Welcome to oncewasacreek.org!
After a very lengthy gestation period, I am excited to finally have the site online. Now I get to find out if it makes sense to anyone else!
This site is a work in progress. There are pages still to be written, and many that have been written will surely undergo further development as I find the time and inspiration to work on them. When I add or revise anything of interest, I will be sure to post about it here in the Newsroom.
There’s no right and wrong way to explore this site, but I suggest starting with the pages that describing the creek, its course and its catchment. Then you may want to look at the essay about the story of Gregory Park, which is the first of what (I hope) will be a series of essays exploring the history of different parts of the Western Creek catchment.
I’d love to hear your feedback about the site, and for you to share your own knowledge and thoughts about Western Creek and its catchment. You can leave comments at the bottom of some pages (like this one), but for most topics I suggest using The forum to share your thoughts. Otherwise you can email me via the Contact page. Given that the site has only just gone live, there are bound to be glitches here and there – if you spot one, please let me know!
Finally, you can read a little bit more about the site, and about me, on the About page.
I hope you enjoy the site!
