Top 10 – Difference between Sydney and Launceston

Hi all,

Just a quick top 10 of things I have noticed so far. Some obvious …. some not so …

10 – Every one calls everyone else “Cobber”

9 – Nearly all pubs close at 9:30 pm … or there abouts

8 – Ads are typically for lifts for the elderly and retirement homes

7 – Dinner … It’s called dinner …. not Tea …  tea comes in a bag dipped in hot water!!

6 – Maccas is only available in town ….

5 – Our pizza delivery driver is white. Has literally never ever happened in my life!

4 – 4 cars at a set of lights is considered heavy traffic, but “round the corner” could be 10 kms away

3 – Reception …. is absolutely rubbish

2 – Footy is not footy …. I miss talking about real footy … not this afl palava  #PANTHERPRIDE!!

1 –  Everyone knows everyone !!!!

Thats it for the moment … but im sure there will be more to add.

  1. It all sounds great mate except for the footy and the pubs closing early. “2018, year of the Warriors perhaps..”


  2. I think you need to introduce some South Africanisms to add to the laid back life. ‘Now’ means ‘maybe later, but definitely not immediately’. ‘Just now’ means ‘later — possibly even today’. ‘Now now’ has a much greater sense of urgency and indicates ‘as soon as I can get to it — probably today’.
