Saving Wolli Creek trailer

The Wolli Creek Valley is inner south-west Sydney’s environmental gem but might have been an 8-lane freeway. It was saved by Sydney’s longest conservation fight.

For 40 years a struggle over Sydney’s future has been fought out here, a struggle that isn’t yet over. It’s been a battle between freeways and public transport; between open space and over-development; between urban sprawl and consolidation; between high-carbon and sustainable futures.
