Pyrmont, Darling Island

This view towards the Sydney skyline is from Darling Island, in the inner city suburb of PyrmontSydney Tower can be seen in the distance with the MLC Centre reflected in one of the office buildings. Darling Island was levelled and joined to the mainland with hewn rock in the late 1840s when it became home to shipbuilding yards. The wharf warehouses here have been redeveloped into apartments and offices.

    1. It's a very quiet area on a peninsula so you're only likely to see residents or office workers, On weekends there are not many people out and about.

  2. It's amazing how every odd corner of the inner city now has residential developments..I bet all the people are at hipster food markets also springing up. Nice shot Jim.
