McMahons Point, Sydney Harbour Bridge

This ferry makes its way across Lavender Bay towards the MacMahons Point ferry wharf, viewed from a private wharf in the north shore suburb of McMahons Point. The Alexander is a First Fleet Class ferry acquired in 1985 and is part of the fleet that operates on the Inner Harbour. It was named The Alexander, after the one of eleven ships of the First Fleet that sailed to Australia in 1787. The Sydney Harbour Bridge and Sydney Opera House provide an iconic backdrop.

I'm going on holidays for the next few weeks so I'll be taking a break from posting until mid-September.

  1. I like these old bridges. We're sailing in and out of Sydney in November and December, so I will take the time to have a good look at your old posts with a city map alongside. Thank you!

    1. If I watch ads or films on tv, I always try to guess where in Australia the footage came from. But once you see the iconic Harbour Bridge, any lingering doubt disappears in a heart beat!
