No, it's not South America, where these water vines belong,
but Lane Cove (in an area formerly called Osborne Park), just eight kilometres from the centre of Sydney city.
The vines contain plenty of water and are the traditional water source in
undeveloped areas of South America.
See them or get tangled up in them from tracks starting from Ronald Avenue
or Osborne Road (near Second Avenue).
In Lane Cove, amidst a large complex of town houses and units, a precarious feeding station.
What park offers views such as this of
Lavender Bay, the bridge and the city?
Watt Park, accessed by Lavender Crescent.
There are more roots than tree alongside Lavender
Crescent, Lavender Bay. The reserve is alongside the bay of
the same name. It’s well worth the level walk around
the bay to and under the harbour bridge.
Linley Point occupies the top of a cliff
overlooking the Lane Cove River. One of the small suburb's
boundaries is Fig Tree Bridge.
Six proofs that Dettmann Avenue, Longueville, is in an ‘A’ class residential area.
In Longueville, the sight of

Who said that it was only country areas
that have dirt roads? Dettmann Avenue, Longueville,
joins the club.
Longueville streets, such as Christina
Street, afford panoramic views of Sydney including its
harbour bridge, known to locals as “The Coathanger”.
