Hello Sunbury ;-)
I am new to Sunbury and have been trying to get broadband internet connected. All I keep hearing is 'there are no ports available at the exchange'. I am sure I am not the only one having this problem. It seems the only alternative is to use mobile broadband, an option that is far too expensive in my opinion.
So I am wondering what is wrong with providers that we can live within half an hour of Melbourne and not be able to access ADSL2+ - or even ADSL1 for that ...

Hi all,

We need as many signatures as possible for a petition that will be lodged in the state parliament by the shadow minister for planning about this ridiculous possible expansion of the most recent UGB boundary around Sunbury. In short Hume council submissions clearly show all the land down to and beyond Diggers Rest is to be joined up with Taylors lakes. Visit growth areas web page to view all detail.

If you want a petion to sign let me know. ...

It has been two days since the mauling of the 4 year old girl by a dog in St Albans, but I just can't get over it. How on earth, in this country, in 2011, can a 4 year old girl be mauled TO DEATH by a dog while sitting on her mothers lap in the safety of her loungeroom watching TV. It is just beyond belief!!!!!

Some ingrate $%^&* needed his ego supplemented with an aggressive dog, and this is what has happened. If my unsafe driving resulted in the death of a person I would be on ...

Hi all,

My wife and I are considering to move to Sunbury and I am wondering you would be able to help us with some information.
Which are is peaceful and quiet in Sunbury, as my wife is expecting and we are planning to find a place that is good to raise children.
I was saw news and statistics the other day that indicated that violence and possibly drugs may be a problem in Sunbury. Is that true?

Thanks heaps for advice ...

Are there too many Fast Food chains in Sunbury?

I go to the more affluent (higher education. incomes) areas of melbourne (hawthorn, brighton etc) for work a fair bit, and these Fast Food chains are almost non existent there. But in Sunbury there are 4 on every street corner... Is this a reflection of our community? Is it a 'class' thing'? I can't help but wonder. ...

A reality TV show is on SBS Tomorrow night where a group of Australians do a reverse journey. Given that "Boat People" continually take up such a big part of our political debate, this is a much watch for everyone.

Compassion and human empathy has been void from public debate on this topic for a long time. Hopefully this series might bring it back.

It is on at 8.30 Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday night. I'm really keen to hear what people in Sunbury think of this issue. ...

Our property backs onto the Sunbury Tip and have noticed over the past month or so toxic stench coming from the tip. We are also experiencing frequent headaches and are concerned toxic waste is now being dumped at the Sunbury Tip. We have never experienced any stench from the tip ever. Has anyone else noticed this stench and experiencing any symptons? Concerned over toxic waste dumping! ...

I thought I heard recently that the Grand Prix in Melbourne a couple of weeks back cost Vic Tax payers 2 billion dollars.. Is this right?? If not, does anyone know how much it did cost us.
