Canberra Home Delivery Food?

By 25 October 2014 6

I've just moved to Canberra and quite like it... except for the take-away and home delivery choices (or at least those I've found so far). Why does Pad Thai cost $16.50 (Lemon Grass)? In Sydney $12 is expensive. Same goes for Indian food... curries at $17-20 is a rip-off for take away. And why n...

Filter Turns

By 1 December 2009 34

Now I have ranted on this topic previously but thought with the number of road-based posts cropping up recently I thought I would add a post to gauge what others see in this. My gripe with ACT has always been the use of red arrows to prevent drivers turning right at all times day or night, even w...

Lack of speed limit signs up to Northbourne RL/Speed Camera

By 29 November 2009 40

So I'm sick of writing directly to our Minister for Transport (Stanhope) every time I find what I view as a major flaw with something on ACT's roads... I'll still be doing that in this case, but thought I'd rant on here as well. Northbound traffic on Commonwealth Avenue is now greeted with a sole...

Canberra Dental Surgeons
