  • GREAT PLACE TO CHECK OUT WHEN IN A CITY LIKE THIS , DIFFERENT ! all depends on the weather and time of year . wear good footwear ! 
  • The quarter is really classy it is worthwhile to run through here. Really worth seeing is especially the George Street. We were in the Botanical Garden and then from the East exit to the Newtown high ran a sensational walk.
