Canberra team tackles poverty one step at a time

3 weeks agoAustralia / Canberra : RiotACT

When travel agents recommend that holidaymakers take in the sights and sounds of New Zealand on foot, they probably don’t mean trekking 100km of stunning but gruelling terrain in just 36 hours. The 100km Oxfam Trailwalker event to be held at Lake Taupo in March is definitely no holiday. And members of the Canberra Crawlers, the [...]

Get outdoors and enjoy these hikes around Canberra

3 weeks agoAustralia / Canberra : RiotACT

If you’re looking for ideas to get out and enjoy Canberra’s summer days while they last, I’ve recently discovered some great hikes less than an hour from Canberra City.

Blind company recommendations?

3 weeks agoAustralia / Canberra : RiotACT

My partner and I desperately need to replace the blinds in our loft style apartment. Because the window is five metres high we need someone install the blinds for us. We do not want curtains. I was hoping people on here could recommend (or tell me to stay clear) of blind companies/installers in Canberra? I’m feeling a bit [...]

Andrew Senti and Alex Cannell started Canberra IT services firm Sennell during the peak of the global financial crisis.

Cheap eats – Tupelo Coffee Co (Civic)

3 weeks agoAustralia / Canberra : RiotACT

One of the great things about Tupelo Coffee Co, which recently opened on Alinga Street, is its simplicity. It’s not pretentious or intimidatingly trendy, as can be the case with coffee shops that take their craft seriously. The interior is sparsely decorated with indoor plants and wooden furniture that owner Nic Walker (pictured above) built himself, and [...]

3 weeks agoAustralia / Canberra : RiotACT

If you don’t like to have fun unless there’s a tangible, measurable health benefit (i.e. you’re the sort of person who doesn’t eat fairy bread at birthday parties and plays Wii Fit instead of real video games), I have four words for you: Indoor trampoline fitness classes. Indoor trampoline park Sky Zone opened at Westfield Belconnen [...]

Can any of our local online retailers compete with the service we can get overseas?

3 weeks agoAustralia / Canberra : RiotACT

Last week, I ordered a few things from Marks & Spencer online (M&S is possibly the thing I miss most about living in the UK). They had free international delivery on orders over 30 pounds which was a bit of a bonus. To my great delight and surprise, after placing the order on Monday evening, [...]

Open house or house party?

3 weeks agoAustralia / Canberra : RiotACT

At least once in your life you’ve probably been to an open home. Whether you’re looking for a rental property or to make more of a long term commitment and buy a property, an open home is always involved. I used to feel a bit awkward going to them, especially if the owner or tenant was [...]

Best of Canberra – Dumplings

3 weeks agoAustralia / Canberra : RiotACT

What do China, Poland, Italy and Brazil have in common? Apart from being on my bucket list, these countries all claim ownership of some sort of variation on the food that we in Australia know as ‘dumplings’. While Poland’s pierogi, Italy’s ravioli and Brazil’s pastels are not to be taken for granted, the Chinese have Canberra’s dumpling [...]

Tech start up CutOrange takes sports clubs online

3 weeks agoAustralia / Canberra : RiotACT

The ACT has one of the highest sport participation rates in the country, with over 35 per cent of locals playing sport on a regular basis, according to recent census data. That’s a lot of registration forms, and a lot of administrative work, particularly when paper-based processes and manual cash handling are involved. But now, Canberra [...]
