Spotter-friendly Sydney Airport has closed one of its spotting locations to improve the site for enthusiasts.
Shep’s Mound, off Ross Smith Avenue, closed on 8th June for work to commence on building elevated observation areas and shelter. It is one of the most popular Sydney spotting locations, and is expected to open later in the summer.
The location is at the crossroads of two of the airport’s runways, under the sleek control tower, and with views across to both terminal areas. The new elevated location should enable photographers a better line of sight for photographs of aircraft on the taxiways and runways.
Sydney Airport has a page dedicated to helping spotters and enthusiasts. You can visit the Sydney spotting information here: https://www.sydneyairport.com.au/corporate/sustainability/community/aviation-enthusiasts
