2 weeks agoAustralia / Canberra : RiotACT

Have you had the QT experience yet? If you haven’t been to the revamped Rydges Lakeside, now known as QT, you really need to put it at the top of your priority list! I was lucky enough to have the whole QT experience this week when I stayed in the 1920’s style hotel. The rooms are [...]

Is it a Quanger?

2 weeks agoAustralia / Canberra : RiotACT

Thought Rioters might appreciate this light-hearted dig at Queanbeyan by Canberra rap duo Coda Conduct, which aired on Triple J’s breakfast show this week. The Canberra Times wasn’t that impressed, but I reckon it’s awesome. “Canberra! We get a light rail and we a damn sight better with a Skywhale. But meanwhile when we had it, Queanbeyan went [...]

Cheap parking in Civic during weekdays?

2 weeks agoAustralia / Canberra : RiotACT

I’m hoping the RA brains trust will be able to help me out here… Where are the best (by this I mean cheapest) places to park Monday to Friday in/around the city? I’m not adverse to a bit of a walk each way if it means saving a few thousand a year! Alternatively, does anyone have experience [...]

A Look Around Canberra: Latham

2 weeks agoAustralia / Canberra : RiotACT

This week I was in and out of Latham a handful of times because one of the cat rescue groups I help out with occasionally is located there (Pickles Playmates Animal Rescue, for those wondering).

Top Canberra day trips

2 weeks agoAustralia / Canberra : RiotACT

I’m a big fan of road trips and regularly get in the car on a weekend to explore. I’ve found there are a lot of places around Canberra within a two- or three-hour drive that cater for most tastes. Of course, there are beaches on the New South Wales south coast to explore although I try [...]

Ghost at Fassifern?

2 weeks agoAustralia / Canberra : RiotACT

I’ve done a few tests of aerial video over Fassifern Homestead at the end of Ginninderra Drive in Dunlop because it’s close by and fenced off. A friend of mine remembers going there as a kid to ride horses. I was a bit surprised to hear a rumour that people think it is haunted. Does [...]

ACT rego stickers…or lack thereof!

2 weeks agoAustralia / Canberra : RiotACT

What happens in the ACT if you don’t receive your rego renewal? Well, I can tell you that you get a rather large fine! I was pulled over by one of the police cars who do the plate recognition, and the police officer told me that I was not registered. To my knowledge this was not true, [...]

Primary school for Page residents?

2 weeks agoAustralia / Canberra : RiotACT

We’ve recently bought a house in Page and will be moving to Canberra in May with our kids aged four and six. Apparently we’re not able to enrol in pre-school/primary school until we are actually in Canberra (sounds like a crazy rule to me), but we would like to know more about the schools before we [...]
