Balmain East, Mort Bay

This view across Mort Bay to Balmain East and the Sydney city skyline in the background is from Ballast Point at Birchgrove. The Borrowdale is a First Fleet Class ferry, which is part of the Sydney Ferries fleet. It's seen here travelling past Simmons Point Reserve and a private marina, heading towards the Balmain ferry wharf.

  2. I love the original, smallish buildings on the water line and then the great big modern city pushed into the background. That is the proper scale of things :)

  4. Ann, it depends on the weather. The harbour waters are usually fairly calm around here as long as the weather is not stormy.
