Along the walkway from the rest station
at the top of the ramp on a Sunday morning
The walk way links the suburbs of Pyrmont on the Sydney city side to Lilyfield to the west.
You can start the walk from the Pyrmont side at the spiral ramp near the corner of Quarry Master Drive and Saunders Street in Pyrmont.

The spiral ramp
from Quarry Master Drive Pyrmont
Take your camera - there are some great artistic shots to be had.
Halfway across the bridge a plaque commemorates the joining of the two halves on the 24th July 1995. A time capsule is embedded behind the plaque.
But there are no clues as to what is in the capsule or when it is to be opened.
Looking over towards the Sydney harbour bridge you can see the old Glebe Island bridge It is permanently open although closed for sporting events such as the Sydney Marathon which now uses the old bridge instead of Anzac Bridge.
The western side of the main deck is home to the two commemorative soldier statues. On the northern, walkway, side is the Australian Digger with the New Zealand soldier across the road.
The Australian Digger
Looking across the roadway to
the New Zealand soldier.
A walk way next to the Australian Digger takes you around under the bridge to the New Zealand Soldier.
The structure on the underside of the bridge is well worth a look.
More about the ANZAC soldier statues.
What NextFrom the statues you can
- return across the bridge
- continue on a few hundred metres and catch a bus back to the city at Victoria Rd opposite Lilyfield Road (50m to your right at the end of the walkway)
- carry on around Rozelle and Blackwattle Bays. The walking and cycle paths follow the foreshore through Federal, Bicentennial and Blackwattle Bay parks - it's a fair way to walk but great on the bike.
See a Google Map of Rozelle Bay for the bus stop location and Rozelle Bay.

The end of the walkway looking back to Anzac Bridge with the
Beatrice Bush bridge to Rozelle and Blackwattle Bays to the right.
The Beatrice Bush Bridge leading to Rozelle and Blackwattle Bays.
Beatrice Bush sold newspapers seven days a week, whatever the weather, at the intersection of Victoria Road and The Crescent White Bay for more than 25 years.
Selling from the traffic island, her customers were the drivers coming off Anzac Bridge (or the old Glebe Island Bridge) waiting at the lights at the Victoria Road intersection.
It is fitting that the walk way over Victoria Road adjacent to her traffic island be named in her honour (2005).
A history of Beatrice and details of the clothing she wore can be found at the Powerhouse Museum website.
