The GreenWay is an urban green corridor in Sydney's Inner West. It is a bush corridor and a hub for community arts and groups, bushcare, walking and cycling. The GreenWay Community is maintaining a campaign to build an off-road shared path from the Cooks River to Iron Cove. This trail was to be built as part of the Inner West Light Rail Extension but was deferred by the state government. As an interim measure we have marked out an alternative route to help people travel along the corridor.
This website is a portal to all GreenWay related activities in the catchment. Get involved in the site - register and add community events, send us resource materials, and add comments. With your feedback we will continue to improve and evolve this site - let us know what you think!

The latest editon of our e-newsletter is out now. It's been a big year for the GreenWay, with over $15 million committed to complete the GreenWay Missing Links and the hand-over by Transport NSW of six new bush care sites. Our annual GreenWay Art Exhibition toured to three venues in seven weeks and our schools program continued to expand. You can read all about it here.
A big thank you to all our volunteers for your time and effort invested in GreenWay activities this year, ranging from bush care and cycling advocacy to sustainability education and public art.
Great news with reports today that the endangered baby penguin found in the stromwater drain along the GreenWay has been reunited with its colony on Sydney's northern beaches.
The little penguin who has been named 'Holly' was rescued by the RSPCA at Haberfield and taken to the Taronga Wildlife Hospital where it was treated in intensive care for dehydration and exhaustion.
You can read the full story and see some other gorgeous pictures of Holly here.
