1. As above. Morning by the tower, afternoon on the edge of Botany Bay.
2. Morning - no probs, afternoon - OK if you have a step ladder, you may be able to get some shots without but there will be a fence in the lower foreground.
3. Morning by far - much busier and a lot more foreigners. Suggest 0630-1300.
4. To the tower catch the long stay car park shuttle - its just a couple of hundred yards walk from here. Botany Bay is a taxi ride or catch a lift with some of the friendly spotters (there's lots of them) you're bound to meet by the tower.
The tower and BB spots are 34/16 rwy spots.....
If they use rwy 25 its about 1/2 mile walk from Dom terminal or a 1/4 mile walk from the Virgin Blue terminal. Both have shuttle busses from the Intl terminal I believe.
SYD is a super place for piccies - have a look at some I took a few weeks ago.

Thanks very much for your help guys. TWR75 I checked the link & it is a great website, I plan to print it all off tomorrow to take with me. It would be great to meet some fellow spotters/photogs from down under. I have checked the photos here on a.net of YSSY, very good indeed. It will make a change from the cold afternoon I had at BOH & LHR on Monday.
Hopefully my brother who lives in Sydney has a stepladder I can borrow (if he does, I hope I can take it on the bus & ferry!).
I am arriving on Air Canada on Monday AM (about 0715 local (having a 24hr stop in CYVR)), so if there is anyone there at the time who can take a photo of our plane arriving & to upload to a.net, even better.
