Pink sky at night, sailors' delight, pink sky in the morning, sailors' warning. That may or may not be a reliable gauge of the weather (or sailing), but we've got you covered in terms of the best spots for seeing in the daybreak or farewelling another day. Make it romantic or contemplative – your choice.
This inner-city oasis never disappoints when it comes to scoping out the sunrise. Wear comfy shoes and walk the Tan along the Yarra River back from the Swan Street bridge (keep a look out for the friendly family of swans who call the bridge home).
Where better to watch the sun set than from the city's highest viewing platform? Eureka Skydeck features floor-to-ceiling windows showcasing a 360-degree view from 88 floors above street level.
You'll have to get up early to watch the sunrise at the Twelve Apostles, but it's well worth the effort. Seeing the morning's first rays bounce off the iconic rugged stacks of limestone is breathtaking (the Apostles change colour from grey to sandy yellow as day breaks). Plus, once the sunrise is over you've got the whole day to go exploring along the Great Ocean Road.
