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
A walk around St Kilda mangroves was people's idea of fun in the 80s.
Around the same time as crabbing, albeit of a different version, was reaching its zenith in the Vic version.

There are 2 separate Norwood Football Clubs.
The Redlegs in the SANFL and one in the EFL.


There's also a Tasmanian suburb/city that shares its name with a lesser known Victorian suburb.
I think either Burnie or Launceston or another name.
Norwood is an up-market (by local standards, so not up-market all) suburb of Launceston.

Norwood is an up-market (by local standards, so not up-market all) suburb of Launceston.

If one wanted to, they'd go to Norwood Primary School in Tassie, Norwood High School in Victoria and, if they were good enough to get drafted or not drafted, they'd move to South Australia and work in one of Norwood's businesses while playing for the Redlegs.

Google Maps has just shown me another Campbelltown/Campbell Town in Tassie and, like Victoria, they have an Avoca and Lilydale as well as Beaconsfield.

Regarding that place in Victoria I thought was Devonport or Burnie, turns out it's Glenorchy.

Perth, the Western Australian capital shares its name with a central northern Tasmanian town just south of Launceston.
There's a town called Brighton about thirty clicks north of Hobart that shares its name with suburbs of the same name in Brisbane, Adelaide, Melbourne and Perth.
Glenorchy, a city in Hobart's northern suburbs shares its name with similar named small towns in Victoria and New South Wales.
New Town, a suburb about 3kms north of Hobart has a namesake (although spelled differently) called Newtown in Sydney.
Waverley, a housing commission suburb in Launceston on the road out towards Scottsdale shares with Waverley in outer Melbourne where VFL Park used to be.

It's not a suburb of Sydney. It's a suburb in Newcastle.

There is no suburb in Vic called Waverley and VFL Park is and has always been in the suburb of Mulgrave. There is also a Mulgrave in NSW.

I started school at Surrey Hills Primary. When I left there it started a run of three different schools across three states inside a year. As a result, even from a very young age I became a very firm believer in the need for a national curriculum.
