The next 6 weeks might not be if Darebin is more than 5kms away! If it isn't then they will probably be even more predictable - how many courses have you got there?

Darebin safely within 5k of Blair's house.
Aug 2, 2020 9:48 AM # 
It isn't - it's well within range (and Eaglemont Flats is too).

I just had a look and Blair's suburb challenge puts Darebin well within that range. Except he's only got an hour to get there, run a course and get back home again.

Yeah well, running there's not much more than 10 min even at my slow pace, and apparently the map area's pretty small.
(By 6 weeks' time Blair won't need a map 'cos he'll just be able to do it on map memory...)

Jayne's place would have been in an interesting position had the restrictions been by postcode (as was rumoured) - she's at the end of a street which is in Fairfield (with no road access to the rest of Fairfield) with the rest of the street being in Northcote.

Compassionate grounds? Just say she needs a compassionate wedding (apparently that's one of the reasons you're allowed to get married).

I think we could probably argue for being in either postcode, it seems a little unclear. The house is in tte backyard of a Fairfield house, in a Northcote street.

Postcode here in Bendigo however would cover a huge distance, though not most of the useful shops, and 5k radius includes at least 4 o maps.

Big Jon:
One house I lived in for a fair while had 2 postcodes - the front garden opened onto one road and had one postcode but the vehicle access, to the back of the house was from a different road that had a different postcode. Beat that for idiocy!

Though British postcodes cover a much smaller area than Australian ones (Australian ones in major cities typically cover two or three suburbs).
Aug 2, 2020 8:43 PM # 
Yep, my postcode covers the 15 apartments in the building, the ground floor restaurant, and the bottle shop next door.

All you need is the house number and the postcard and theoretically your letter will be delivered.

The first bit of English postcodes is pretty much the same as Australian ones. London ones came into usage during one of tte wars i think and are by direction N, S etc. then alphabetical.

So if I address a postcard to 9 it will make it to my house? Now I know why Aust Post keeps putting its prices up!
Aug 3, 2020 1:17 AM # 
Given it's a UK house number and postcode unlikely to make it to WA

But you never know!

I just received a letter from the UK posted 4 months ago which somehow was routed via Estonia
