Established areas Koories inhabited

Koori people from the north are establishing themselves in rental housing around Balmain. People from the west live in Redfern and people from the south coast are tending to live in Matraville and La Perouse. During the Depression, Many homeless and unemployed, including Koori people, live under the arches of the Wentworth Park railway bridge at Blackwattle Bay. ‘Happy Valley’ (also known as ‘Frogs Hollow’, is settled by the homeless or unemployed in the area around Little Bay. A large number of Koori people live amongst everyone else in this huge camp of every ethnicity. They don’t live on La Perouse because some don’t want to, some are refused entry by the manager, and some are not welcome to the reserve community.
