Wilcannia, NSW Historic port on the Darling River It is impossible to write about Wilcannia without discussing what white visitors describe as “the Aboriginal problem”. There has long been a perception, fuelled by newspaper reports and images of groups of local Aborigines standing around outside the pubs in the main street, that the town is a hotbed of violence, dysfunctional behaviour and “problems”. It is not uncommon to hear, in White Cliffs, Cobar or Broken Hill, people declaring that they drove through Wilcannia and did not stop because it looked so dangerous. And it is very common to hear locals advising visitors not to stop in Wilcannia because it is a dangerous town. This assessment is simply not true. Historically there was a major problem because very ignorant government officials used Wilcannia as a dumping ground for Aborigines from surrounding areas with no thought or knowledge that they belonged to different language groups and were not necessarily going to all live happily ever afterwards. It was not dissimilar to creating a camp in the Balkans and putting a mix of Croats, Serbs, Macedonians and Greeks together because they all look white and surely they will all get along with each other. The potent mix of the local Barkindji with Wangkumara, Danggali, Barindji and Malyangapa people from surrounding areas was deeply divisive and racially insensitive. Sadly very few travellers get out of their cars, have a look around this genuinely fascinating historic port town and talk to the local Aborigines, who are, almost without exception, very friendly and only too happy to chat about this interesting township on the banks of the Darling River. After all, many of them are Barkindji people who have been living in this region for 40 years.

Share via Email Long before I married my American wife, who is, of course, the most beautiful, clever and supremely fascinating woman north or south of the Mason-Dixon line, I suppose I must have dated to use a term of art one or two Americans. If there is one thing that separates UK from US romance, apart from the obvious expense of crossing the Atlantic to have dinner, it’s the complex business of ‘dating‘.
This is a subject with more rules than the MCC handbook, and as many snares as Shane Warne on a turning wicket. By the time my future wife and I had reached the tipping-point of actually getting engaged American women are surprisingly traditional and socially conservative in the wedding department , I knew all about the ‘date with benefits’, the ‘booty call’, and could have written a short bestseller on the ‘non-date date’. My wife was fairly expert in British mating rituals, too.
As a single woman, she’d had her share of the nightmare known to her girlfriends as the ‘English date’, and was not nostalgic to repeat the experience. To her, the Englishman’s idea of foreplay seemed to involve sneaking up on you when your back was turned and rugby-tackling you into bed. If women are from Venus, she likes to say, British men are from the primordial swamp. I – or perhaps I should say ‘we’ – had also discovered that there are at least three – and potentially 3, – essential differences between the thirtysomething English woman and her New World cousin.
This, by the way, is a subject I have discussed almost every day of my married life with the beautiful, clever and fascinating Sarah Lyall, so you can take it as axiomatic that this wisdom has been thoroughly researched. An essential element of that research is the joint study of the contemporary American soap operas, small masterpieces of popular theatre: The ups and downs of Wisteria Lane may seem light years from reality, but the adulterous scheming of Gabrielle and her gardening hulk John or the school-kid hell of Lynette Scavo’s family open a window on to the enthralling mystery of everyday life in the United States.
Call them what you like, but these addictive dramas are, to me, documentaries that underline the ocean-wide gulf between my American wife and almost all my English women friends. First, never underestimate the American woman’s belief in her fundamental right to be happy.

Karuah, NSW Quiet town at the north end of Port Stephens In Karuah, which had historically been a town on the Pacific Highway, was bypassed and, as a result, it became a quiet and relaxing holiday destination and the gateway to the northern arm of Port Stephens. Today it is primarily a holiday resort beside the Karuah River offering a boat ramp and picnic spot. It is ideal for swimming in a tidal pool, fishing and boating.
The surrounding area is known for its excellent oysters which can be purchased directly from the town’s oyster farms. It is 15 m above sea-level and 53 km north of Newcastle. Both these names were changed to Karuah, believed to be a Worimi Aboriginal word meaning “native plum tree”.

Australian Inventions Thinking different In , the US military announced to the world that it had developed the Lockheed F Nighthawk stealth fighter, which it believed could not be detected by radar. Seeing a challenge, Australian scientists at the CSIRO speculated that if the plane could not be detected, perhaps the turbulence it made passing through air could be. The invention of the Jindalee Radar System continued a long line of Australian inventiveness. Some of the inventions, such as the notepad and power board, were so simple they beged the question as to why they had never been invented before.
Perhaps their invention could be attributed to the liberation from traditional thinking that comes from living in a multicultural society. Whereas other cultures will continue with practices because it is the way things have always been done, in Australia, things are done in a diversity of ways, which makes Australians more inclined to conceive of the best way of doing things rather than just holding onto the past.

Parisa is disappointed that Dunbar has a girlfriend. Trisha rooms with KellyAnne, and Shauvon rooms with Parisa, and thus friendships form. After Parisa greets KellyAnne and Trisha, she goes off to explore the house, and KellyAnne and Trisha, who have already done this, see this as standoffish. The men agree that KellyAnne is the most attractive of the women, though Dunbar thinks Parisa is the deepest and least shallow. The housemates go to a nightclub, where Isaac and Shauvon flirt, and KellyAnne gets drunk.
At the house, KellyAnne flirts with Dunbar in the hot tub, which tests Dunbar’s loyalty to his girlfriend. Parisa and Shauvon are appalled by KellyAnne’s behavior, even though the men in the house agree that Parisa is jealous. Trisha and Parisa argue over a mess in the kitchen.
