Campbells Cove, Southern Swan

This view of Campbells Cove at The Rocks is from the boardwalk at the northern end. The Southern Swan is a barquentine built in Denmark in 1922. It made the voyage from England to Australia in 1988 to take part in the Australian Bicentennial First Fleet Re-enactment. It is now is berthed at Campbell's Cove where it provides day trips and exclusive charters on Sydney Harbour and occasional offshore trips up and down the New South Wales coast.

  1. Hi, Jim... you made me look up the barquentine...sailing ship. I'll bet it is truly beautiful on the water with the three tall masts up.

  6. That's my favorite kind of urban scene. It'd be fun to take that charter!
