Photos - Sydney South (continued)


Stanmore

Bruce Street offers a sampling of the aged, but imposing, houses of Stanmore.


Stanmore

In Stanmore, with only a couple of exceptions, all of Corunna Road’s 250 houses are pre-Alan.

Sydenham

Some of the transport in Sydenham is 50 years old. Buses from a museum in Gannon Street in neighbouring Tempe trundled through Sydenham streets each Sunday. The blue Atlantean bus was nicknamed Sydney's "trouble-decker" because union opposition to one-man operation caused rolling strikes that removed the buses from the roads after a short trial.


Sylvania Waters

Sylvania Waters (where a TV series, the name of which escapes us, was set) is built on artificial islands, three of which are shaped like crescents. James Cook Island is perhaps the most impressive.


Tempe

If you want a real challenge, walk every Sydney street in alphabetical order. Your odyssey will finish here in Tempe.


Tempe

If you ignore the Princes Highway (which you can't), Tempe is all heritage houses or open green areas. In Tempe Reserve you can meet the wetlands birds who have chosen not to compete for air space with the planes from neighbouring Sydney Airport.


Tempe

A houseboat and several pleasure craft idle peacefully on the Cooks River beside Holbeach Avenue, Tempe. But what’s causing the boat at the right to levitate?

A reminder from Old Street (which is parallel to Young Street), Tempe: always have plenty of water on hand when you’re walking.
