I had a truly minor hit on the side of my old car (1994 model), just a scratch on one side of the back door occurred during a parking manoeuvre.
The person responsible for the damage was kind enough to inform his insurance company (AAMI) to go through the repairing process.
It seems that the repair is [...]
I’m looking for an accountant in Canberra who is good with Xero and patient with very small business owners. Any suggestions?
My tax returns aren’t super complicated, but in addition to a full-time job I run my own business (as a sole trader) on the side. I will also be looking to rent out an investment [...]
I’m pregnant and would appreciate advice on whether to go private or public for antenatal care and delivery in Canberra.
I have an existing medical condition so I would definitely request a caesarean. Would this be guaranteed in a public hospital? Could I choose this from the first trimester and would an obstetrician be available on [...]
The Canberra Times has this week published photos tracing the evolution of Crace from bushland to suburb.
The gutters are nearly touching! Didn’t anyone who built out there want a garden?
Can the people living in Crace open a window without hearing what the neighbours are watching on TV? Can they hear each other when they flush a [...]
Just wondering if you can legally be fined for inputting an incorrect number plate when paying for parking.
The Wilson long-stay carpark behind the Civic police station makes you enter your number plate when you purchase a ticket. I presume this is to stop people handing their ticket to someone else when they happen to [...]
I’m new to Canberra and play fiddle (but not very well). I’m keen to meet up with other not-very-good fiddle players so we can enjoy playing together, without worrying about being a bit rubbish. Anyone interested?!
I figure we can meet in someone’s home, or cheaply rent a church space or something, once a month to share [...]
I was hoping to find a women’s sports team to train with on weeknights or weekends. I haven’t played any team sports in a while but am keen to try something new while also meeting new people (I recently moved interstate).
I’ve had some trouble tracking down info for women wanting to get into a sport [...]
I am just hoping for some advice from other Canberrans who have some experience with installing any of the various types of roof ventilation in their home. Basically what did you pick and why, what was the cost, and was it successful?
We have a small house in a new subdivision that was built in 2012 [...]
Hi all, I’m looking at writing a new book regarding ghosts and hauntings in the Canberra/ ACT area. As such, I would appreciate any stories anyone has and are happy to tell (and have published, anonymously or otherwise).
At present I have manuscript being edited by Schiffer Books in the US regarding UK ghosts and have [...]
Thinking of installing solar power to our house. Orientation is ideal, and whilst not looking to make money, I would love to escape the clutches of ACTEW (or whatever they’re called this week).
Would appreciate any feedback re: supply and installation of (say) a 4Kw system, and how it has performed.

Hello fellow rioters
I recently inherited a BMW K100 (1983). It’s hasn’t run in a fair while and I just want to get it serviced to make sure I don’t ruin anything by getting it going myself and riding it.
Can anyone recommend a bike mechanic in Canberra, maybe one that does BMW and or older bikes?
I am going to borrow home loan from the bank and have three options: fixed rate, variable rate and half and half.
Would you please advise here what option I should take. You are welcome to comment on ‘owner occupier’ or ‘investment’, and three different options because your comment may benefit others even if it does [...]
I recently read an article in which the city of Melbourne gave trees email addresses so citizens could report problems…
“The city of Melbourne assigned trees email addresses so citizens could report problems. Instead, people wrote thousands of love letters to their favorite trees.”…
…”Melbourne’s email-a-tree service is one in a litany of municipal projects aimed at leveraging [...]

I’m rather new to Canberra and have a chronic condition that requires massage and acupuncture when it flares up.
I’ve been looking for someone who does both, but there seem to be a lot of options. I’d like something central to the city if possible, but I could always bus to a great place if it’s [...]
When my wife re-registered her car in the ACT, she selected GIO as the CTPI provider.
Yesterday she had cause to contact the GIO regarding a comprehensive insurance renewal and was advised that her CTPI insurance was not with the GIO and therefore she was not entitled to a discount.
ACT Road Users advised that third party premiums [...]
I’ve recently started working in Belconnen and I’m yet to find a really great coffee shop nearby. Any suggestions?
I really liked Lava when I worked in Phillip, as well as Two Hands, ONA and Celestinos when I was in Fyshwick. Where in Belconnen serves up a comparable flat white?
All suggestions welcome.
