Getting to Balmain

Our public transport system isn’t perfect, but today’s ferry, bus (and Uber) networks are a vast improvement from the historical days of Balmain.

Miss Pauline’s Garden

Balmain Public School has unveiled ‘Miss Pauline’s Garden’, a beautifully designed garden to support the integration of sustainability and environmental education into the school’s curriculum.

Twenty years strong

In the 20 years Contessa has been the brunch hot spot of Balmain, more than 40 food outlets have opened and closed in the area. Darling sat down with owner Marco to uncover their secret to success.

For Our Elders

NAIDOC week is held across Australia in the first week of July each year to celebrate and recognise the history, culture and achievements of First Nations peoples. To celebrate and honour the 2023 theme, ‘For Our Elders’, Darling’s guest writer Marc Bennie had the pleasure of interviewing living legend Aunty Glendra Stubbs.

The power of colour

Colours have the power to transform spaces and evoke emotions. Have you ever asked yourself why you feel energised when you step into a bright yellow room and relaxed when you’re in a soft green space. Darling sat down with Kym Shields from FINEPRINTCO to learn more about colour psychology.

Together we run

The new mural on the corner of Darling Street and Victoria Road, captures local hero Arran Keith in a special moment with his supporters, doing one of his favourite activities – running. Darling spoke to Arran and his family about how having a disability has not prevented him from achieving anything. One of Arran’s first words was “I do it” and living in this great community of Rozelle, Arran is definitely doing it!
