Explain This: The Australian Synchrotron

Been living in Surrey hills years ago good area

Went round Surrey Hills after a day at SCG couple of months ago,really good for a few beers😁. Had a hipster vibe about it😁

I just need to figure out a way to get myself to the country.

And many working class people and people on benefits. Which is brilliant! Don’t erase them 🤯

I will be coming to Sydney in two weeks time & I might "pop" in,I love the book shop as we have quite a few near where I live & I read lots of books,hope to see you all.x.

The cultural hub of Sydney .

I love it!

Annie Seymour... over there end of July/August... can't wait xx

The best place to live!! We have been in Surry Hills for 23 years now! Absolutely love it❤️

My grandson went to Sydney a couple of years ago. Working there now! ♥️

A lot of them are also closing down or struggling to make ends meet with the light (lemon) rail
