This image was made in a section in which some restoration work was recently undertaken. The creek runs through suburbia, at the rear of housing whose back fences close off their view and connection to the watercourse behind them. The fact that the houses face their backs to the creek is curiously dismissive of the creek’s significance in this ancient flat landscape, something I have previously commented about.

Although not readily visible in the photograph, immediately behind the paperbarks are houses and grey super six fencing. The fencing travels almost the entire length of both sides of the shallow depression that contains Bannister Creek.
