Can you work out the location from where I took this photo? Look closely for some landmark buildings and their position to help you.

Can you give the exact address or longitude and latitude? Let us know which words you used in a Google search, any other search apps you may have used, and which details in the photo helped you.

EXTRA: Dig deep into the history of the location from where the photo was taken. Who was it named after and why would this mean anything to us?

  1. Hello
    I believe this a photo from Mrs Macquarie’s chair
    The coordinates are 33.8594° S, 151.2222° E
    I immediately guessed the photo was from somewhere near Farm Cove. So I searched google maps. I also got the coordinates that way.
    Wikipedia states she was the wife of Governor Macquaire. (Governor of NSW from 1810-1821.) She used to sit on a limestone rock and watch the harbour traffic.

  2. We think you were in Two Jeffrey’s Street Kirribilli Ave NSW 2061 Captin Henry Water House reserve. We use google maps to figure out were you where. We searched up Sydey Habour Brigde.

  3. We got Mrs Maquaries Chair we couldn’t get the latitude or longitude it was hard but fun we used google maps and searched Sydney Opers house and checked the angle and found Mrs Maquaries Chair.

  4. I have found that you are at Mrs Macquaries chair. Search words were Sydney harbour bridge and I got it from google maps.

  5. We used google maps and typed in these words: Sydney Harbour Bridge opera house

    We found out where Miss Lockyer took the photo: It was at Museum of Sydney😊

  6. The Sydney opera house was designed by Jorn Utzon. It is a performing arts centre. The Sydney Habour bridge goes from daw s point to mil sons point. It is on the street of Cahill Expy
    Named after: Mr. Jack Lang

  7. First we on this website https://www.google.com.au/maps/place/Sydney+Opera+House,+Bennelong+Point,+Sydney+NSW+2000/@-33.8628242,151.2368637,16z/data=!3m1!1e3!4m2!3m1!1s0x6b12ae665e892fdd:0x3133f8d75a1ac251?hl=en-au
    First we searched up google maps, then we searched for Sydney opera house. Then we rotated the map and we found it at Maquaries chair.we used the picture by using where it is and which angle and which side we were on.

  8. I have figured out that the place you have taken this photo from is Mrs Maquarie’s Chair.

    It’s exact coordinates are: (-33.936066, 151.011833)

    This photo was named after Mrs Maquarie, who was the second wife of Lachlan Maquarie. She played a significant role in establishing New South Wales.

    I figured all this out by first searching in google maps for the Sydney Opera House. I saw from your picture that the spikes/fins were facing the right, with the bridge behind it, so, using street view, I managed to find the perfect spot where your photo was taken at. The perfect spot was Mrs Maquarie’s Chair. To conclude I searched on lots of websites to find who Mrs Maquarie really was.

    Bye! 🙂

    She went to lots of places including Van Diemen’s Land (Tasmania) , the Hunter River and one December 31 1809 she landed in Sydney and the country was torn by fractions. Elizabeth supported him throughout. She took a great interest in the Aboriginals and also the women conflicts.

  28. Dear Mrs locker i think that the photo is from Mrs macquarie’s chair. I got the information from google maps.

  29. This is the Sydney harbour bridge that she was looking over to will she was really at Milson point New South Wales.
    This is the Sydney Bridge. This building is in fact used for walking on and looking over out to the view. The photo is taken from a public beach area where it is very likely that it was a park and people might have benign eating lunch. She was at Milson point New South Wales.
    I Straight away through that she is some where you can get a clear photo and a places where it’s named after someone. She is at Milson point. Milsons Point is a suburb on the lower North Shore of Sydney, Which meant it would most likely be Milson point which it named after James Mison.
    Milson point is a bay spot and a railway station. This is what it is used for now.
    • Milson’s Point 1930-1983
    • Back in history Milson point was used for strains to come in to land.
    • It was built 123 years ago
    • It was built after James Milson.

    We got this information from google maps life like and the sydney harbour biage helped us to see were it was taken.
