When searching for your photogenic areas make sure to start your search by considering the type of location that will suit your needs. With its chic city streets and gorgeous sandy beaches, Sydney has a bit of everything. Along the South Coastline consider any of the ocean views, lighthouses and striking geography extending from La Perouse to Watson’s Bay.
