Vista Point of Sydney HarborMrs. Macquarie's Chair is a breathtaking vantage point from which to see Sydney's beautiful harbor in its entirety. The chair, carved of sandstone, is famously significant for being the vista point of Elizabeth Macquarie, wife of the governor of New South Wales in the 19th century. Legend has it that she'd sit and watch the ships roll in and admire the views of the harbor in its day.
Unfortunately, the day I visited the skies were overcast, though this didn't diminish from the beauty of the Opera House and Harbor Bridge in the distance.
