If there were a list of the most Instagram–worthy places on earth, Australia’s biggest city would rank near the top. There’s the iconic architecture, the popular public art (like the canopy of birdcages hanging overhead in Angel Place) and, of course, spectacular beaches (just try to choose among the 100 in and around Sydney).
