Ya coulda bought this place for 5 shillings!!

Seriously! 550 acres of diamond studded real estate belonging to a colonial surgeon called William Balmain was exchanged in 1880 for 5 shillings to settle a debt! - Today, your 5 shillings could get you a half share in a Balmain cookie if you’re lucky!! Great spot - Balmain! - Shopping, shopping and more eclectic shopping! - Food! Glorious eclectic food! AND - Atmosphere, lots and lots of eclectic atmosphere! Heck! Is there any wonder that the main street is called “Darling”?!
