Food Scene
Local dining establishments we've tried ourselves, and recommend.
Great Vietnamese and other SE Asian cuisine at a fantastic price, served fast, in great surroundings. Great sake selection, too! (Yes, I know sake's not Vietnamese but Japanese.)

It has fabulous coffee and cake, but even more importantly, it's a great atmosphere. From the outside, it doesn't look like much - but step inside - you won't regret it. Definitely the best place in the area.

Not a gourmet meal, but a mind-bogglingly large variety of great quality cheap eats that'll satisfy your hunger at a very reasonable price. Perfect if you have kids, or fussy eaters, or a group with a wide variety of tastes.

Delicious Japanese food at an unbeatable price, though I think the ramen is not their best dish. We get karage chicken, pork gyoza, edamame, two bowls of rice, and two cans of capsis - a filling hearty meal for two for under $35. It's popular and frequently busy, so if you want quiet, it pays to go early (ie before 6:30pm).

This is a restaurant incubator, a place where, each night, around six aspiring restaurateurs operate pop-ups to test their concept. Which restaurateurs are there varies from night to night, so there's always something new and different to try. Preview what's on the night that you want to go by googling Wandering Cooks. The restaurants share indoor and outdoor dining space. The indoor space is kind of 'industrial chic' - being in an old warehouse - and the outdoor space is surrounded by greenery and string lights. Both very atmospheric!

Lots of different seating options - quiet corners, large tables, high and low, loud and secluded, inexpensive, great decor, friendly, pub triv, pool tables, lots of beers and ciders on top, totally down-to-earth, affordable but high quality pub cuisine, totally reflects the neighbourhood.

Entertainment & Activities
What an amazing free amenity our city has provided us with! An artificial beach and lagoon in the middle of our city! In summer, you can even catch free movies while lying on the beach drinking a beer. This is a must-see, year-round, even if it's too cold to swim in it, have a walk around and marvel at how pretty it is.

Parks & Nature
It's artificially landscaped, but it's immaculately kept, and it's lovely. From densely planted rainforest sections, to open grass, to the lagoon, to the kitchen garden, there are a variety of sections and it's a pleasure to spend an hour or two walking along the river and enjoying the gardens. There are also a variety of entertainment, dining, and shopping options in the area.

Really beautiful city parklands, with lots of free picnic spots and gas barbecues. Walking trails, playgrounds - heaps of fun equipment for kids, and lots of quiet spots to lie on the grass with a book and laze away a sunny afternoon. Also places to splash about in the water in the summer. Beautiful spot.

This is a little closer than Coles, but is smaller, though definitely more than a convenience store. It's open longer hours than Coles, too, so we use this quite a lot, too. Open until 10pm 7 days a week.
