OP is clearly false - I've seen the sea level rise in Sydney harbour in my lifetime, and then the tide goes out again.spinning smiley sticking its tongue out

Photos cannot determine this but without "seeing for yourself" it's hard to comprehend things.

Tide gauges, which continuously measure water height over time relative to land, are a reliable way to determine the extent of long-term sea level rise in an area, according to scientists.

This method has been used to measure sea level at Fort Denison, located in Sydney Harbor, since the late 1800s.

That long-term tide gauge “has recorded a gradual ... but fairly consistent rise in sea level of 0.1mm/yr or 3 inches/century,” according to Gary Griggs, a professor of earth sciences at UC Santa Cruz. “That rate appears to have increased over the past decade.”

This rate – while not insignificant – is lower than the global average, scientists said. That’s because tide gauges measure sea level relative to the land, which is also rising in Australia.

Found that blurb on USA Today if you can believe it.
