The lovely ANZAC Bridge is a cable-stayed bridge over the Johnstons Bay section of Sydney Harbour that connects two western inner suburbs of Sydney (Pyrmont and Glebe Island). As demonstrated by the blog in the middle photo, there is a well-designed pedestrian walkway. The bridge opened 1n 1995, but it was not named to honor the Australia-New Zealand Army Corps until Remembrance Day 1998. Statues of two diggers stand at the western end of the bridge. "Digger" is a slang term used in Australia and New Zealand for soldiers from those countries. It originated during WWI and, contrary to what the blog initially and naively thought, it is not a pejorative term.
