Avocado Baby?

Help me track down this weird Australian folk band! They were called Avocado Baby, and had a really great song about aliens. Their record came out in the early 90s I think. Any idea where to find mp3s or vinyl would be much appreciated!

Sydney or Melbourne as a "Walking City"?

Sydney vs Melbourne as a pedestrian paradise: I am a sociologist doing a study which involves observing pedestrians/window shoppers/etc. I am based in New York City, which is fantastic for my field of work. In Feb/March, I plan to go to Australia for two months, to either Sydney or Melbourne. I have never been to Australia before. QUESTION: Which city has more of a "pedestrian culture"? That is, which is more of a "walking city?" (If you know New York City, my favorite place to observe is Union Square -- I am looking for a comparable location.) Would prefer a place filled with locals, not tourists. Thanks!

Moving overseas permanently, need moral support!

Help me make my garden tastier

I've never had a garden before. I recently bought a house in Canberra with a small established garden, mainly native Australian plants. It has a drip watering system. There isn't a lot of room, but there are a few things I have always wanted to grow, and I've got no idea whether it is possible to fit them in somehow, or where I should put them. I know I can't do anything until just before spring, but I want to start planning now. [more inside]

Aussie bank urine test

I know that American employers conduct urine drug tests all the time, but what about Australian employers? I was recently offered a bank job in Sydney, and will have to undergo a "medical examination" before starting. The information sheet says nothing about drugs, but does mention a urine test. Will they test for cannabis, and if so, should a month (after pretty much semi-daily use) be long enough to be in the clear?

The hole truth

I remember seeing a picture (I think in National Geographic) of a gigantic hole -- in Australia, I am virtually certain. It was naturally occurring, not a mine, and very deep and mysterious. Now there is only a giant pit in my memory, and fear of a growing sinkhole called dementia -- can't find it anywhere. Am I just imagining this hole?
