Crossing this old and historically significant bridge, its one of the last working electrically operated swing opening bridges in the world avails you of a great viewing platform to see the Vivid light show on Cockle Bay and Darling Harbour. An easy and pleasant walk.

This bridge is one of the world's oldest surviving electrically operated swingspan bridges. We were lucky enough whilst walking along this bridge to see a boat arrive and the bridge to swing back to allow it to pass. Pedestrians are obviously stopped and need to...More

A bridge which is actually a pedestrian walkway from Navel museum to steps leading down toward Darling Harbor area. Not really a “destination” per say but if you just happen to be walking that way it’s rather picturesque.

I liked the Pyrmont Bridge. It is dedicated for walkers and bikers. We had some great views, a bonus. It connects both sides of the Darling harbor. At the end we either chose the stairs or an escalator. I enjoyed my time here. It was...More

Like everything around Darling Harbour the bridge is well worth a visit and a great walking shortcut to get to the CBD. It’s as fast to get to the CBD from the Novotel walking across the bridge as it is by taxi. Great views also.

Great piece of Sydney history that cuts your walking time between the CBD and darling harbour. Full of activity on a summer's night.
