“Galore”, the feature film which wrapped production in Canberra just on 12 months ago has released a teaser trailer, in conjunction with their official selection to the Berlin International Film Festival.
Many locals appeared in the film as extras (and even bit-parts), and several of the crew were recruited from the local film community. [...]

This event has grown significantly over the last three years to become one of the largest community Christmas events in Canberra. This year the Vikings Group are again the main supporter, but have been joined by [...]
Northsider heading South, looking for a Kids Indoor playground in the Tuggeranong area. Does such a beast exist?
Does anyone have any idea what is going on the land opposite Bunnings at Tuggeranong at all?
Noticed they have fences up but yet to see any signage as to what is going here.
Andrew Barr has put forth word on the grandly titled “Southquay” development for the somewhat more prosaic Lake Tuggeranong:
Work is about to start on Southquay, a new mixed use development on the shores of Lake Tuggeranong, which will see the construction of up to 1,000 dwellings and more than 3,000 square metres of commercial space. [...]

The TCC will meet at 7.30pm on Tuesday 6 August 2013 in the upstairs formal dining room at the Southern Cross Club in Greenway.
On 14 June 2013 I sent the ACT Chief Minister the following email:
Urgent action required! Danger to life and property in the Homeworld carpark
Some time ago the rows in the Homeworld carpark in Tuggeranong were changed from 2 way to 1 way. (I make this statement assuming that my interpretation of the evidence [...]
ACT Policing is seeking witnesses to multiple incidents of vehicle damage that occurred in Tuggeranong early this morning (Tuesday, July 9).
Around 12.15am, two males were leaving the car park at Reed Street in Greenway (opposite Tuggeranong Hyperdome) when they were approached by two males from a vehicle (described as an older maroon coloured Holden Commodore) [...]
The latest quarterly crime statistics for the ACT have been released and they’re presented on a rather nice interactive map that allows us to examine what has been reported and where.
Jumping backwards in time the numbers get larger which certainly is a good sign, still the current numbers are a little concerning when viewed alone.
ACT Policing has issued a warning regarding the dangers of entering or sleeping in dumpster bins following an incident earlier this morning (Saturday, June 15).
Around 4.40am Tuggeranong Patrol members responded to a report of a 15-year-old teenager trapped in the rear compactor of a commercial garbage truck.
The driver of the vehicle had emptied several large [...]
This seemed too good to just be bundled up with next Monday’s parking photos.
Rioter Wayne has sent us in this shot of an underpass between Waramanga and Chifley (near the Tuggeranong Parkway). Can you notice anything in this underpass that should not be there?
Evidently it’s a stolen car, and the owner is responsible for coming [...]
Nathan has sent us more photos of the dark brooding fog that rested over our little city on Sunday morning.
Please find attached some foggy pics from around Tuggeranong yesterday morning – can’t remember the last time I’d seen the fog lift so late…
I assume he trailed off at the end there because something nightmarish came [...]
Member for Brindabella Andrew Wall has called upon the Government to crack down on reckless driving in the South of Canberra.
Called upon is code for “I’ve got no answers, but I’m employed to point fingers at the current government and by howdy I’m going to!”
“There are numerous examples of burnouts and other reckless behaviour [...]
Well, they’ve done it! The government has laid out their “speed cushions” on the streets around Tuggeranong. Just a single trip around these streets has highlighted some problems…
– They’ve succeeded in slowing traffic, however they now have the problem that traffic has been slowed beyond the 40km/h goal. Every time I went on those streets [...]
It is pleasing to see the TCC President is finally focussing on areas in the Valley apart from his beloved Calwell.
Perhaps my reports are starting to hit home. The latest is that he has launched a petition calling on the federal government to keep and even boost the number of public servants in the [...]
Gelato Mio, has opened at the Hyperdome which sells locally produced Gelati and claims them to be authentically Italian. I have missed having reasonable access to good Gelati and so have vested and deeply selfish interest in encouraging this one to commercial success.
After braving the delights of shepherding some younger relatives through their retail [...]
A dear friend of mine irregularly sends me snaps of the charity token bins at his local Waitrose supermarket in Suffolk. After discovering a similar arrangement at The Good Guys we did a brief desktop analysis.
The major findings were that:
— Tuggeranong likes Jamie Oliver better than Suffolk;
— The English support historic and [...]
Another from the unending fun of Tuggers Homeworld.
What sort of Drugs do they keep there during the day?
An excellent question.
Seen something interesting around Canberra? Own a fancy futuristic phone? You know what to do.
It seems there is a crash just about every morning on the parkway at the moment.
They are doing roadworks everywhere so the traffic every morning/afternoon is crazy.
Also what’s the go with the speed bumps and crossing they have put in on McCullock St in Curtin,
I know people need to cross the road [...]
I have just read a media release from the new president of the Tuggeranong Community Council.
It seems the TCC is so eager to see Zed in Federal Parliament it has already crowned him “Senator” Seselja. (Hope that goes down well with Gary Humphries and his supporters) Doesn’t the TCC realise there needs to be [...]
Mayor Rattenbury is asking for public input on plans for the Tuggeranong Town Park:
“A draft master plan has been developed to guide future management, maintenance and upgrade of the park over the next five to ten years as funding opportunities become available. I encourage people to review the plan and provide comments during the consultation [...]
It was good to see the Chief Minister, Katy Gallagher at the last Tuggeranong Community Council Meeting. More than 60 people were at the meeting and asked her many questions about Tuggeranong, public transport, health, planning and development, aircraft noise and Tralee just to mention a few.
It was a very good night, spoiled only [...]
Many voters in Tuggeranong are seething, me for one.
After serving less than four months as the member for Brindabella, Zed has announced he is doing a runner and setting his sights on the Big House on the Hill.
Steve Dozpott was sent packing to Molonglo because, so we were told, Zed wanted to serve [...]
I have just received the agenda for the next Tuggeranong Community Council meeting. The guest speaker will be the Chief Minister, Katy Gallagher. Perhaps she will take the time to explain why Tuggeranong is treated as the poor cousins of Canberra.
I also note that eyesore they call the Namadgi Bridge is getting a new coat [...]
ACT Policing has released its latest quarterly CrimeStatistics for 2012, which show the majority of offences reported to police have decreased when compared with the same period in 2011.
