So conflicted! I love love love Thornbury and want to sing its praises, yet as a local I kinda wanna keep it on the DL so that it doesn't get overrun by day-trippers and gentrifiers. I recently did a neighbourhood round up for this year's Age Good Food Guide (which is due for release September 13). Here's a little snippet..
"Remember when Thornbury was the fringe and a suburb you could afford? Well, congratulations early adopters. Gentrification got here faster than anyone expected. Thornbury's recent revival has helped transform the once-drab High Street into one of the city's longest – and most buzzy – culinary thoroughfares. From specialty butchers and organic grocers, to aperitivo bars and craft brewers, it's the place to be".
