Sydney was selected as the first settlement site because of the Tank Stream, a fresh water tributary of Sydney Cove.  This was the fresh water supply for the fledgling colony of New South Wales in the late 18th century.  It originated from a swamp to the west of present day Hyde Park and at high tide entered Sydney Cove at what is now the intersection of Bridge and Pitt Streets in the Sydney.  The bridge in the background is possibly the first bridge built in Australia as well as the first toll way.
