What is the only flag that appears on other nations’ flags? Britain’s Union Jack. It dominates the Australian flag, and this one on Victoria Road dominates Rydalmere and surrounding suburbs.

In Hammerli Way, Shalvey: Is this guy for real? He’s asking if he can ride me in the Spring Derby!


Shalvey

Sports-mad Shalvey sure goes through some shoes. These grace a cleverly-named tiny street - not Margaret Street, Margaret Place or Margaret Circuit, but Margaret Court. Margaret Court was Australia's and the world's number one tennis player.

You can wander for kilometres along Shalvey’s wide, grassy corridors. After meandering down the power line, let the creek navigate you to Chifley College.


Silverwater

Silverwater’s Blaxland Common has a steep hill that’s easy to climb, thanks to a spiral footpath. The spiral path is protected by a one-metre thick rock wall. A sample section suggests that it contains upwards of a million rocks.
