    Assuming you have a smart phone or tablet, there is an app that you can use to see where and when the moon will rise from any place on earth. I use one called The Photographer's Ephemeris.

    No expert here but since you said "in Sydney area" I'd think as close to the coast as possible. Get the light pollution behind you as much as possible.

    It is a long time since visiting Sydney however would the ferry pier at Balmain be a suitable location if you were after the Sydney harbour bridge in the photo.

    Nick. As a first response I would say "No" because of the angle of the bridge from that point.
    BUT... do you have some ephemeris information as to where the moon will appear?

    Back to the bridge, if you want pretty well front-on perspectives there are two places you can
    go to:

    1. Blues Point Reserve (the park or the carpark there). The Bridge will be fairly large from there.
    https://www.google.com.au/maps/place....2038631?hl=en

    2. Balls Head Reserve (a bit of a walk along the track will get you there from the carpark).
    https://www.google.com.au/maps/place....1947275?hl=en

    Use Satellite View and enlarge. The lookout point is the clearing just east of the look in the road. The Bridge
    will appear smaller than from Blues Point, but I suspect that it still won't be far enough away if you intend to
    use a telephoto lens to get a large shot of both it and the moon.

    Given that the moon will be something OVER half a degree of angular measure, you might care to see
    how much of the Bridge it will cover in your picture.

    In Google Maps, do a "What's Here" and a street view for what TWO of the the three places can show you.
    It's not good enough for Balls Head (because they shot from the road through the trees). I had a pic I
    took from there ages ago... Will post when can find it...
    CC, Image editing OK.

    Oh, and I completely forgot that you get Blues Pt Tower in the shot

    OK, this is from Balls Head lookout (with Blues Pt before the Bridge)...

    Based on my look at TPE if you are Blues Point the moon will be rising well to the left of this photo somewhere over North Sydney. I think you need to be somewhere near the Overseas Passenger Terminal and then the moon should be rising to the left of the Opera House . But there is a cruise ship in so not sure how much of the OPT will be accessible.

    More info: http://www.space.com/34401-3-supermo...ins-video.html

    Note: try other locations... I don't know if you can see the bridge from these (Google doesn't help!).
    Birchgrove Ferry wharf, and directly north of that, (maybe) Manns Point (boat ramp or environs.
    Just a bit west of Manns Point is Greenwich Point ferry wharf (??maybe best??).
    >>Edit: Also, Woolwich Lookout.<<

    - - - Updated - - -

    Ta for the info, Brad.

    PS: IFFF... you can see the Bridge from the further points, it'll be better because:
    1.They give a near-perpendicular (west side) view of the Bridge, and
    2. It will appear smaller and therefore the moon will appear relatively larger against it.

    (Bit of a recce via ferry the day or so before will soon set you straight)

    I live at Greenwich. You can't see the bridge from the Ferry Terminal ,as Ball Head gets in the way . You get a good view of the bridge from Waverton Lookout , or Balls Head as AM showed , but the moon will be well to the left. Depends where you want the moon relative to the bridge , but if you want moon coming up over the bridge I think Balmain Ferry Termiinal , or closer at Barangaroo would provide this view .

    I think from Barangaroo you'd only get some of the bridge arch structure in such a shot

    You can get most of the bridge and both pylons in if you go right down on the lower blocks near the water at the point where the point juts out the most . But its not the best view of the bridge as you do also get a fair bit of the wharfs in . It's probably one of the best views IF you want the moon rising over the bridge. Or take a water taxi out to Goat Island! That should provide a clear view , if you can go on it these days ?

    Try this....
    If you replace the 'W' with 'T' in When, Where and What, you get the answer for each question.
    CC more than welcome. Remember, I can't be offended so go for it. Feel free to post your ideas with an edit if you have time. Thanks in advance.

    This is the view from next to East Balmain Ferry Terminal tonight. Moon should be a litle more to the left tomorrow night.

    I suppose you all realise that the moon is no closer today, relatively speaking, than it was yesterday or will be tomorrow.
