North-South Divide, or 10 things I like about…

By rosebud - 22 August 2008 93

Top 10 things I like about the Northside:

— Walking up to Mt Ainslie from behind the War Memorial, particularly when the Balloons are up and there is snow on the mountains
— Dickson pool in summer
— Lonsdale St trendy shops
— Corroboree Park trees
— The Dendy
— Bollywood Marsala Indian takeaway at Dickson
— The AIS learn to swim program (I love the idea of kids learning to swim at an elite athlete college!)
— Cycling to work in 10 minutes…downhill!
— Gorman House
— Not living in Weston Creek!

What’s Your opinion?

Top things I like about the southside.
– Not being northside..
– being walking distance to point hut crossing, where you AND your dog can go for a swim in summer
– Being able to watch the sunset/sunrise over the mountains
– Not living near any large flat complexes
– more affordable housing
– Vegetarian house at Tuggeranong
– quick drive to being away from any houses
– the fact that I live there makes its all the more a desirable place to live..

10 things i like about southside.
(Or, the first ten things that spring to mind.)

1. It’s not northside!
2. We dont have a pathetic excuse of a road called the gungahlin drive extention.
3. We’re closer to the snow.
4. We dont have Charnwood, where people get stabbed going to the local takeaway. Our only comparisation, Kambah, stuff like that doesnt happen. Clealy we’re better.
5. Where did the kangeroo cull happen? Belconnen. Down our way, that’d never happen.
6. Point Hut Crossing. It’s such a better place to watch the sunset.
7. Dendy is an overpriced consumeristic piece of shit. Hoyts is cheaper!
8. The tuggeranong parkway is named after Tuggeranong. Not Belconnen. Clearly whoever named it was a southsider?
9. We have only one Krispy Kreme, compared to the two that you lot have. So, clearly, we like our arteries the way they are over here more.
10. We’re not as close to frigging queanbeyan as nothside is!

Northside is good because:

It has an arcade
Theres lots of nice places to eat
Its easier to get to most events/friends from (nearly everyone I know seems to be a Northsider)
More happens
Less bogans

Southside is good because:

Kambah Village has metal sheep and its handy
There are lots of ovals and nice places to walk
Close to Woden and Tugg shopping centres
Less yuppies

Well, good point. They are pretty much everywhere. Kambah and Weston Creek are brimming with bogans and so is Civic.
Can you guess where I live 😀

It’s all northside really.
One is the fantastic northside of Canberra and the other is the dreary northside of Cooma.

I fail to see the legitimacy of this argument. Northsiders want to lord it over Southsiders because “we have Gorman House”? Southsiders prefer it because “we have two Hoyts to choose from”???

Christ, you don’t own something because it’s on your side of the lake. Canberra’s really not that big, and we have those things…. um…. what are they called? Oh yeah, Bridges, that enable the fine folk from the North to visit the South (and vice versa) any time they like, at minimal cost to their petrol budget and time schedule.
