Kyeemagh

This Kyeemagh market garden (only partly shown here) is a big secret. Few people other than local residents are aware that such a huge garden area is only 500 metres from Sydney Airport and 9km from the city centre. The gardeners of a century ago did well in securing a cheap, long-term lease. See the huge range of vegetables from the pathway beside Muddy Creek.
