GreenWay Revegetation & Bushcare Plan

A Plan for greening the GreenWay

The 'GreenWay Revegetation & Bushcare Plan; Creating an indigenous flora and fauna corridor' has been developed with key Council and community stakeholders as part of the GreenWay Sustainability Project to confirm the role of current and new bushcare sites in the continued re-establishment of a biodiverse and sustainable GreenWay corridor and wider catchment. 

The Plan confirms the biodiversity vision for the GreenWay:

“The continued re-establishment of pre-European flora and fauna along the Cooks River to Iron Cove GreenWay corridor, with a focus on environmental best-practice, sustainability and community engagement.”

The Plan also outlines a range of biodiversity objectives for the GreenWay, including: creating a flora and fauna corridor which reflects the original vegetation of the area, providing habitat and facilitating movement for a range of plant and animal species, protecting and enhancing the habitat of locally significant species such as the Long-nosed bandicoot; promoting community education about the importance of biodiversity and using a cautious, staged approach to revegetating weedy areas to minimise disruption to existing fauna habitat.

The predominant vegetation communities to be re-established in the GreenWay include Sydney Turpentine-Ironbark Forest, Sandstone Forest and Sandstone Heath as well some estuarine vegetation communities.

The Plan discusses existing bushcare sites and groups operating in the GreenWay, as well as strategies for the selection and establishment of new sites in the future, including sites established through the NSW Government’s Sydney Inner West Light Rail Extension.

The Plan includes a range of helpful, practical tools and resources to guide planning and implementation of bushcare sites including a GreenWay Species List and  Bushcare Site Management Plan Template as well as maps of potential new bushcare sites in the GreenWay.

The GreenWay Revegetation & Bushcare Plan will be provided to Transport NSW to guide revegetation and bushcare activities as part of the Inner West Light Rail Extension from Lilyfield to Dulwich Hill.

The Plan will be utilised by a range of stakeholders including the GreenWay Sustainability Project, partner Councils, bushcare groups and the NSW Government as part of the Sydney Inner West Light Rail Extension and GreenWay Project.

Welcome to the GreenWay website!

 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!
