Glenbrook Lagoon Storymap: an (extra) ordinary public space

This storymap explores some of the natural and cultural aspects of Glenbrook Lagoon, an (extra) ordinary public space located in the suburb of Glenbrook, within the Blue Mountains region of New South Wales, on the lands of the Dharug and Gundungurra Country.

The lagoon is a natural waterbody that provides habitat for plant and animal life, fed by water run-off from surrounding areas that eventually flows into the Dyarrubin (Nepean) river.

It is not a manicured space or prominent tourist attraction within the wider national park area. Rather, Glenbrook Lagoon is an ordinary everyday public space, most frequented by local residents who tread it’s well-used and well-worn walking paths.
