Re: Moving to Sydney

Re: Brisbane vs Sydney...

Re: Good restaurants - Sydney centre

If you don't mind a bit of a walk, get the train to Central, leave at the southern exit onto Chalmers St, and walk up Devonshire St to Crown St - ten minutes. You'll pass a few pubs - Royal...

Re: Sydney - Crossing in amber and Traffic Light Camera Flashed

If it is your first ever offence, there's no harm in writing to them, give them a sob story about not being used to NSW roads, etc. It sometimes works. I got off a speed camera fine in Henry Lawson...

I'm pretty sure that the orginal 'Ten Pound Poms' had to stay two years or repay the cost of the ticket in full?

Re: Why Australia will never become a first world country

You can always find a horror story in any country if you go looking for it. I remember seeing a doco in the UK about two families who had employed two builders to do a renovation. One family employed...

Re: Approx 3/4 hour commute to SYD

Maybe around Revesby/Panania which is on the East Hills line so goes through the airport. Not sure if the price range will be suitable, perhaps if you go for an older style fibro home.

Re: 4 days in Sydney

Why not be what I like to call an 'un-tourist' and just go where you please, with no planned itinerary. I like to pick a station or a suburb at random and go there, walk around, have a drink, a meal,...
