  1. A small town in north west Queensland is selling affordable 800 sqm blocks for $10 a piece. With 10 blocks up for grabs in Richmond, available land will be designated through a ballot. The North Queensland Register reports In 2013, Richmond Shire Council applied to access crown land from the state government, in a hope to attract new residents to the town. Richmond Shire Council Mayor, John Wharton. Photo: Supplied “Richmond is situated on the mighty Flinders River, where there is water and good soil. Farmers are on their way and we are continually receiving interest in property around the area,” Mayor John Wharton said. “The ballot opens up another area of town, it allows people to move to Richmond at a minimum cost and opens the market for potential young home owners. “The average block in Richmond is about 2000 sqm, so the blocks are a little small for land in this country, but we will probably combine two blocks together. “Council will provide power and water to the blocks, including sealed road access.” Although it only cost $10 to apply in the ballot, there is still certain criteria that needs to be met to enter. The ballot entrant must be an Australian citizen, be an individual (no corporate), have pre-approved finance of $200,000 and build a two bedroom home within two years. This is not the first time Richmond Shire Council has conducted a ballot, selling dollar blocks in 2013. “Previously we had 3000 people apply and 32 went into the ballot as some didn’t meet the criteria,” Cr Wharton said. “Last time we opened 10 blocks. There are now four houses, sheds and a bus on those blocks, in which those owners are paying rates.” Natural Resources and Mines Minister, Dr Anthony Lynham said the land transfer was the first step in an innovative strategy to encourage more new residents. “Following a decline in real estate activity in recent years, Richmond Shire Council saw an opportunity to use the land in a $10 ballot to combat their declining population,” Dr Lynham said. “The most appropriate use of these state-owned land parcels is residential, so this is a practical way of helping to support one of our regional communities.” The blocks of land are located on Middleton Street, Richmond and interested persons can apply through Richmond Shire Council. Entries will close around July with the ballot being announced in the new year.
  2. Can anyone recommend a good dentist in Melbourne CBD, Richmond, South Yarra or Prahran area? Not that keen on full-on, hard-sell cosmetic treatment dentists - I'm looking for very good, painfree dentistry, pleasant dentist, reasonably priced, trustworthy. Cheers.:elvis:

  4. Has anyone had to get their dog from somewhere along way from heathrow? I live in Richmond nyorks and I am figuring out the best option to get my dogs to heathrow from here. The company i am going with to fly them to aus said they could collect them and have them board in their kennels for 1 night at a cost of £564. This is a lot more than I expected! Or I could drive with them myself, this would be petrol money and probably an over night stay but might be a cheaper option but might be worse for them if they pick up on me been upset! Or is there such thing as a company who would drive dogs from a to b ...like a pet currier????
  5. Hello everyone, I moved to Melbourne from London 3 years ago with my husband. We live in Hawthorn and have a one year old daughter, who was born here. We originally came out for 2 years as a bit of an adventure but it keeps getting extended (and everyone back home tells us that now is not a good time to return)! Looks like we'll be here for another couple of years. I'd love to meet some new people. I'm at work 3 days a week and at home the rest of the time. So I am happy to meet up with small children during the day (Hawthorn/Richmond/Abbotsford or CBD would suit me), or maybe drinks after work in the CBD. Or - perhaps this sounds a bit ambitious but does anyone fancy the idea of a Melbourne CBD bookgroup? I used to be part of one in London with friends and it was fun. Really just an excuse to meet up every few weeks and have a glass of wine or two and a chat. Anyway I look forward to hearing from you. Fran
