Yes to above. I'm afraid the promotion of crass individualism and greed has acquired such a result. I'm not entirely convinced is this Sydney siders,( or more national characteristics,) are extrovert. Rather easily embarrassed when away from comfort zone. But tend to be very status orientated, shallow, indifferent and somewhat rough edged.

Most friendliest = rural country towns (especially west of the Great Dividing Range)

Least friendliest = urban elitist major cities (especially Sydney & Melbourne)

Strewth.

I would have to disagree there, that is a bit of an urban myth.

Most tolerant = urban 'elitist' (?) inner and middle positioned suburbs.


Least tolerant = Bogan outer suburbs and with some notable exceptions, smaller rural town s, where acceptance can indeed be hard won, but if not exactly 'unfriendly', then too often' self absorbed', rather closed with a 'fit in or fcku off' type attitude if bother at all.


IMO, not sure an area fits with any clarity at all into a friendly stereo type locality. More down to individuals met and their openness towards outsiders. The cliquey general behaviour all too common, probably makes it hard in general. Of course it depends if we are talking politeness or friendliness, and what exactly our interpretations are of the latter.

Australia for some reason, seems to remain a nation still in awe of long passed urban myths.

Most friendliest place I have been in Australia was the wealthy suburb of Mosman in Sydney. Lived there for a few months and the people were amazing. It was like a community. My neighbors helped when I needed and although it’s true that some people can be entitled (like one lady who parked her Mercedes on a bus stop) my experiences were the best I have had so far in Oz and I have lived/been in so many places throughout the country.

Least friendliest place? I have to say that places with a lot of bogans aren’t my cup of tea. For instance Perth and The Gold Coast or Maroubra/Cronulla in Sydney. I have been briefly in very small towns because I am not a countryside boy.
