Follow the VFR route as marked on your VTC. The prominent Sydney International Regatta Centre, out to your left, lies immediately south of the Richmond R470 boundary.
Continue tracking southbound. Out to the east, en route to Nepean Bridge, you will see a rail bridge, where the Great Western Highway and the railway cross the river.
The Nepean Bridge is a mile and a half south of here. Do not confuse the two bridges.
