    Do you have health clinics in your town?

    I know where I live we have rural and remote primary health care centres in all of our rural and remote towns/communities that have the nurses/midwives there 24 hours for emergencies and then run the clinics for child health, womens health, antenatal etc and they also have RFDS and the specialists from the major regional hospital fly in-fly out on a rotation for specialist appointments.

    I live in a big regional town, so I think it is the best of both worlds? Medicare local doctor on the weekend (although libs have axed that), all the major dept stores except Davide Jones, Myer and Kmart.

    Not many specialist though so we have to go to the nearest city for that type of thing (300km) away.

    Lots of cafes, homeshop, no traffic, never an issue getting a park, lots of things to do.

    I'm thinking of Yass Target country - I got the best deals on some kids clothes last time I was there. Kids Denim hoody jacket reduced from $30 to $3. and disney flannel PJs for $2 each. I almost fainted I was so excited!

    Whenever I drive into the next town I ALWAYS go to their target ... My kids get seriously reduced clothing at end of season sales.

    Would never find that stuff that cheap in my local TC. I think where I live is slightly bigger than Yass though...

    Regional tv isn't bad now but what I really love is hearing adds for Lamb worming equipment while having dinner. Lovely.

    We have a very small IGA. We have a chemist, post office and news agent all rolled into one. Population of about 1000 but its a FIFO town so lots of people passing through.

    Never lock the house or the car. If you lose your phone or wallet it's always returned to you.

    I see people from Perth complaining about the 39 degree heat and I'm like yeah it's been 47 degrees here for a week, so what?

    I spent a couple of years in a remote regional town. No doctors, a nurse came in one morning a week. Population 192 at the time. One supermarkets with outrageous prices and out of date food, one petrol station with one pump and outrageous prices. 45 mins windy scary drive to the nearest hospital in a town of 3000 and way too many snakes for my liking. Haha. But it is beautiful place and the views were spectacular.

    Oh - and the country club of course, with a Chinese restaurant in it

    Yeah, it was there last time I was there but it was over a year ago, could have closed down perhaps?
