Pier One

Hickson Road, Dawes Point/Walsh Bay.
This area of Sydney has been revitalised by theatre and other performing arts companies, and upmarket housing and hotels. This building on the former finger wharf Pier One is a Sebel Hotel.

You can read about its history here.

Across the water you can just see the ferris wheel at Luna Park, and the tall buildings of North Sydney.

PS For some reason yesterday's post would not allow comments to be left. I have no idea why. Just a Blogger quirk...


  1. Yes, an impressive building. Useful arts is here.

  2. I was there in January, but for the life of me I can't remember those tall scrapers in the background on the opposite side of the harbour!

  3. Like the art nouveau tiles from yesterday. Good find.

    Another classic harbour photo. I bet it costs quite a few dollars to stay there. But what a view you get when you open the curtains in the morning.

  4. For some reason I can't leave a comment on Sunday's post but I was most interested by the story of the concrete Aborigine (I followed the link and read the full article). Amazing!

    And then Pier One - yes of course, been there, I've roamed the area so many times. I gather you've been to the theatre lately? LOL

  5. A good angle for that shot.
