I know this has been discussed before but the most recent post I can find is a couple of years old.
Does anyone have any recommendations for a Canberra based removalist to move our things to Northern NSW?
In particular I have had a reasonable quote from National Capital Removals at Mitchell – has anyone [...]
Husband has requested an electric shaver for his birthday but I’m completely in the dark about what to get as he’s never had one before.
Can any men-folk recommend an awesome one and the best place to buy them here in Canberra?
Just wondering if anyone has had any positive experiences with kids modelling agencies in Canberra.
I’m considering registering my kids with one, but have heard lots of negative things to be aware of.
Does anyone have any agencies here they would recommend?
I’ve also noticed some of the bigger agencies list themselves as ‘Australia wide’ [...]
Yet again I’m searching for some cool Christmas lights displays I can take the kids to see…
Can anyone recommend houses or particular streets that get into the Christmas spirit and cover their houses with an insane number of pretty lights??
Wondering if someone can provide some info for me. A while back at the ADFA open day there were some working model military boats they were showing in the pool and one of the guys said on the first weekend in December they are having an expo of sorts on the lake.
I’m keen [...]
Hi all…we are celebrating my daughters 7th birthday in November and am after some ideas for a party venue, as our current house isn’t appropriate to hold the party in (ie no shelter outside so if it rains I don’t want suger-hyped kids ransacking the inside!). She has been to a few parties this year [...]
Having had a recent clean out of our bookshelf we have a heap of kids books I’m looking to donate somewhere.
Ideally I’d like them to go somewhere where they’ll really make a difference, like a shelter or struggling Childcare centre.
Short of dropping them in the vinnies bin does anyone have any suggestions?
I’m looking for recommendations of child care or family daycare providers in the Gungahlin area.
Bub #3 is only 4 months and I won’t be needing care until she’s about 2 but I’ve heard you need to put your name down on a waiting list quick sticks.
My other 2 kids are in primary school [...]

I do go on walks etc but want [...]
Having moved here a few months ago I am in desperate need of a decent hairdresser.
By ‘decent’ I mean one who listens to what I want, is good at what they do, one I don’t need to take out a second mortgage on my house to pay for a hair cut, and one that ISN’T [...]
Frustrated is one word I can use to describe how I & my family & friends felt at tonights Skyfire event and I’m certain we’re not alone judging by many complaints I heard from people sitting around us. Myself, husband, 2 kids and our newborn arrived at 6 just in time for the fighter jet [...]
Hi all… I am in search of a good family/kids dentist and a good child psychologist.
We moved here not long ago and we are living Northside, but I’m willing to travel if needed. I have called Smile Lounge and also the ACT health dental clinic and there seem to be minimum 2 month wait [...]
Hi all… being new to the ACT I am keen to find out if there is a Christmas lights competition on here?
Where we moved from one of the radio stations and Energex ran a comp each year and we loved taking the kids out to the ‘awesome’ streets to check out the lights. Is [...]
Hi all…new to the ACT and new to Riot-ACT but i’ve checked it out many times to find reviews and ideas and it’s a great forum I’m keen to find some family friendly places we can go for dinner.
We have 2 kids 6 & 7 (and another on the way) who know [...]
