Swinging Sydney

The Pyrmont walk that we described yesterday starts near the Pyrmont Swing Bridge at Darling Harbour in Sydney. The bridge dates from 1902 and had a central section that swings open to let large boats through.


Along the walk we saw the Anzac Bridge, which was built in 1995. Beneath the Anzac Bridge you can see the Glebe Island Bridge (below), which is another swing bridge. It was opened in 1903, and is now disused.
