"A good place to live but we do get some whiners."

Byng Road Birkdale used to be a little farming street in the bayside area of Brisbane. Over the years developers have moved in and changed the landscape quite a bit. There were only a few families and now there are thousands of people coming and going through the road from little side streets. All good! The only trouble we ever really have are the people who move here and try to change the residents. I suppose it happens in most streets but we are quite diverse. There are still a couple of farms and they have livestock, in the form of horses or chickens or cattle. The newcomers complain about this but the general question that begs an answer is "didn't you notice that?", "why did you move here if you don't like the scenery and the horses passing your home?"
Other than that is is wonderful We have big shopping centres nearby and Moreton Bay just a short walk away. The climate is great and we still have a few koaloas in the trees. The wallabies have long gone.
Do drive by one day and see our little street. Please drive carefully - very few people notice the speed signs and like most places feel they own the road.
