Federation homes, picturesque streets and large Italian, Greek, Korean and Chinese communities

Here you will find everyday people getting on with things in a pleasant, clean, unpretentious and relaxed environment. New apartment blocks have sprung up around the shopping area, mixing in with large Federation homes. (More information below and to your left <<<)
