Those push bike riders need to get off and walk. Each evening walking over the bridge the bikes are zooming past, very dangerous to pedestrians. Even more dangerous to kids, they would be sent flying. But I just love the old bridge.
We were lucky enough while having lunch in Cockle bay wharf to see the bridge in operation. It was amazing at the speed that it opens and closes. Very fast for an old working bridge. It was the first time I had seen it operate....More
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.

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.
The original docklands of Darling Harbour have been transformed into a tourist mecca with entertainment for the whole family. Cockle Bay Wharf offers dining options from budget to upscale and million dollar views of the harbour. Young crowds gather on weekends for nightlife that ranges from salsa clubs to Dj’s. Families can visit the Chinese Gardens of Friendship or the Sydney Aquarium, one of the largest in the
world. The Sydney Maritime Museum and the IMAX theatre are also popular attractions. The Harbourside Shopping Centre is a site unto itself, with hundreds of shops, restaurants and bars. On Saturdays in the summer, the city puts on a spectacular fireworks show along the harbour's shore and there are plenty of other free events during the year - Darling Harbour Fiesta, VIVID’s light installations and the Sydney Festival, just to name a few.
