Waverley Councillors at the gully
The Greens are organising a public rally to send a message to Waverley
· Protect and expand Tamarama Gully
· Restore the creek and waterfall
· Increase public access
· Rehabilitate the Indigenous heritage
The Greens Waverley councillors have been working to have Council
purchase 362 and 364 Birrell St and incorporate the land into the park
and to have the Birrell St 'road' in the Gully closed. This will help
save the waterfall and the Gully's unique Indigenous history.
Greens NSW MP and local resident Lee Rhiannon said, "The Tamarama gully
has been called the Cinderella of the Eastern Suburbs beaches *
nestled between the far more well-groomed Bondi and Bronte beaches.
"The time is ripe for this Gully, with its rich and complex heritage,
to be restored and returned to public hands.
"The government, working with Waverley Council, has a unique
opportunity to reverse the sins of the past which have been imposed on
this once magical gully.
Greens Councillor Prue Cancian said, "The community and the Greens are
urging Council to purchase the properties to help return this iconic
gully to local residents.
"We have a real opportunity now to gift Tamarama a deeper reputation
"The Waverley area is already short on public open space, but
development in the gully threatens to rob more of this from local
