I wanted to provide some information about this interesting but not quite the water park is ought to be. I found the photo below care of Google earth, in a Real Estate Ad. 25 Grevillea Crescent Lidcombe. Between us, Jessica and I surmise it is a re-oxegeniser for the water in the adjacent Golf Course – Carnarvon.
Steeped in history and reflecting the cultural diversity of wider Sydney, Rookwood Cemetery is a tranquil and fascinating place of historical significance, and considerable natural and built beauty.
With a total area similar in size to the Sydney CBD, Rookwood is the largest cemetery in the southern hemisphere and the largest Victorian cemetery in the world.
Having been established in 1867, today it is the final resting place for more than a million people.
Each year over 2,000 interments and commemorations are performed, representing the vast majority of religious and cultural groups throughout Sydney.

Jessica has managed to find her Father’s marker in here, he held a Victoria Cross and so there are plaques for him everywhere though he was cremated at Pine Grove.
While I was lost the other day I found the War Cremation Memorials, in section F but I believe it was the wrong F, so I didn’t find the marker.

Out and about exploring, being so close to Olympic Park, only one stop away from Lidcombe station and never having been there we set off to explore. Reaching Australia avenue we chose to go to our left and walked towards Wentworth Common . On our way we came across the Old Brick works which has now become a Ring Walk and habitat for endangered Frog specie. Example- the Bell frog.
In a time when building a house meant plenty of brick, mortar and asbestos as opposed to 100% pure cladding, a housing boom meant it was time to get digging. The State Brickworks at Homebush was established by the NSW Government in 1911 to (publicly) provide for the demand for public housing and (privately) to shatter the stranglehold private owners had on the brickmaking industry, because no one makes money without the NSW Government getting a piece of the action. This greedy plan backfired at the onset of the Great Depression, when demand plummeted and the site started operating at a major loss. Ironically, it was sold to a private firm in 1936, and closed soon after. https://pastlivesofthenearfuture.com/2012/06/14/nsw-state-brickworksbrickpit-ring-walk-homebush-nsw/
We took many more photos that day which I shall load to my Facebook.
All together we spent most of our day there, just wandering around until we found a way to cross the road to the other side.
These are the photos Jessica took at Parramatta Park on our walk through it to Westmead Station.
I may have duplicated some since when I select too many with mouse they tend to make clones of themselves. I hope also to have chosen the best of hers.
That day we left home to go to Parramatta for Jessica to buy a “Cappy”hat from the Army Surplus store – like a cap but with flaps to protect neck from the sun. Then we set out for the next suburb, Westmead, walking through the rest of Parramatta Park, in the opposite direction than on the 6th.
I won’t caption these since I think they have a voice of their own, they are numerous since even the slightest step can bring a new perceptive to the landscape.
There are some here taken through gaps in trees and even one through and around a giant uprooted tree.
I enjoy the mirrored images.
Here are a few more photos, the first series are of the presentable aspect of the villa, Jessica did take photos of bathroom, Laundry and bedrooms but I thought them a bit icky to air.
The second set are photos taken around Main street and Herdsmen’s Avenue with a view of East Street where a bus has been parked for the length of our stay.
