Summary

I'm especially interested in gardens so there's lots to see in the streets around me.

Description

Most of the houses in my area were built by the housing commission in the 1950s. They were made from prefabricated concrete slabs to a few standard designs.

What I like about walking down my street is seeing how each house has been given a distinct personality by the people who live in it.

Points of Interest

1. Topiary heaven

The owner is often in his garden trimming his topiaries. There is a statue of the Virgin Mary, illuminated at night by hundreds of coloured flashing lights.

2. CH Sullivan Memorial Park

Darebin Creek has large areas of native grassland with occasional visits from Kangaroos! I haven't seen them yet but it's good to know they're there.

3. Vacant shops

What I don't like in our area is the abandoned shopping strip. Probably unable to compete with nearby Northland, all the shops have closed except for the lonely milk bar.

4. Japanese style garden

This garden is in the Japanese style with bamboo, bonzais, lotus and a Buddha statue.

5. Edible nature strip

An edible nature strip with rhubarb, rosemary, sage, lavendar. The front yard of this house is also filled with vegetables and fruit trees.
