It’s Australia All Round!

From the desk of Leah Calnan, Director of Metro Property Management...
Well as most of you will be aware (we hope) it’s Australia Day tomorrow and we hope that you all have something fantastic planned with your friends and family. On Australia Day every year we come together as a country and celebrate our diverse society, landscape, our remarkable achievements and look ahead to the future as to how we can improve this great country of ours in the future.

Many events are happening around the nation tomorrow (on you will find the Victorian events) and you will find in true Australian spirit many of them raising funds for the Queensland Flood Victims in many inventive ways! The website tells us that there will be a national campaign for ‘floodraising’ via the ‘Australia Celebrates’ television program broadcast nationally on ABC 1 at 8.30pm on the 25th of January, dig deep for your fellow Aussies now won’t you. (Remember you can also donate directly at the Premier's Flood Appeal via

In other news about Melbourne, the television, news and general vibe of Melbourne has been all about the ‘Australian Open’. As I heard one commentator state this morning that it’s not very ‘Australian’ at the moment, seeing as there are no longer any Australians left in the competition. However, there is still some exciting tennis to see yet, as tomorrow sees Kim Clijsters take on Agnieska Radwanska for a place in the semifinals. In fact in an article dated 25th January 2011 on the Australian Open official website by Alix Ramsay ( states that…

She may be many people's favourite to win the title and, in the absence of any Australian players, she may be the darling of the Australian crowd - everyone loves “Aussie Kim” - but as Kim Clijsters was keen to point out after reaching her sixth quarterfinal at the Open, she is not Superwoman.

"I'm not Superwoman," she said, smiling from ear to ear. "Look, I probably have the fullest box of anyone. I have a nanny
(Clijsters takes her 2yr old Jada with her wherever she travels) , a great team around me. We are all a great bunch of friends and we take it as a great adventure, ever since I came back. I hope I can make it continue for a while longer."
Well we think she is a Superwoman anyhow, good luck Kim.

And whatever you all get up to tomorrow we at Metro hope you enjoy your Australia Day.

Until next time…
