Spanning the Johnstons Bay and connecting the Pyrmont and Glebe Islands stands the massive Anzac Bridge. It is a replacement for the Glebe Island Bridge (built in 1901), which uses a cable-stayed engineering.

Built in 1995, the Anzac Bridge got its name in commemoration to the Australian and New Zealand Army Cops who served in WWI. This is why flags of Australia and New Zealand adorn the east and west pylons of the structure, as well as a bronze statue stand on the western edge of the bridge.

The Anzac Bridge is also the longest bridge of its style in all of Australia. It measures 106 feet wide and 1132 feet long. Pedestrians and bikers can also cross the bridge.
