Here are some photos taken recently from two such locations.
MontereyGoogle Maps link
Monterey is one of the Sydney suburbs beside Botany Bay. You get views of Sydney's skyline, planes landing at the airport, and the lights, cranes, and tanks at the Port Botany freight terminal. All of this from just one location - great value for money!

WombarraGoogle Maps link
There are a number of small coastal towns on the scenic road south from Sydney to Wollongong. I'm attracted to the beach pool at Wombarra as the still waters are great for reflecting the sky and the fence line adds an element of interest.
This photo was taken nearly an hour before sunrise. The colour of the sky isn't what you would have seen if you had been there, but the camera picked this white balance setting and I like the purple/yellow combination better than the blue/orange of the actual colours.

You'll find these and other images in the Nature/Coastal, Others/City, and Others/Art galleries.
