We’ve been in Canberra eight months, and we love it. But we’re still stupid newbies, and we’d love some local wisdom on two questions that have us stumped. We hope you don’t mind us asking here!
1. Can anyone tell us the backstory behind all the stuffed toys attached to trees along Bungendore Road?
2. Our tap aerators seem to get clogged all the time with a white, tasteless, slightly crumbly substance. We presume it is a local mineral deposit in the water but we can’t figure out what it is. (It isn’t salt). Does anyone know? Is there anything we can do to prevent it? The ones on the sinks are easily cleaned, but the shower head is a royal pain to unclog.
Thanks for your patience and insight!
