The day had started out glorious. In fact, as the temperature gauge on my phone showed 29 degrees before 9am I was concerned it would be too hot for our walk. But when I made my way to the Milsons Wharf meeting point for 6pm, suddenly everything changed. Clouds covered every speck of blue in the sky and the wind blew so strong I thought I might end up in the harbour instead of photographing it!
Luckily our hardy group of Instagrammers didn’t let a little wind put them off. Together we braved the wind and a few random showers and the group took incredible photos of Sydney despite the slightly challenging photography conditions.
I’d designed the #SydneyMoments Insta Walk in association with KODAK MOMENTS to showcase some of my favourite angles to photograph Sydney. From the North Olympic Pool, under the bridge, past the Opera House and through the gardens to Woolloomooloo, we snapped away, capturing Sydney moments from our different perspectives.
Below is a snapshot of some of the photos taken on the night. I love how everyone has captured and captioned the scene slightly differently – giving their own perspective on this scenic city.

After the rain there will always be sunshine. It’s always true just like tonight on the #instawalk with @jayneytravels spotting the beautiful skyline of Sydney. #kodakmomentsau #sydneymoments A photo posted by Carolin (@breathingtravel) on
Beautiful evening light at Woolloomooloo (and a sprinkling of rain). We once visited a Navy ship that was open to the public. Great experience for #sydneykids A photo posted by Hello Sydney Kids! (@hellosydneykids) on
There was wind, there was rain & then finally rainbows. Thanks so much to everyone who braved the elements for our Sydney insta walk and took incredible photos despite the challenging conditions. I’ll share a gallery of all these great #sydneymoments on #girltweetsworld tomorrow. Massive thanks to @kodakmomentsau for making this possible and for @harryscafedw for filling us up with pie! #kodakmomentsau #ilovesydney #woolloomooloo #70yearsatharrys
Check out the sky over @harryscafedw tonight! 😍😍😍 We devoured their famous Veggie Tiger pie for dinner tonight (YUM! 😋) after our instameet with @jayneytravels and the crew…thanks for an awesome night guys! #sydneymoments #70yearsatharrys #kodakmomentsau A photo posted by Victoria & Elaina (@thefreedomtravellers) on
Our #sydneymoments insta walk last night ended with pies & pink skies at much loved @harryscafedw. Not only was the pie (stacked high with mash & mushy peas) great but we had fun spotting the famous patrons on the wall. It’s not often I eat at the same places as Richard Branson & Chris Hemsworth 😃 #kodakmomentsau #70yearsatharrys #sydneyeats #igerssydney #sydneysunset #ilovesydney
Finishing the #instawalk with FOOD! #kodakmomentsau #sydneymoments #70yearsatharrys #cl A photo posted by Wendy Ko (@wendyandco) on
Sydney always puts on a show. Faultless, intriguing, mesmerizing. Can you tell I’m a little in love with my city. Last night I found sculptures in Woolloomooloo which I didn’t know existed. A double rainbow and BOoYA! my night was perfect. #shareaustralia #woolloomooloo #sculpture #kodakmomentsau #sydneymoments

Sydney on foot is THE way to experience some of the most beautiful parts of our city. Yesterday, after catching the ferry from Milson’s Point to Circular Quay, I walked right around to the @sydneyoperahouse and into the Botanic Gardens (200 years this year?) through this gateway and down across to Woolloomooloo for (my favorite) a tiger at @harryscafedw with this motley crew of travel bloggers. #sydney #sydneyfolk #sydneyparks #sydneymoments #kodakmomentsau #70yearsatharrys
I’d like to say a massive thanks to everyone who came and shared their moments with me.
