Birchgrove or Balmain East points in Sydney, look east past the harbour bridge and opera house down the harbour. The sunrise is well worth the early morning start.

There is good bus and ferry access. In fact, catch an early morning Circular Quay-Darling Harbour loop ferry and experience sunrise, on the water under the harbour bridge and beside the Sydney Opera House. Adult ticket is about A$6.00.

The best sunrise I've ever seen was on the top of Haleakalā Crater in Maui. See photos below & notice t-shirt ;)

BUT... I've been told that the BEST sunrise anywhere in the world is seen from the top of Taquile Island in the middle of Lake Titicaca. Bold statement, I know, but it comes from a reliable source.

Exhibit A: Random YouTube Video.

I unfortunately wasn't able to go when I was in Peru due to getting stuck in the jungle for an extra day, but I plan on going back just for the sunrise and other amazing stories about the people who live on the lake. If you make it here before me please update on sunrise quality and good luck on your search for the best sunrise!

You get some beautiful Caribbean sunrises in Belize, especially on Ambergris Caye, Belize, looking out over the Belize Barrier Reef.

It's an Asian thing to climb a mountain just for the sunrise. I've experienced it at Alishan National Scenic Area, in Taiwan. (My profile photo was taken there.) There are many similar destinations in Mainland China as well.

It requires an early wake-up call, but go to the top of Haleakalā on Maui and you'll be treated to something amazing.

That's a great question. One of the most incredible sunrises I've seen was in Cambodia at Angkor Wat. Check out a few sunrise shots on Google images. Spectacular.

Halaakala

Maui, Hawaii

Get up to the top by 4:30 AM

It's cold, 40 Degrees F

Sun comes up over Volcano, Ocean, Big Island of Hawaii and if you are lucky a Hawaiian woman sings.
