Hi all, just wondering whether any SYD spotters would know the best spot for photos and video?
I went spotting here last time and the fence got in the way a LOT.
This is the place which I don't know the name of:

Hi Nick,
Are you planning on driving or using Public transport?

The tower mound is probably best place to shoot during mornings,gives you clear view over the fence just need to shoot between the light poles.

Beach carpark or fence,spot where you took videos last time is quite good in afternoons especially,preferably want a ladder up at fence though.

Than you have Observation deck in International terminal which is okay but not a great view these days.

Qantas drive spot is okay especially for 16R arrivals,the aircraft coming in on finals beside you but parking is quite difficult now i think,gate is closed most of the time now.

If your after directions and more details ill post later when i get more time.


Cheers Mark.

Observation deck is excellent for 34L departures, mediocre for 16R arrivals (due to annoying clear plastic window with tiny holes for cameras to look through)

The beach (SQ777 above) is only very good later on cooler afternoons when heat-haze is not so bad. It should be excellent at the fence line with a ladder.

Qantas Drive is excellent for 16R arrivals, morning or afternoon.

I wouldnt worry about heat haze now,Beach spot is goo from about 2pm-7pm at present with good sunlight on side,sun is still high around 12-2 and shadows creep in now just after 7pm.
