After a couple of weeks off with Robyn overseas, we picked up again this weekend to walk from the end of Darling St west to Birchgrove.

Views across just 500m of harbour to the new Barangaroo site from the southern side of Darling St, beautiful waterfront parkland and renovated historic factory buildings and industrial waterfront.

All in all, a great walk.

Didn’t know that Mort Bay was named after a person and not anything to do with Death as such. Nor did we know that WWII vessels were manufactured in Balmain.
