Westbourne Lane, Petersham:
"Dad, our usual parking place for the boat is taken."
"Well, find another place for it, why don't you."

Pitt Town


Is there any other street name in Sydney which combines two suburb names like this one in Pitt Town?

Potts Point


Negotiate this entrance to a garage at the Hughes Place rear of Wayside Chapel, Potts Point, and you’ll never complain about your driveway again.

Queens Park


This is where Bourke Lane intersects with Bourke Lane. Yes, Bourke Lane (east to west) intersects with another Bourke Lane going north to south. If that’s not enough for you, there’s yet another, third, Bourke Lane, parallel to and just 70 metres from the north-south Bourke Lane. Still not satisfied? Then Bourke Street is only another 70 metres away. Who would be a postie in Queens Park?
