Wolli Creek

Wolli Creek runs between the southern suburbs of Undercliffe and Wolli Creek and empties into the Cooks River near the suburb of Tempe. These apartments (top) dominate the skyline at Wolli Creek. The bridge (bottom) over Wolli Creek, located a bit further upstream, carries the Southern and Western Suburbs Ocean Outfall Sewer.

  1. Love the contrast in your images. One is lush and serene and the other encroaching urban sprawl.
    Nice shots!

  9. Those apartment blocks are just a smidge further south than The Harp, yes? What would be their nearest station? Is that on the Waterfall Line?

  10. Yes Julie, those apartments are just south of the Irish Harp at Tempe. Wolli Creek railway station is the nearest. It's a junction on the Illawarra-Bondi Junction line and the East Hills-Airport line but not all trains stop there. If you take the Illawarra line, it's between Tempe and Arncliffe.

  11. That must be somewhere near Nannygoat Hill, or am I too far over? You manage to make those atrocities look quite attractive.

  12. Thanks Ann. Not quite as far as Nannygoat Hill. I took these shots from Waterworth Park at Undercliffe and the underpass near Tempe railway station. Not very glamourous spots but the views look alright.

  19. It looks very rural in the first picture - and then that seems to stop quite suddenly?

  20. I'm enjoying your pictures but I must say that the 'footbridge' over Wolli Creek is really the South West Sewer which serves the southern suburbs and enters the sea at Long Bay.
