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?

and as you are coming from struggle town, I will take that as a compliment….

fewer bogans??
fewer bogans??

that is the best one I have heard. If you are a bogan in queanbeyan, and all your mates are bogans, you don’t know any different. I am a bogan, grew up in charny, then evatt in the late 70’s till the mid 90’s, then moved south. I was down the servo last night in my trackies, ugg boots and driving my very old magna. Didn’t buy any winnie blues though. Was listening to cold chisel – last stand, best concert I ever went to, and the backup band was INXS….

I wear a suit to work, a tie, and i can speak gooderer when I need to. I enjoy being a bogan. my boganicity is from charnwood, but since I moved to Kambah, the local bogans seem to be ok with me.

One thing I don’t like about living on the inner Northside is that it takes me just as long to get from O’Connor to Civic in the morning (8-9am peak time) that it does for my fiancee to get to Civic from Garran. Bloody Northbourne Ave is a shocker to try and cross.

Apart from that, it’s bloody sweet. Everything is close except for the south of Tuggeranong and…well who cares about that anyway?

The northside is a nasty old craphole. Queanbeyan is where it’s at… Fewer bogans, too.

I wish they’d build a bridge down at the end of Stockdill drive near the sewerage works then I could get to the rivers in about five minutes.

That would be cool.

We should get someone from the confluence group to add up all those posts in the two camps and see some HARD FACTS and DATA. Percentages, tables, pie charts. The possibilities are endless. I could then prove, empirically, that I like the northside better than Western Creek.

get over it… Im north side – but canberra is too small to be loyal to any side.

It’s still a list of claims very specific to Ainslie/inner north though…& as I pointed out, most of them could be made by people in the inner south.

Overheard 2:32 pm 28 Aug 08

Enjoy the view from the victory dais!

But on the other hand, I lived in Kambah for 11 years and it had a lot going for it too.

I don’t know that I could come up with ten things, but…
