Pyrmont Bridge crosses Cockle Bay, Darling Harbour and provides a pedestrian walkway from the Sydney CBD to Pyrmont.The bridge is opened on Saturdays, Sundays and most public holidays (weather permitting) at 10.30 am, 12 noon, 1 pm, 2 pm and 3 pm.
The first bridge was opened on 17 March 1858, a wooden pile bridge with a iron centre swing span. This bridge was then demolished around the same time the new Pyrmont Bridge was opened in 1902. The foundation stone for the new bridge was laid on 6 December 1899 by the Hon. E. W. O’Sullivan and the bridge was opened for traffic on 28 June 1902 by the Governor of New South Wales, His Excellency Sir Harry Holdsworth Rawson KGB.

Freelance Photographer from the western suburbs of Sydney NSW Australia. I loved to find old abandoned objects and building and out of the way places to photograph. I also have a love of the history of my surrounding suburbs, especially Parramatta as it was the first convict settlement of Australia.
