Bicentennial Park wetlands

Bicentennial Park sits on the shore of Homebush Bay, beside Sydney Olympic Park. It was created in 1988 to celebrate Australia's Bicentenary. It involved recycling over 40 hectares of a former rubbish dump into a regional recreation area and the conservation of 53 hectares of a wetland ecosystem on the Parramatta River. The wetlands feature boardwalks and viewing towers.

  2. I am one of the silent advocate of raising awareness of our ecosystem. You have covered so many places Jim that I haven't been to. This is great!

  3. That's a very dynamic thing to do for everybody and the earth, too. This series of photos is really great.
