Pyrmont, Giba Park (Theme Day: Passageway)

This passageway in the sandstone wall connects Pyrmont Point Park with Giba Park at the top of the cliff, in the inner west suburb of Pyrmont.

  1. That's a really unusual passageway.
    Enlarged, every beautiful sandstone stone can be seen, each one different.

    Great passageway photo for theme day! You're always a few steps ahead of us here in Minnesota!

  3. The climb looks like it could be a bit challenging! Leif mentions time difference; do try to check out the late posters, too.

  5. We really have worked our sandstone base all over our city, Jim. It is such a crucial element when cut into or taken elsewhere.

    Good shot of an imposing set of steps ...

  6. This looks like it could belong to an ancient far off land.

  7. Reminds me a bit of the stairs near the Opera House going up to the Botanical Gardens - that solid sandstone wall with the trees at the top. Wonderful Sydney sandstone. Good choice for the theme.

  13. An unusual corner of this great park and a perfect choice for this Theme Day. Sandstone is great because has various shades of color and almost that almost unfinished raw look.

  14. Jim, good choice in line with your current series. I've often see these stairs but never walked up. Is the park at the top worth the energy spent getting there?

  15. Joan Elizabeth, there's nothing special in Giba Park at the top of the cliff but it provides some brilliant views of the bays, wharves and city skyline.

  17. Must feel nice to "escape" into the wall from the outside world.

    A wonderful Wednesday for you.

  19. A great day's adventure to be sure. And to an American, the names of Australian places sound so exotic.
