Bicentennial Park, Trelliage Tower

The Treillage Tower is located at the highest point of Bicentennial Park at Homebush Bay. The tower sits at one end of an avenue of plane trees, with a fountain at the other end. It is a 3 storey, 17 metre high viewing tower constructed with trellis. Treillage is a French word for lattice, which was commonly used in gardens in the 16th century. The tower provides great views of Bicenttennial Park, Homebush Bay, Parramatta River and the Sydney city skyline, in the distance.
