F&O,

Fawkner, Cambellfield and Craigieburn, being near the airport, are these suburbs under the flight path?

I know in Sydney, one of the City's most popular Italian suburbs Leichardt is right under the flightpath and they comedown pretty low, but when it gets to Sydenham...lets put it this way, you wouldn't be ordering a high tv antenna coz it won't be up for too long...less than a day maybe :lol:
They look to be in a convenient location.

Cheers

I think you missed the smiley faces.. And missed the hint that was being made.

If crime is your big concern then go look at the maps. I'm afraid this isn't the interactive one:

So by that graph you need to buy a boat and anchor it in Port Phillip Bay ☺ No incidents there.:-) Or that other tiny spec up the top....

Alright, now we know how Melbourne CBD's Incident Public Address system works... :(

It used to be a lot better place than Sydney, maybe almost every way except climate, but the gap may have narrowed, I fear..although that probably says more about Melbourne than it does Sydney.

One thing...you, once more, have a "police force".

We, meanwhile, have a 'police service".

When you have been here a little longer and watched some more news, you get what is going on with that.

Sadly have since learnt our tragic loss on Friday was none other than Chief Barista of Pelegrinis... a Melbourne institution frequented by many a cyclist, Vespa scooterer & hoards of CBD cubicle dwellers.

Vale, Sisto :(

Yeah I was saddened by this as Pellegrini's is and always has been my favourite cafe, although I don't get in there as much as I did previously...

Very sad.
Mmm, SunTour
