Our first house swap home is in the leafy northern suburb of Hunters Hill. It’s a comfortable apartment close to all amenities including an excellent coffee shop which we’ve already frequented twice and the local park on the estuary. We have a choice of bus or ferry into the city, both only take 20 minutes or so. Perfect location!
Wendy – a friend of our host – took us to this excellent restaurant in Eastwood the other evening. We knew Australians were famous for their barbies of course, but the Koreans have gone one better and put the barbie in the centre of the table!
One of our first purchases! A new ‘Akubra’ Australian ‘cowboy’ hat.
Apparently the quintessential Australian country dress is an Akubra hat, checked shirt and moleskin trousers… probably with cowboy ( ‘stockman’?) boots. Well I’ve made a start. The rest is to follow. Maybe?
