Pictures from the Sydney waterfront

This post is a collection of various pictures from around Sydney Harbour that I’ve been collecting as I’ve been here.In my opinion, the waterfront is the best feature of Sydney –  the city isn’t wildly exciting to me, it’s a somewhat generic large city, however the waterfront adds some uniqueness and difference to it and there’s always something different taking place on the water.

They put everything on barges here... I've seen party barges, crane barges, cement mixer barges even a soccer field barge (!!).

    One of my colleagues identified the crane for me – it’s one of only a few Hammerhead Cranes still intact, capable of lifting 250 tonnes!
