Jacksons Landing & Pyrmont, Sydney tour (b/w warning)

Was a day out on satuday and with all my friends out of town I had nothing better to do. So I caught a Cityrail Bus to central *grumble* and then a tram upto the Fishmarkets and started my walk from there back to Darling Habour.

I must say the new area of Jacksons Landing is alot more quiet then I expected. It was all new and flash, yet desolate. Kind of remind me of some of the urban redevelopments back in my old home town of Perth. Just less planned and more highrised.





Anzac Bridge
















Glebe Harbour




Local Streets

























The Refinery, Distillery and The Quarry Buildings


The Distillery


The Quarry


The Distillery


The Refinery (the low rise apartments)



















White Bay & Glebe Island




























Prymont















Channel 7 Studios


I love these old iron overpasses that you find on Sydney's wharfs




























The now dated Star City Casino







Darling Harbour












































Pyrmont Bay Tram Station

Don't worry I know how you feel. When I have to download the raw 6mpx images from the camera it takes ages even on USB2...

Glad you liked photos .. the skyline looks great from that area doesn't it.
