We have all heard the Sydney hoteliers associations whinging about how all the security was effecting their bookings and how many Sydney-siders were choosing last week to have a break from their fair city.

Well it seems it’s true because I read it in a Blog 😉

Over on Sez Shares Sez has shared her tale of her trip to Canberra were she met real people, enjoyed the shopping!, had good food, went to a great bar, had a great night out, saw some cool touristy things and generally had ‘a good time’.

A Sydney-sider having a good time in Canberra. Strange but true.

Where would you suggest she go/see on her next trip down this way?

i found her post to be quite boring in fact…
and more about name dropping the cafes she went to.. me wonders if perhaps she was paid any money, or gratitudes ?

Mud Wrestling in Canberra! Doesn’t that contravene the ACT Bill of Rights????

Kramer, I’d say that the reason for the outbound-traffic on the Hume Highway was the ending of the Pacific Mud Wrestling Competition which was held here over the weekend. It wasn’t well publicised, yet fun was had by all …

I share your concern Mr E! If we suffer an influx of inner-city Sidney siders they might stay, cluttering up our bars, cafes and nightspots ruining it for the rest of us.

Oh my God – this is terrible: what happens if the word gets around that Canberra isn’t such a bad place after all – there’ll be pretentious snobs from Sydney and Melbourne here every weekend! 🙂

I reckon there might be a few Sydneyites who had a good weekend in Canberra, as the Sydney-bound lanes on the Hume/Federal were packed last night.
