When Tim Peake takes a casual photo of Sydney, it's a little more impressive than you're average Opera House snap.

The British astronaut shared a photo of the capital city from the International Space Station just to say "g'day".

In the snap, you can clearly see Sydney International Airport as well as Sydney Harbour and the gorgeous curve of Cronulla Beach.
