Pyrmont Bridge


With all its glitz and glamour it is easy to forget that Sydney is a working port. The City of Sydney Port Walking Tour uncovers the layers of Sydney’s working past. This fascinating walk begins at the State Heritage Registered Pyrmont Bridge. Pyrmont Bridge in Darling Harbour is one of the world's oldest surviving electrically operated swing bridges. The current swing bridge opened in 1902 and replaced the first Pyrmont Bridge which began operating in 1857. The swingspan allows access for vessels that are too tall to travel under the bridge.
