Police on John Cleeland

By 21 April 2008

While I was driving to work this morning, just after 8am, I noticed an Action bus stopped by the bus stop on John Cleeland Street in Florey.  It was surrounded by police cars and orange witches hats.  I couldn’t see anyone milling around or signs of an accident.
Anyone know what occurred?

Filming at the Botanic Gardens

By 17 December 2007

More than usual action occurring at the Botanic Gardens on Sunday – filming was occurring in the Rainforest Gully.  Not sure about the type of film but there were clues – I saw an actor in full traditional Japanese dress, and there were a lot of samuri swords about the place!

Red Hill Restaurant & Snippedy Do Dah

So…how does one go about this?  I [...]

Electric Canvas at the National Gallery

By 10 October 2007

Has anyone seen the light display at the National Gallery?  Apparently it is called ‘Electric Canvas’ and is on from 6 – 10 until the 15th, and there will be projections of ‘famous works of art’ on two sides of the building.
I rang the NGA but they didn’t have a lot of details – has [...]

What’s doing on Coulter Drive?

By 27 September 2007

Went down Coulter Drive at 9am, just before the lights on William Hovell, and there was a big operation going on.  At least three police cars pulling drivers over.  At first I thought it was a breath test, but I think they were checking tyres with some sort of calliper arrangement.  Hard to be sure because [...]
