Pyrmont Bridge

Pyrmont Bridge crosses Cockle Bay at Darling Harbour and connects the inner city suburb of Pyrmont with the Sydney central business district. The swing bridge was opened in 1902 but has been a pedestrian bridge since 1988. It also carries an elevated monorail track which remains stationary so that the monorails can cross even when the bridge swings open for large boats. A Sydney Monorail can be seen here crossing the bridge, heading towards Harbourside station at Darling Harbour.

  4. I can remember traveling from Glebe to the city and passing over this bridge daily. I was glad when they didn't pull it down and made it a pedestrian bridge.

  8. Great shot Jim, must be interesting to be on the monorail when the bridge goes up!

  9. It would be neat to see the monorail go past while the swing bridge was up!

  10. VioletSky, it actually swings around rather than up.
