This weekend we walked the Tom Uren Walking Trail at Balmain.

I knew of Tom Uren’s green bans, activism, interest in heritage and the environment and the like but I wasn’t aware he was a sportsman (professional boxer, swimmer,  rugby league player for Manly) or a soldier or prisoner-of-war.

He grew up in Balmain and so Leichhardt Council has designed a nice stroll around the area.
