Instagram-worthy places to visit in Sydney and NSW

Whether you are a digital content creator, photographer, blogger or simply a passionate instagramer who loves to keep an active and eye catchy grid, you know that capturing the perfect insta worthy image takes more than just a good camera. Color theme, perspective and good lighting make the difference between an ordinary and a superb like worthy image. Now, you can also say that with a good eye, you can turn what’s basic into interesting and appealing, but nothing like a stunning location to simplify the process of getting the right shot.

Therefore, scouting photogenic locations comes into the equation if you want to stand out. Sydney has endless stunning spots where to score fabulous and memorable images, whether you are looking for a waterfront or interesting location to showcase your style….( no, no the Opera House and Sydney Harbour Bridge, that’s obvious) the following are just a few of my favorites spots in town and I wanted to share them with you in case you’re wondering about Instaworthy locations in Sydney, take note!

For drinks and cheers with a view

La Hacienda Sydney – One of most charming interiors in town, – if you ask me; classic and elegant pastel furnishings and the ever south after harbor views will make you want to stay and get back for more.

Cafe del Mar Sydney – With a stylish and inviting  interior restaurant, and a equally pleasant terrace view to one of the most vibrant spots in Sydney, Cafe del mar is a must visit destination. Not only its menu and drinks selection but its outdoor setting present an #Instaworthy scenario to capture your happy moments

For laid back drinks after work –

The Sydney Dance Company lounge in the Rocks, offers a casual and cozy setting, perfect for those discovering the city as well as to those who want to catch up after work whilst enjoying a water view and deck access to the harbor.

Breakfast, brunch or lunch with a lake view?

None other than the Beach House in Palm Beach. If you love the outdoors lifestyle but are more in sync with nature, going to the Boat House will also give you the chance to discover the beauty of the hidden surrounds like beaches and impressive views from the Light House

Lunch and dinner with city view

Enjoy a cosmopolitan atmosphere and impressive panoramic views of the city, The Ternary comes with everything to make you want to stay longer and make the most of your visit

The Flying Fish – Bridge and harbor views but more intimate and cozy, – aside from the exquiste menu you’ll be delighted with some of the finest oysters you’ll taste in Sydney

The Palisade Hotel

Chic pink couches, and huge windows looking out to a beautiful sunset, await at Hotel Palisade, not too big not too small, arrive on time to secure the best spots – Did I mention the oysters are a delicacy here too?

The balcony view from the Palisade Bar

Sunset and cheers with a view

One of the many gems to discover at the new Barangaroo area, 12 Micron counts on various atmospheres to please your mood and needs, – from a fancy retro chic interior lounge to a rooftop terrace with waterfront views, what’s not to like? PS outdoor tables in stone color are just perfect in case you are into flatlays


It might be bondi’s most photographed icon and it isn’t hard to see why, Bondi Icebergs is a must stop for visitors and an all time favourite for locals, the restaurant indoor is fresh, sophisticated and relaxed with a glass balcony that will guarantee a lush capture for your insta grid.

For natural beauty hunters-

Diamond Bay – Perfect for a Sunday walk, but be careful this stunning views require minding your steps. This spot isn’t as crowed as Bondi, rather serves more for meditation, reflection and a nice cliff walk, it’s a visual indulgence

Paradise at your reach

If your are keen for a three hour drive you’ll be rewarded with the deepest blues and beautiful outdoor nature from Tomaree, a NSW wonder that competes in beauty with any exotic retreat in the world

See the whole skyline without moving from your chair

Back to the city and ready for a 360 Degrees view? The O Bar and Revolving restaurant is perfect to capture a panoramic view of the city whilst sipping on your favourite cocktail

An oasis in the city – Alexandria Grounds

Like a escape to a dream farm, Alexandria Grounds is a must visit when in Sydney, – with fresh flowers, outdoor dinning, and intimate gardens that will be your oasis in the city – Did I mention it is pet friendly?

Things to see and do in Sydney

Nothings as insta worthy as a graffiti

Looking for something more urban with an arty take? Nothing like graffiti – Sydney has it’s fair share of graffiti murals, suburbs such as Newtown, Enmore, St Peters, Glebe and Redfern have plenty of interesting murals to check out.

Thanks for your visit!
