Week 21 ~ U is for U-Turn, or Up the Uther way ;)

After last week’s little mosey along the Cook’s River from Tempe, we went back there and headed the other way. Turning left at Tempe Station and heading towards the airport, while I guess we didn’t expect to find pristine waters to swim and fish in that close to the airport, we were nonetheless surprised to see some pretty substantial waterfront developments being built around Wolli Creek. If they keep cleaning the river up it’ll be an attractive real estate investment methinks.

And we really didn’t think we’d be enjoying a drink at a club on the Cook’s River… we know where we’ll head for breakfast near the airport next time. Was quite nice!

Plenty of development at Wolli Creek

Disappointing… no fishing in the canal 😉 (Frankly, I’ve heard that lead poisoning isn’t as bad as they make out)

There’s a few nice parks and playgrounds and BBQs along the path

Wolli Creek, and “The Rowers” club on the river.

Shelter shed – you could shoot a 70’s movie in some of these places!

Fishing. Unbelievable!
