“Bradleys Head Amphitheatre is one of those places that just makes you say ‘gosh, I love Sydney.'”

Bradleys Head Amphitheatre is an exceptionally popular lookout in Sydney Harbour National Park. Photographers flock to the site to capture its breathtaking views of the Sydney Opera House, the Sydney Harbour Bridge and Fort Denison.

As well as offering first-class views, Bradleys Head Amphitheatre is a much-loved picnic area. You can also wander out to the old stone jetty for some fishing, or set off on one of Bradleys Head’s beautiful bushwalks.

Oh, and engaged Sydneysiders take note – it’s regarded as one of the city’s best outdoor wedding locations, you can even hold your reception at Athol Hall.

Take a virtual tour of Bradleys Head Amphitheatre on Google Street View.
