Bridgewater, SA and Bridgewater, Tas couldn't be more unalike. The Bridgewater in the hills, whilst not quite as nice as nearby Stirling, is still a decent quaint town. Bridgewater in Tasmania on the other hand is easily one of the most dero places in the country unless things have changed.
There's a Stirling in Perth too, it's not up in the hills though, it's more towards the coast.

Not the exact same as Victoria's Fitzroy, but WA has the Fitzroy River and a hole of a town called Fitzroy Crossing way, way up North.

My old man lived in Adelaide's version of St Kilda for about 12 months back when i was about 15/16

Besides the playground, mangroves and people going out there to go crabbing there nothing there

Most illicit behavior would be the kids from Salisbury and surrounding areas who park in the boat ramp carpark at night to smoke bongs
The playground there is bloody awesome though.

I may be wrong but I recall Brighton in Perth being a suburb in the far south, a beach in the north and a housing estate in the far north. Confusing as fu** to a visitor.

I also like that Hove in Adelaide is next to Brighton, just like England.

Yes, you are correct

my post did seem to list it as if it was a bit passé - granted I wouldn't have been there for nearly 15 years so they probably have OH&S'd it up by now and made it lame..

hopefully not
