My friend's daughter was a doctor at the hospital in Newcastle but she and her husband have moved to Queensland now. BTW 206609 how about a name and an intro on your 'Space' would not go amiss.

smiley - cheers. I'm a h2g2 guru. Gurus are volunteers who try to find answers to problems researchers come up against when using h2g2. There is a list of gurus on my page which you can see if you click on my name at the top of this post.

I lived in Canberra from age 10 to after Uni at 22 or so, before coming to the UK.

I think the article gives a good history, and manages to cover the lack of things to do (a perennial problem when the grandchildren visit my parents). We've been to Tidbinbilla many times...

It's a place to live, but not much more. I hate to think what my school-friends are doing these days.

Well I am still living canberra... what about Gininderra? Good thing I don't live there as it doesnot exist acording to this guide.
Oh come on, we are the bloody capital after all, and we have a very interesting if not some what boring history and yeah the only 3 pubs porblem kindof gets on your nerves.
However there is one thing you should notice about Canberra and that is there are no posters anyware. You not allowed to post bills exept in offical areas. It is however something you don't notice until you leve.
And in my 19 years here have only ever seen 1 polaticion, I don't know why people complain about them being here. There here for a maximum of 6 months a year and even then they never go outdoors. Why complain?
