Australia's Tallest Man-Made Waterfall Is Making A Splash In Sydney
- Parents Only
Three years in the making, the largest man-made waterfall in the southern hemisphere has been revealed in Sydney. Stretching a whopping seven storeys in height, the jaw-dropping aquatic structure is the signature feature of the $400-million Waterfall by Crown Group, a residential development in Waterloo dubbed “an urban sanctuary, inspired by nature”.
In keeping with its tranquil ambitions, the development also includes lush, tropical gardens and a serene lagoon with bamboo walkways. However, the 331 apartments are not without their creature comforts, as the estate boasts luxuries like an outdoor rooftop cinema and infinity pool and spa, a rope walk park, and a trendy retail and cafe precinct.
There's also a children's play space and a public art installation by Mika Utzon Popov (grandson of Jorn Utzon, the architect behind the Sydney Opera House).
The 22-metre-high waterfall boasts four weirs, designed to create a realistic impression of separate waterfalls at different heights cascading down the side of the complex. The waterfall is only visible from with the development, giving the oasis a Zen-like ambience amid the inner city chaos and connecting residents to nature.
Waterfall by Crown Group is at 18-20 O'Dea Avenue, Waterloo.
