Thousands of people have eaten breakfast on the Sydney Harbour Bridge as the steel span was transformed into a grassy picnic ground.
Usually bustling with traffic, the bridge was covered by a lawn laid specially for the morning event.
It attended by 6,000 lucky picnickers chosen in a ballot to enjoy food, music and the majestic view.
"It's amazing to see the bridge in this perspective," Sydney resident Don Fuchs said as he strolled across, taking in the Sydney Opera House.
"Usually you sit in the car, you cross it, and that's it," he said.
Picnickers brought hampers full of fruit and croissants, while organisers handed out freshly baked bread, jams, apples and yoghurt.
A piano player played honky-tonk music while grazing cows added a rustic touch.
New South Wales state Premier Nathan Rees said the tourism promotion would likely become an annual event.
