My suburb


My suburb

I live in Haberfield, Sydney. Haberfield is an important suburb because it was the first "garden suburb" in Australia. It was built at the beginning of the 20th century, at the same time as Australia became a federation of states, that's why it is known as 'The Federation Suburb'.

All the houses in Haberfield have a garden at the back and a smaller one at the front. They also have a drive way on one side and a one metre passage on the other. They usually have two verandahs, one at the front and one at the back. This makes the suburb look green and spacious.

Haberfield is very close to the city, so it is very easy to go to the movies, theatre, museums, restaurants and shops there. On the other hand, Haberfield is full of specialty shops and restaurants, so you can stay in the suburb without having to travel anywhere.
