It should be noted that your mates in Jervis Bay are living
in a National Park and should really be lumped with Thredbo
and Perisher and the South Coast of NSW.

NSW has a metropolitan strategey.

With regard to Canberra, it has real issues which do need to
be addressed. Providing fiber  to everyone, for example is
going to be very expensive.
