Wilden Marsh and Meadows: 1945, 1999 and 2007.

I though it might be interesting to post past aerial images of Wilden Marsh and Meadows.

  1. It’s much smaller than I had imagined. We need keep more reserves for nature; mankind has taken too much.

      It might look small from a satalite, but not so small on the ground. It can take me all day to walk from top to bottom; mind you, there is a lot to attract my attention in the process. The aerial images are way out of date and don’t do the marsh justice.

      Yes it does look very different, Raewyn. What the images don’t show well is that the reserve sits in a valley; the industrial areas are not visible from the marsh. Fortunately, Wilden Marsh is a truly beautiful and vibrant oasis in a busy urban setting.
