Flying Into Sydney – Now That’s What I Call A Great View

I’ve been flying in and out of Sydney Airport for a bit over 25 years and it’s something I’m still passionate about.

The first time just blew me away; there were so many beaches, in a city – unheard of! And all the swimming pools!

My absolute fave is when the plane comes in over the Harbour and past the Sydney Harbour Bridge – fantastic!

Here are some shots taken on a recent flight, what a treat to see the city in its evening golden glory.

And that’s all I’ll say cos this is Wordless Wednesday, do pop over and check out lots more shots with Trish, at My Little Drummer Boys.  Pop over!

    It’s been too long, about 15 years, since I flew into Sydney! Last time was 7 years ago and we drove two days to get there. I would love to be there again, I love it 🙂

      Come back soon!! I really was totally knocked out the first day I flew in, will never forget it. We went to Cronulla beach that first day, and drank an ice cold middy of beer… all had a big impact… and I’m still here!

    Beautiful photos! I have always thought that to do Sydney justice you really need to see it from the sky. No matter where we go, everytime we come home we all marvel at the beautiful view. Great post.

      Same here, it’s always a thrill. I’ve once flown over Sydney in a helicopter, but a LONG time ago. I must try to do that again and take the kids… expensive though.

    Isn’t flying magical, I flew back Bris-Cairns route at night and LOVED it! Just amazing. One of my favourites is flying in to Queenstown in NZ (my country of birth)
    Great pics xx

    I love your photos. Sydney is a great city and I flew in and out on Tuesday in a Dash8-400 (little plane)

    Kind of takes your breath away doesn’t it Seana?
    So long since I’ve been to Sydney, no doubt a lot has changed x

    I always try to find my house since we usually come in from the north, but usually I can’t see anything I recognise until I see the really big icons in the city. I am a terrible flyer but I agree, flying into Sydney is a highlight.

    It truly is a magnificent city, but the waterways are what makes it special. We are lucky to live in a city that has so much waterfront available to the public!!

    Oh I agree about flying into Sydney! I remember the time I flew in after my first trip overseas, being struck by how beautiful and sunny and sparkly Sydney was at 6am on a fine, crisp winter morning.
