Tom Uren was a well-known and much loved Balmain resident. After his years away at war, boxing and working for the Labor movement, he enjoyed walking the streets of Balmain in his retirement.
His death last year was the catalyst for local residents and council to work together to honour his memory with a walking trail around the streets he knew so well.
The trail chosen was one Tom's favourites.
It takes in many of the various water views and parks on our peninsula.

Nowadays Mort Bay only hosts ferries and small boats. But in Tom's youth, Mort Bay was a working dry dock - busy, smelly and noisy.
