • Oh wow. Beeyoootiful! One of these days I’ll make it to Sydney.

    It’s a gorgeous place to live–although I do still prefer Melbourne :)

    I didn’t make it to the Sydney Tower the first three weeks I was in Sydney, but did want to check it out on my last visit up there–but totally worth it on a sunny day!

    Thank you! It really is a picturesque city :)

    I would say the Opera House or the Harbour Bridge–but neither really dominate the skyline. The Sydney Tower, where I took these photos from, is probably the most defining feature in the skyline.
