    Sunrise @ Sydney's Eastern Suburbs - 21 Jun (saturday) ?

    Hey Folks,

    Am travelling in to Sydney for about 8 days in mid-June, and will be staying with a friend in Maroubra. Planning to explore the Eastern Suburbs for sunrise seascape opportunities. If anyone else is keen perhaps we could try to meet up on Saturday 21 June.
    Would love to pick your brain for some location ideas!

    regards,
    Kevin

    Hey Kevin.

    It would be nice to meet up, but I don't want to promise anything.

    I don't live at/near the coast, so I can't suggest a good place to go.

    Maybe down south a bit near the golf course - as seen in one of the Mission impossible - may be a good place.

    Yes I believe you're referring to Bare Island, the site of MI:2 filming. Yes I really love the place!

    Kevin,

    Keep me in the loop of what you want to do.

    My calendar is quite empty and I don't mind doing things.

    Talk later.

    Little Bay is worth a visit and not too far from Maroubra. Lurline Bay to the north is worth a look if you can get down near the cliffs.

    I used to live in a homestay at Little Bay, and have fond memories of the place! Certainly I shall return there to visit, though maybe due to my limited time in Sydney, I may only be able to visit these places during the day and not at sunrise.

    Ok so looking in the area, the baths are "between" Major st and Tower st, if you kept walking. Right?
