Pyrmont is an inner-city suburb of Sydney, in the state of New South Wales, Australia 2 kilometres south-west of the Sydney central business district in the local government area of the City of Sydney.
It is also part of the Darling Harbourregion. It is Australia's most densely populated suburb.
Pyrmont was once a vital component of Sydney's industrial waterfront, with wharves, shipbuilding yards, factories and woolstores. As industry moved out, the population and the area declined. In recent years it has experienced redevelopment with an influx of residents and office workers.
TRANSPORT: Pyrmont is linked to the city by the Pyrmont Bridge, a swing bridge used only by pedestrians, and the Anzac Bridge, a large cable-stayed bridge spanning Johnstons Bay between Pyrmont and Rozelle, which replaced the Glebe Island Bridge.
Pyrmont is also served by State Transit buses, Sydney Ferries and a light rail service. There are four light rail stations in Pyrmont at Pyrmont Bay, Star City, John Street Square and the Sydney Fish Market. The Sydney Monorail formerly ran between the city and nearby Darling Harbour across the Pyrmont Bridge before its closure in 2013.
