Rhodes and Meadowbank are two inner-west suburbs of Sydney, which are silent spectators of the beauty and grandeur of Parramatta River. Meadowbank is located in the northern bank of the famed Sydney waterway, whereas Rhodes sits on its southern bank.
Both have bike lanes (Our photos were taken when we had another day preparing for Spring Cycle 2012.) and parks, where one can gallivant under the scorching sun, as well as bond with your families and friends while being entertained by the chirping of various birds and the swaying of flowers and leaves.
While cruising our way into the suburbs, numerous modern and sassy-looking units will make you want to live in the area. Aside from these apartment blocks that line the bank of the Parramata River, one can numerous things to do, like shopping in nearby shopping-centres (Posh Rhodes Shopping Centre is around the area) or just plain wandering in the beautiful enclaves of these suburbs.
Rhodes and Meadowbank reflect urban development at its best. Both suburban developments reveal that urban development can work well together with the preservation of the environment when urban planning and management are made possible.
