Artarmon to Middle Harbour

We started our walk at Artarmon station following a pathway that led us to Flat Rock Creek.

Willoughby Council's  Flat Rock Gully leaflet warns that after rain the creek crossing may not be possible, which was the case for us, as the photo below shows.

I returned on another day to take more photos. The creek flows under Tunks Park, Cammeray and into Middle Harbour at Mortlock Reserve (below).

The concrete arch Cammeray bridge (above & below) opened in 1939, replacing  the original 1892 steel suspension bridge built by a private syndicate to promote residential development. The original sandstone turreted towers were retained. The suburb Northbridge takes its name from the bridge.

There are steps leading up to The Boulevarde and Miller Street, where we caught a bus to the City.

Street Art - Katoomba

I took these photos last year when we were visiting Katoomba to walk part of the Prince Henry Cliff walk.
This street art is located in Beverly Place, a quite street near the heart of Katoomba. It was created by Street Art Murals Australia (SAMA) in partnership with the Blue Mountains Cultural Centre, University of Western Sydney and relevant stakeholders.
