Pyrmont Bridge, Harbourside monorail station

The Harbourside monorail station at Darling Harbour is located beside this pylon and lamp of Pyrmont Bridge. The Sydney monorail connects the city with Darling Harbour and Chinatown. Sydney Tower is reflected in the glass of the monorail station.

  1. Wonderful shot with the train just out of the station and the sun on it's nose. Your sky is clear blue as ever, I think.
    Enjoy your weekend!

  8. Very impressive! A monorail in Australia - is this unique for your country, I wonder.

  9. Margaret, it's not unique in Australia. There are at least two other monorails that I know about on the Gold Coast in Queensland. One is at Sea World running between the park and resort and another is at Broadbeach from the casino to a shopping centre, near the beach.
