This weeks local mum is Viva Hammer who tells us about here family and professional life. I’m a fifth generation Aussie on my mother’s side, and my father is an immigrant, so I can speak local and foreign. My parents lived in Orana Court when I was born, right opposite the golf course on Old South Head Road, although at that time they wouldn’t let people like us join.

Monday’s Local Mum, Barbara Gruber

Where and how long have you lived in Sydney’s east? I moved from Berlin to Paddington in January 2019. The plan was to live here for two years, but then COVID hit and turned the world upside down — so we’re still here!

Where and how long have you lived in Sydney’s east?

Three words that describe what it’s like to live in the eastern suburbs? Caring, energising, fun.   I moved to the East…
