To get a better grasp on the layout of the expansive Sydney city and its over 600 suburbs, a trip up to some of its heights would be in order. As a person who took this approach on her first visit to Sydney, I can attest that not only does this help you to gain a perspective on where suburbs and landmarks lie (much better than looking at a map from street level), but it also provides spectacular, sometimes 360 degree, views of this beautiful harbor city.

To help you better give your eyes some panorama pleasure, we’ve compiled a list of the places around Sydney that provide the best views from above.

Sydney Harbour Bridge

On any day of the week, a walking path on the side of the bridge is open for pedestrians to walk across – an activity often done by tourists in order to take a look at the glory of Sydney from a height. Even more awe-inspiring is the view from 440 feet (134 meters) after you’ve completed the Sydney Harbour Bridge Climb, a feat even conquered by Oprah on her visit to the land down under.
