Hi Guys. My walking tour of Sydney continues....this time to the inner western suburb of Balmain. The area has seen many changes over the years. It once had the reputation as being a rough working-class area, with alot of industry on it's waterfront. But like many neighborhoods in inner Sydney, it has seen gentrification over the last 30 years to become a very desirable place to live.

If this pub looks familiar, it was back drop in the the fight scene in the Aussie cult 1974 movie 'Stone' (its on you tube somewhere)

This is Balmain's newest park. Used to be an oil storage depot!!!

Finally reached my final destination....so I'm catching the ferry back to the city

My other Sydney walks can be found here:
Darlinghurst Coming Soon

Bondi & Bronte Coming Soon
Surry Hills Coming Soon
Watsons Bay Coming Soon
Kings Cross Coming Soon
Mosman Coming Soon
CBD Coming Soon
Lower North Shore Coming Soon
