It’s such a bitch of a day outside today, I thought I would be brave and attempt to start a very important thread.
I would like to posit that the ACT is very unique in Australia in that it is home to possibly the nation’s only two towns – or localities – that traverse a state border.
That is to say, Williamsdale and Royalla, are to be found in both the ACT and NSW. People (not the same people) can be found happily living on both sides of the state border in these places – and the place name and the postcode is the same on both sounds of the state line. Only the jurisdiction changes.
I know of no other instance of this in Australia. (Before you suggest Hall – only the ACT side is officially known as Hall; cross the border into NSW and, officially, you enter Wallaroo or Spring Range.)
Am I wrong? Do I have too much time on my hands?
