Australia's Bridges: Pyrmont Bridge in Sydney, (1)

March 2011 (-33.871 deg., 151.201 deg.) Pyrmont Bridge (1)

The 'Seven Bridges Walk' begins with the Pyrmont Bridge across Sydney's Darling Harbour. It is a long pedestrian bridge (completed in 1902) that includes timber trestle spans and two 34 m long swing spans. It uses nicely carved stone at the ends of the bridge and for the swing span. This stone must have been readily available because I've seen it on most of the older bridges around Sydney.
