Austral

Which suburb has the highest number for a Sydney street name? There are 34 suburbs with a First Avenue/Street etc, but the title was fought out by Austral and West Hoxton. Austral cheated by starting their count at number four (they have no First, Second or Third).

Austral

West Hoxton got back at Austral by stealing this street, which is really in Austral, not West Hoxton. By the way, how should you spell 28? Like in this photo? Or…
(Also see the previous photo and the next four photos)


Austral

… with a space between the Twenty and Eight? Or…

Austral

Austral

There's no street named 31st in Sydney (as you'd expect since seven months have claimed that number), but a street on the border of Austral and West Hoxton achieved top prize with 33. Street signposts in the 30s are apparently popular with souvenir hunters, so this is the highest on display.

Can you work out what the number of this street was? We can't.

Balgowlah

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


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.


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.)

Where are you this morning?
I'm in dire straits.
