I’m hoping some old-hand, bonafide Canberrans can answer this one for me.
I’m from northern NSW, and I lost all confidence in pronouncing local names after being (vehemently) told that Namadgi is pronounced na-MAD-jy rather than NAM-a-jai, as it would be up north.
So what about Gingera? I climbed it on the weekend, and it was beautiful. But is it GIN-ger-a, JIN-jer-a, gin-GAIR-a, jin-JAIR-a, or some hybrid, like gin-JAIR-a or JIN-ger-a?
And dare I ask about Ginini?
