This is why I love the Inner North. Images of Canberra

unicycle

Big trees, lots of greenery, ratty share house nature strips, and dudes on unicycles hammering past.

What’s not to love?

The sense of hopeless surrender to soulless materialism?

The realisation that the chase for baubles is ultimately dehumanising, and ecologically unsustainable?

The inner north is fine, except for the houses.

And the lefty smugness.

Inner north is definitely a good place to be at the moment, despite the niggly invasion of a McMansion here and there..

yeah, the lack of parking, sketchy people and being killed for a mobile phone are really things that attract me to that side of town.

Also, whats with living close to work? I don’t want to see my building every time I get in my car!

haha, yeh I guess, I did get sick of my wife complaining about always being cold with the ducted gas so I installed the biggest slow combustion wood stove on the market.

Tend to fire it up on a Thrsday night and run it until Sunday and use the gas the rest of the week.

The trouble with ducted gas is it is really expensive and it might be a nice 23 degrees inside but if you are just coming in from the cold it takes ages to warm up. Not really suited to Canberra.

I grew up in Dickson and have owned houses in the inner north but I love my McMansion the most.

Whats not to love about a big house with shiny new stuff all through it ?

Inner north is definitely a good place to be at the moment, despite the niggly invasion of a McMansion here and there. Last Sunday night, we in Lyneham were entertained by a concert at the local Vietnamese buddhist temple (aka Qld flood fund raiser). The food was cheap and awesome, and the amped music was … er … interesting.

I’d love to live in the inner north (or inneer south) if I could afford it. It’s a pity that none of the newer suburbs will ever look as good – and some will forever be McMansion-infested slums.

Isnt a ‘McMansion’ a large (and thus expensivish) house, thus unlikely to be in a slum? Well, an economic slum as opposed to an aesthetic slum.

Perhaps you are looking for ‘off the plan boxes in aubergine’ (although shades of brown now appear to be the in colour).

As a long time inner norther, let me tell you there are some absolutely shocking houses in the inner north. Its just that they are older style (thus look ‘quaint’ if nothing else) and the greenery hides a lot of problems.

I recently move from Belcompton to the Inner North and I have to say it’s awesome. Pubs and cafes at the local shops, sub-10 minute trip to work and a sense of community in my street. Love it.

I saw him along the “woden drain” bikepath the other afternoon (the one that goes from phillip college to behind the police station and beyond.
