Stanmore

The northern half of the lane between Margaret Street and Corunna Road, Stanmore, is not recommended for cars and is barely recommended for humans. However it is trafficable for smaller animals. This is the narrowest lane that Alan has conquered.

Vaucluse

The brighter residents of Vaucluse can work that out all by themselves. This is the only entrance to Ashgate Avenue, which comprises a set of steps and a short, dead-end pathway.

Wakeley

No suburb could beat Wakeley's record of having a street name starting with more than four consecutive consonants, could it?(see below).


Wakeley

Nearby Horningsea Park steals the record with a five-consonant start to one of its streets!


 

Waverton

Where can you find an unsealed road only a five-minute drive from the harbour bridge? Not only unsealed, but a grass road? In Waverton. It's Woolcott Avenue, with steps at one end and a barrier at the other, on the Waverton Park boundary.


Woodbine

Is it Palm Close or Palm Court? And should the sign be high or low? Problem solved in Woodbine.

Zetland

Zetland is alphabetically Sydney’s last suburb, and one of the last suburbs for trying to find a parking spot, especially in Joynton Avenue. But where there’s a will there’s a way.


We asked how to pronounce Silverwater's Slough Street, and how many other ways there are to pronounce "ough". "Slough" is as in brow. There are nine pronunciation variations. The others are as in ought, though, through, thorough, cough, rough, hiccough (the old spelling of hiccup) and lough (old spelling of "loch").
