Sydney, Australia From the Air

Sydney is a gorgeous city for sightseeing, eating, drinking and relaxing on picturesque beaches. It’s also one of the most beautiful cities in the world to fly in and out of, as the airport is very close to downtown. Here are photos of Sydney from the air.

I snapped these photos during our previous visit to Australia. The plane then turned around to cross the Pacific and head to Los Angeles for a 14 hour flight. It is a long flight from Australia to the United States

It is a long flight from Australia to the United States. But the takeoff from Sydney Airport is beautiful. It rivals flying into JFK or Newark and having an amazing view of the Manhattan skyline.
