Visiting the Avon and Nepean Dams

On 21st December, five of the Walk for Water Organising Group visited the Nepean and the Avon Dams (the Avon being affected by coal mining), as well as the gasfields near Camden and the Mt Annan Botanic Garden. Here are some pictures from that journey [note that we will now be starting from Cataract Dam].

Our friends in Rivers SoS and Protect Sydney’s Water Alliance reminded us that the Avon dam is seriously damaged by coal mining,  with the cracks to wetlands feeding the dam kind of like drilling holes in a bucket.

Have a look at our meeting place underneath the Mars Hill Cafe. It’s pretty atmospheric! We will meet there again this Sunday, 11 Jan, 2pm. All welcome!

Our meeting room for Dec 30 and Jan 11 under Mars Hill cafe.
