This report presents outcomes from a collaborative research project between the Office of Environment and Heritage (OEH) and the University of Technology Sydney (jointly funded by OEH and the Australia Research Council under its Linkage program). The project set out in 2005 to study the parklands along the Georges River from the perspective of people of Aboriginal, Anglo-Celtic, Arabic and Vietnamese background who live in the suburbs bordering the river.

This report deals mainly with the distinctive ways that people of Arabic and Vietnamese background perceive, value and use the parklands along the Georges River.
