Artarmon

Where is the world's only eight-lane pedestrian/cycleway? See it from the Pacific Highway at Artarmon. It must be the only one, surely.


Ashcroft

Why do these marks appear alongside the gutters in so many Ashcroft streets?

The mystery has been solved by resident Ron: The grooves are the result of the evening out of the road and gutter levels after damage to car suspensions.


Balgowlah

Why does this New Street East path in Balgowlah suddenly change its mind? Why does it then give up altogether?


Balmain

Where in Sydney do you find street signs telling you that you must park on the footpath? In Balmain. Marvel at this regulation in Phillip and Short Streets. (See below for example.)

Balmain

You won’t find it in street directories. In fact, you’ll be lucky to find it at all. But this narrow path stretches for 200 metres into the background to link Balmain’s Beattie Street with Little Beattie, Theodore, Little Theodore and Llewellyn Streets. They comprise one magic kingdom.


Bexley North

Fortescue Lane, Bexley North, doesn't carry much traffic even in peak hour now.
