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!
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.
Come along on Thursday 15 December at 6pm and celebrate the latest link in the GreenWay to be completed. The Cooks River to Iron Cove GreenWay now has an upgraded shared path and lighting between Marion Street and Parramatta Road, Leichhardt.
Join us for a free sausage sizzle and bike repair station to celebrate the latest 'missing' link to be completed. The upgrade is the first of 11 GreenWay Missing Links to be jointly funded by the state government and Inner West Council. The Missing Links are due to be completed by 2020. Click here for details.

Congratulations to Natalie Sharpe who's painting 'Magpie and the Ibis Fish' in the Local Artist category of the GreenWay Art Prize took out the Derivan People's Choice Award. Thanks to our friends and sponsors from Derivan, Natalie wins $500 in Derivan art materials along with a year's subscription to Art Almanac.
Natalie's inspiration for her painting is described in her artist statement: "I am constantly inspired on the many bike rides taken along the Cook's River, inside the green corridors of the inner west trail. Obsessed with the glorious magpie for some years; I love their sounds and their song; their look, their striking black and white, their habitats, their survival, the tenacious and bold characteristics, their small families and strong communities. They live and survive the human onslaught on the availability of trees, air and food. Truly beautiful and unique. They love the eucalypts.
