We live in a narrow street in Crace – 6 m of asphalt – with no parking restrictions, no parking bays and, except for one house, no driveways. Fine at the moment, but a development has been approved – yes we put in a representation – for across the road that will see twelve new [...]
Does anyone know of a current training group here in Canberra for parkour/free running? Details appreciated. Google is little help. Most/all stuff is old.
Before Rove Live, Talking About Your Generation, and The Project made him a household name, Charlie Pickering was at the top of his game as a stand-up comedian. Witty, inventive, and edgy, Pickering toured the world, selling out shows from Melbourne to Edinburgh. Now he’s hitting the stage again to say the stuff he can’t [...]
After several years of trying to have staff in our small community service organisation’s office take more responsibility for keeping the kitchen clean, I’m surrendering and looking for a cleaning service. We don’t need a full service, just kitchen and bins and vaccuuming, and occasionally a blitzkrieg against the clandestine biological warfare experiments being conducted in [...]
We have a wall of new built-in bookcases which, after my well-meaning but amateurish start, now need the professional touch so that they match the woodwork in our new house. So we need a fastidious professional painter who does small jobs willingly. Any suggestions?
Justsomeaussie sent this in challenging the notion that we’ve had a housing bubble in the inner south that’s going to ‘burst’. What are your thoughts? Is housing in Canberra over priced? due to crash or will we just see stagnation for a while?
I’m not making it news, I just need people’s advice how to handle this situation. Due to the nature of this problem, if you want to make joke, please go away as I’m serious. If you offer help, much appreciated. I’m living in a house, the next house’s window opens to our windows very closely. I [...]
Hi all, I’m new to Canberra and have just bought an enduro bike (with full rego). As I don’t have a ute or trailer at the moment to go out to trails like Bendethera etc. – are there any fire trails or national park areas that aren’t too far out of Canberra? I’m really not fussy any dirt at [...]

Despite the heading sounding vaguely like a misdirected personals ad, I am, in fact, not looking for love, but a book keeper for my business. I’m a sole trader myself and would like to support another sole trader, preferably in the Inner North, but I’ll take quality over convenience. Can anyone make a recommendation to me, please? All [...]
Hi, I am looking to join a sports or other social club in Canberra to get involved in the community and to meet some new friends. Anyone knows any interesting groups in Canberra?

Greeting Rioters, My summer veggie patch is going busters at the moment. Lots of tomatoes, herbs, corn, zucchinis, eggplant, spinach and all the other usual suspects. Having a great time eating from my own garden. However, it’s got me thinking about the winter crop. Broccoli, sprouts, beans etc. When/how is the best time to get these things going? [...]
Ok, back by popular demand. knock yourselves out.
Just a reminder to everyone that that much loved festival of multiculturalism, beer and meat on a stick is happening this week end. Meat on a stick started as a traditional festival in the 1600’s BC shortly after Can’tberra became a local meeting place. With the arrival of sailing ships, sheep, and the Snowy Mountains [...]
well hello again, hive mind. i have been asked to post here to inquire into your experiences – preferably the positive ones, but do tell the dirt! – and contacts for a reliable and inexpensive handyperson[/s], who would be tasked with repairing/replacing an internal door, repairing some door frames and door locks, and doing some internal [...]
My Toyota car is due for 80,000 km car service. I’ve been going to Toyota for car services previously. For this major service, Toyoto gave me a quote for $750. It is going to be a huge bill for me. I am wondering if anyone knows any good cheaper auto service in Canberra who are [...]
I am VERY excited to be starting my degree this year as a full time student at the University of Canberra. I have studied before – back when I was ‘meant’ to – fresh from Year 12 – but a love of coffee breaks and sleep-ins meant I was less than successful and ended up [...]
