The ANZAC Bridge

The Anzac Bridge in Sydney is the longest span cable-stayed bridge in Australia and among the longest in the world.   When it was officially opened in 1995 it was the replacement Glebe Island Bridge (that was a swing bridge, now permanently open) but was renamed Anzac Bridge on Remembrance Day 1998.  On Anzac Day 2000, a memorial to soldiers of the Australian and New Zealand Army Corps who served in World War I.

  1. I was in Sydney for two days prior to a cruise so, perhaps, I saw this bridge but I don't recall. I stayed right near the Quay and the Opera House. It was magical.


Welcome to my postcard collection! I love hearing what you think of the cards - but spam WILL be deleted.
