Large cities are particularly fascinating not only during the day, but also at night. When the high-rise facades illuminate and Sydney is bathed in a yellow-gold light, this radiates a special atmosphere that is difficult to capture even in photos.

Sydney – the skyline at night

Nevertheless we tried to capture some great night scenes of the city with the camera during our stay in Sydney. This article will give you an impression of Sydney at night.

How to get to Sydney

Sydney has the largest airport in Australia and is therefore very easy to reach from many parts of the world. There are many flights with stopover, but also direct flights, e.g. from Asia or the United Arab Emirates. From Europe there is usually a stopover since the total flight time is over 20 hours. It’s best to compare prices and times at Skyscanner.

Tip: Due to the long flight time it is worth to do a stopover in Asia, e.g. in Singapore, Kuala Lumpur or Bangkok, before heading to Sydney.

To get to the city from the airport, there are several options. The Airport Link Train takes you to the main train station in just under 13 minutes. The buses 400, 420 regular and 420N (night drives) are other ways to get to the city cheaply. This is also where the neighborhoods like Kings Cross or Circular Quay are located. The last option is to pre-book an airport shuttle online that will take you directly to your accommodation.

Accommodation in Sydney – our hotel tip

The Mariners Court Hotel is located on the edge of the center, just a few-minutes walk from the Royal Botanic Gardens, from which you can reach the Sydney Opera. In addition to the clean rooms with all amenities and a balcony, the hotel offers a breakfast buffet, washing machines and dryers as well as luggage storage. Good access to public transport also speaks in favor of the Mariners Court Hotel.

You can find more hotels in Sydney in other popular areas like Kings Cross or Darling Harbor here.

Even though I spent my time while travelling preferably on islands, I’m still fascinated by large cities and their skylines. Especially at night, when everything is lit up it’s really amazing. Therefore one night I went through Sydney to capture those wonderful views by taking lots of pictures.
