Beautiful Homebush Bay, New South Wales, Australia
Homebush Bay is a bay on the south bank of the Parramatta River, in the Inner West of Sydney, Australia. The name is also sometimes used to refer to an area to the west and south of the bay itself, which was formerly an official suburb of Sydney, and has now become the suburbs of Sydney Olympic Park, Wentworth Point and part of the neighbouring suburb of Lidcombe. Homebush Bay is located 16 kilometres west of the Sydney central business district, and is split between the local government areas of City of Parramatta and City of Canada Bay. Homebush and Homebush West are separate suburbs. The bay has natural and artificial shoreline on the southern side of the Parramatta River between the former suburb of Homebush Bay and the suburb of Rhodes. The bay was contaminated with dioxin and other chemicals by Union Carbide group which led to commercial fishing bans in most of Sydney Harbour and health advisories about limiting the quantity of fish eaten from the Parramattta River. Fishing is prohibited in Homebush Bay for health reasons. Other contamination includes phthalates, lead, polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbons, DDT and heavy metals. The eastern shore of the bay was remediated starting in 2008 to remove about 75% of the dioxin from the bay. Remediation was completed in mid-2010. 25250

Here, shall I rest
Cemeteries. I've loved visiting them for so many years. As a young child from the age of 10, I'd spend a large amount of time in a local cemetery situated a close walk from my home. I'd take a novel or a drawing pad and pencils and spend many happy hours walking around. Undisturbed, untroubled, a place of peace to enjoy the flora and fauna and especially to ponder the lives and history of those gone before, the world they left behind. In awe of the artistry and poetry of gravestones, mausolea. And as the years have passed, I've found myself drawn to spending time in cemeteries across the globe, three favourites being Père Lachaise in Paris, Isola di San Michele in Venice and Highgate back home in London. So I found myself in Rookwood recently, Sydney's largest cemetery, opened in 1867. I spent a while visiting friends, family and others now departed. 'Respect, reflect, remember'. (Rookwood is the largest necropolis in the Southern Hemisphere).
