Hang in there, folks, the eternal NSW election campaign is almost over

Hang in there, folks, the eternal NSW election campaign is almost over

What an election campaign we’ve been through! What, you didn’t know there was an election on? No, well who could blame you. It has not exactly been an excitement filled exercise these past few weeks, stadium knock down and rebuilds aside. Although in one area the election campaign has been as traditional as any we’ve seen in recent years. And that’s in bringing out all the fringe dwellers from both side of politics. From the left we’ve had the flat earthers demanding that not one more tree be cut between Liverpool and Mittagong in the name of development. Everyone knows… Read more »

Get your questions ready for our A-League club’s forum

Get your questions ready for our A-League club’s forum

Here’s hoping there’s plenty of non soccer people at the Macarthur South West Sydney United community forum next week in Campbelltown and also the next one after that in Cabramatta. Why would I say that? Easy. The success of this club won’t be achieved off the back of just the support of football true believers. What our very own A-League club will need to do is convert as many people s people to the round ball code of football. How you do that will be up to the club and luckily there is plenty of time. Our team won’t kick… Read more »

Could some of these trends be barking up the wrong tree?

Could some of these trends be barking up the wrong tree?

What do you have when you’re in a first world nation? You have first world problems, that’s what. But it’s not just worrying about traffic jams or having too much choice when standing in front of the shampoo display at Woolies or Coles. Being first world also means first world trends, going where no human has been before and who knows where it will all end up. Getting a little tip off from one of our readers of a new place where you can pamper your doggie got me thinking that when it comes to what will be trending in… Read more »

Winged keel, penalty shootout and supercoach

MY personal best sporting moment was coaching the St Andrews under 14s cricket team to a Camden Association premiership more than 20 years ago. Even though it would have been the St Andrews club’s first ever premiership in any age group, I hadn’t anticipated the reaction when my mighty boysRead more »

Summer time means good times

Spring has sprung and summer’s just around the corner. You beauty! We love the seven-eight months of the year when the weather is pleasant enough to discard heavy clothing, so here’s our Top Five things in summer: Number 5: You have been cleaning the pool all winter and the rewardRead more »


Why south west is great

This week’s Top Five takes a look at what we like best about in the great south west of Sydney. It doesn’t really do the place justice to name just five things we like about it, and we’re happy to confess we like many, many more. But rules are rulesRead more »

Number one: Campbelltown Golf Course at Glen Alpine.

Get your golf clubs

OK, boys and girls, get your clubs out, we’re off to the golf course, but the question is, which one? We have plenty to choose from in south west Sydney, from Moorebank’s New Brighton to Picton’s Antill, and lots more in between. But we only have room for five, andRead more »


Here’s cheers to our pubs

This week we do a bit of bar hopping, sort of, in a responsible service of alcohol kind of a way. But seriously, when we say our top five pubs, we’re looking at the ambience, the food, the service, the whole shebang. The days of The Kontos Report just goingRead more »

One way is a slow way: Queen Street, Campbelltown

Traffic jams at every turn

In the second installment of our Top Five we look at the south west region’s busiest roads. Narellan Road, between Campbelltown and Narellan, wins hands down. It is a shocker, not just at peak times. It is undergoing widening, and not before time. But even when that’s completed it’s doubtfulRead more »
