Sydney defined

This is an absolute hoot if you live in Sydney or have good knowledge of Sydney. I must make one for Melbourne.

  1. Love it - not sure what all the places are - but I love it
    Look forward to your interpretation of Melbourne (and suburbs) ~ Cathy

    1. Cathy, I think Melbourne would be a bit harder but I'd like to give it a shot one day.

    2. Says the lady who may be marked as apple orchards. Could be worse.

  2. That's very clever. I can picture an Adelaide one as it would have been years ago, over to the west is mostly Greek, over to the east is mostly Italian everywhere else is Asian with a sprinkling of white people. Now there's Indians and Africans in the mix as well as other countries.

    1. River, arty types up in hills. Let's call them mung bean munchers. Extend it further to the Barossa, South Germany.

  3. My beloved grew up in the Eastern Suburbs and your map is spot on! My in-laws didn't even visit the parts called "Bogan" or "Someone has to live here" ha ha 😊

    1. Hels/Jo, it is a bit like our western suburbs. At times we drive through them but stick to the main roads.

  4. I have a friend from Australia that I'm going to send these to. I love the way you came up with this! Hugs...RO

    1. RO, I wish it was my work. I don't know who created it.

    1. Sandra, full of stereotyping but within stereotypes there is some truth.

  6. Clever, and a strong truthful element too.

    1. EC, how about your area? I can see an area that is marked 'rulers'. Yarralumla, 'queenie's hench person'.

  7. Well, three-quarters of Sydney agree that 'the shire' is populated with bogans.

    1. Victor, and the other quarter live there?

  8. I thought the Shire was full of in-breds and western/south western Sydney was bogan land

    1. Allan, I am not really that sure. I remember a rather awful tv show about The Shire. And where di the Danihers live?

  9. Of course the eastern suburbs view is absolutely correct.

    1. But from which viewpoint James? Is Victor on the cusp of being in Satan land or socialism, according to The Shire.

      Delete
    2. I think both Victor and I are in Satanland, and Socialism doesn't really kick in, these days, until you get to Chippendale.

    3. In with leftie, latte sipping hipsters.

    4. I always wondered if Bolt was your surname!

      Delete
    5. Sadly or not, I am one of those inner suburban latte sippers. Who's Bolt? ;)

  10. Satanland; I love it!
