Tempe, Unwins Bridge

Unwins Bridge carries Bayview Avenue over the Cooks River linking the inner west suburbs of Tempe and Undercliffe. This 5-span steel beam bridge was designed by John A McDonald and completed in 1891. This view from Mackey Park in Marrickville extends to the apartment buildings in the southern suburb of Wolli Creek. A family is seen here in canoes heading to the nearby River Canoe Club of New South Wales.

  7. Wow, this bridge is much older than it looks like! It must have been the talk of the town when it was finished:) It is still an impressive view, also with the high rises in the background! Many thanks for sharing this wonderful work of steel with All Seasons. Stay healthy and happy, Jesh
