The Rocks Area Wedding Photo Locations

The Rocks area in Sydney is a great place for wedding photos. There are numerous locations with views of the Harbour Bridge, Sydney Opera House, Luna Park, and not to mention the old world alley ways and buildings of the Rocks area. You also have the parks and outlook of Observatory Hill and Dawes Point Park, as well as being very close to the Botannic Gardens. Did someone say spolit for choice?!

We detail below a number of The Rocks photo locations.




Sydney Opera House

The Sydney Opera House is an icon of Sydney and can make for a great backdrop for your wedding photos. The Opera House steps are lovely, but this area can be busy on weekends. Generally people will move away from an area if you ask nicely. Get up close for some interesting shots with the Opera House, and use it as a feature in the back ground for photos from around the Rocks area.

Dawes Point Park

The Rocks

Dawes Point Park is right at the end of the Rocks, underneath the Harbour Bridge and so it has a number of views towards the Opera House, Luna Park, and the Harbour. Quite a popular place for shots looking up the Harbour Bridge, but is usually very shady in the afternoon.

Observatory Hill

The outlook from Observatory Hill is wonderful, but there are plenty of other shots to be had in this area of the Rocks. The stone and trees of the park can be used for some great wedding photos, and there are often a few less people around.
