Hunters Hill

Is D'Aram Street, Hunters Hill, the only Sydney street name beginning with D'?
Yes, the only street name. But there's also an avenue, place and way elsewhere.


Hunters Hill

Hunters Hill has an unusual lane name.


Hurstville Grove

Like a giant slippery-dip or lava from a recent volcanic eruption, King Georges Road flows through the south-western suburbs. This major traffic artery disturbs the otherwise docile Hurstville Grove. You can only see it like this if you’re walking before 6am on a Sunday. 


Kensington

I assist the police whenever possible. At the bottom of Ingram Street, Kensington, you can book every driver for two offences, constable: not observe "no entry" sign and drive contrary to "one way" sign. There's no other way to get into this dead-end section.


Kensington

Furthermore, constable, parallel Baker Street is an ideal place to order motorists to pull over.


Kensington

Is there any other example of this footpath pattern in Sydney? Yes, there are hundreds of them - see them every four metres on both sides of Anzac Parade through the Kensington shopping centre.


Kirkham

A settlement off Macquarie Grove Road, Kirkham, has six lanes. They're all called 'The Lanes'.
And paradoxically, the signs have different lettering styles.

Lilyfield

Padstow Street, Lilyfield, is no through traffic, but pedestrians can climb through to the next street by using the gap in the fence.


Llandilo

There is only one Sydney suburb that has a name starting with double L.
