The cafes along Arden Street are prime real estate. Literally across the road from the sparkling blue waters of Coogee Beach, they have the kind of view that most businesses only dream of. So when the good folk behind Café Congo decided to close up shop after more than two decades late last year, Coogee […]

CHRISTMAS PRESENT DRIVE EMBODIES THE SPIRIT OF GIVING

At Christmas time we all focus on those we love. Regardless of whether we believe in God or not, chances are that we believe in family, and Christmas time is when we really sit back, take stock, and appreciate who (and what) we have.

CELEBRATE DIVERSITY AND DELICIOUSNESS AT KINGSFORD NOODLE MARKETS

F**k off ! We’re the People’s Front of Judea!

CEMETERY HERITAGE LISTING LEAVES LOCALS DIVIDED

Brian apprehends a group of people and asks them whether they are the Judean People’s Front. Flabbergasted and provoked, they respond, “F**k off! Judean People’s Front. We’re the People’s Front […]
