Darling Island, street lamp

This street lamp is located at Darling Island, in the inner city suburb of Pyrmont. Darling Island was levelled and joined to the mainland with hewn rock in the late 1840s when it became home to shipbuilding yards. The building on the right is a former wharf warehouse which was redeveloped in the 2000s into an apartment building with spectacular views of Sydney Harbour. Barangaroo and the Sydney skyline including Sydney Tower.

    1. I'd say all the apartments sell for over a million dollars and a few million for the ones with the best views of the city. .
