- Whack weather situation in SydneyI dunno about you, but I was in Sydney over Christmas and it was too sunny for the beach, too bloody hot to leave the fan (yep, my cousin’s house where I was staying DIDN’T HAVE A/C).
Basically, if global warming keeps doing it’s thing, Sydney’s going to be 55 degrees and uninhabitable in thirty years and who’s going to buy your $2 million studio apartment then, hey?
- You can buy an inner city house for (way) under a million dollars And you know what? Once you’re in Hobart long enough, you’ll be appalled when things sell to mainlanders for over $500,000. You won’t believe they could be so silly.
- In summer/autumn you can pick fruit from the side of the roadIf you live in Hobart and buy fruit during summer, you’re a fool. A drive out to the Huon Valley and you’ll find rogue apple trees and blackberry bushes by the acre. It’s so great, there’s even a map to find your fruit.
- HO*BARTER HO*BARTER is a Facebook page where you’ll barter for any good you can think of. If you’ve too many lemon trees in your backyard, and need a new toaster – let these punks know! I’ve seen beds, couches, old cameras, food, pretty much anything you can think of find homes on this page. It’s a really wonderful community.
- The BeachesYou’ve been tricked into thinking Sydney’s beaches are the best. But do you really want to to be swimming in a sea of poo with thousands of other people on the hottest days of the year?
That will NEVER happen to you in Tasmania. For a start, you’re lucky if there’s twenty people on a beach at any time. And, there’s a secret no one is letting you in on: the beaches aren’t much colder than the east coast beaches. In fact, on a hot summer day they feel exactly the same. The water is pristine and in some spots you can even shuck your own oysters. Actual paradise.
