"The new Acland Street"

I was amazed over the past few years when I visited Melbourne and saw that Carlisle Street had turned into an fantascic entertainment location.

I remember Carlsile Street as the place to get bagles and to avoid at all costs when driving. Graham Keneddy summed it up for me with the joke "You know they used to ring a beel through the streets of Balaclava at 9pm to tell people to lock up their doors...they had to stop because they were waking everyone up." Boom, boom!

Well things have changed and I am very much looking forward to living within walking distance of this wonderful strip!
