Cockle Bay

Pyrmont Bridge, a swing opening bridge, spans Cockle Bay in Darling Harbour. It used to be a main vehicle bridge in to Sydney, but once replaced by new freeways in the 1980s, it became a pedestrian bridge.

The decommissioned ferry, South Steyne is now used as a restaurant.


  1. I like how they are reusing existing structures and giving them new functions. Great photo. I like the looks of this place.

  2. It is a lovely old bridge Sally and to retain it showed more than I usually credit pollies with!

  3. Oh dear, you've got spam!

    I think I can almost see my ex-office window from here. Great memories of course.

    And then that spiral water feature, ah I love it!I've got a picture of it but nowhere near as good as yours. I'm delighted to see it. No visitor walking along the wet path down to the bottom?

  4. Great photo of Sidney. Hope i has a chance to go there next time. Thanks for sharing. I'll follow this blog and check it out later.
