    Book research - anyone live in Sydney, Australia?

    Discussion in 'The Lounge' started by jlauren, Nov 21, 2009.

    OK, I have a bizarre question:

    Does anyone in this forum live in Sydney, Australia? I'm writing a book set there and I live in North Queensland, Australia and have been to Sydney several times, but I don't know it like a local. It's the perfect setting for my book, but I would LOVE to talk to someone who actually lives there and knows the ins and outs of the city. I'm looking for details of train lines, suburbs, businesses etc, which is more information than I've gathered in my short holidays there.

    My next step is to take another trip there solely for research, but that's still a fair way off. Thanks so much....you are all fantastic!

    I actually live in Sydney haha, what are the odds. I could help you out with any questions you have, not sure how in-depth I could go with certain things but I could do my best with anything you need to know.

    Cheers
