Australia's Bridges: Elizabeth Street Footbridge across the Parramatta River in NSW

March 2011 (-33.813 deg., 151.009 deg.) Elizabeth Street Footbridge

This isn't the end of the Parramatta River, but it is the end of the ferry ride.  A weir blocked our progress and so I took the ferry back to Sydney, and missed five or six interesting bridges further upstream.

In the foreground is the Elizabeth Street Footbridge with its decorated canopy. Behind it, on Y-shaped piers, is the Barry Wilde Bridge. Barely visible in the distance is the Lennox Bridge, a stone arch and one of the oldest bridges in Australia (1839).
