Spring in the air in Sydney

Posted on August 15, 2009 at 11:49 0 Comments

The sun has been shining down on Sydneysiders, with a temperature of 22 degrees today. The summer clothing was pulled from the back of closets around the City and given a well earned airing. But will it last and should we tempt fate by packing away the winter woollies and Ugg boots? Well, we've been advised it could reach 28 degrees tomorrow! The beaches will be mobbed, and there'll be a mad rush on sunscreen. The boogie boards will be dusted off and the buckets and shovels retrieved from the… Continue

Today, at the Annual Sun Herald City 2 Surf race, 75,000 runners slogged (and some are still at it as I write this)along the roads of Sydney today, from Hyde Park in Sydney's CBD 14 Kilometres to the finish at Bondi Beach.

The winner of the mens' race was Michael Shelley (runner up last year) , a 25 year old from the Gold Coast in Queensland, ran the race in… Continue

Well know Aussie band "Men at Work", famous for their 80's hit 'Down Under', that we all danced to way back then, are in danger of losing royalties from the well know hit. They are being sued for copywrite infringement and have been accused of stealing the famous flute riff from a well know Australian childrens song 'Kookaburra Sits in The Old Gum Tree', which was written over 75 years ago for a Girl Guides competition.A copywrite hearing is to be held in the Federal Court.

Doggie Day Out

I had a happy but tired pooch this morning, after spending a couple of hours at a dog friendly beach at Rowland Reserve, Bayview on Sydneys Northern Beaches. It's one of the few beaches where your wo(man)s best friend can run free, kick up some sand and have a ball!



Its a wonderfully scenic setting, with the fantastic Flying Fox Playground nearby to keep the kids amused while you sit down in the Flying Fox Cafe for a well earned coffee or a bite to eat and a bowl of water for your… Continue

Paid Maternity Leave for Oz

Good news for mums and dads! The Government have just announced paid maternity leave, which will encourage more women into the workforce.



Any primary carer (mother or father) will be entitled to 18 weeks pay at the minimum wage (about $544 per week) in a welcomed scheme due to commence on 1st January 2011, after the next election.



The mother and father can split the leave, if they wish, taking, say, 9 weeks each. The payment will be means tested and available to those… Continue
