Whether you follow Aussie Rules or Rugby League could have a big affect on which property appeals most to you.
After all, one Home is located in affluent Brighton, a greater Melbourne Coastal Suburb, famous for its colourful Bathing Boxes which have been on the banks of Port Phillip Bay since the mid-1800’s, Victoria is the birth-place of Aussie Rules in Australia. History pages will tell us that the first game was played in 1858 between Melbourne Grammar and Scotch College, the Melbourne football club was formed in 1859 and the earliest rules located, were drawn up in 1859 a day later. Early games were influenced by many other leagues, so rules of play had to be agreed upon before each game. If you are Victorian born, Aussie Rules is in your blood.
The other Home is in Kingscliff, in the Heartland of Rugby League, which dates back to 1895, in England and was an entirely different football code, it took hold in Australasia, especially Sydney NSW, Brisbane QLD, Auckland and Christchurch New Zealand and some other Pacific Island Nations such as Papua New Guinea. New Zealand was quite instrumental in initiating International games, touring England circa 1907-8 and while on tour, they played their first Australian teams in the Sydney Showground against a professional NSW Rugby team. In 1908 the first Brisbane game was played at the Gabba and in 1980 the first State of Origin (in its current form) was played between NSW and Qld. In 2014 the National Rugby League Grand Final was the highest rated Television show in Australia. If you are born in NSW, Rugby League is in your backbone.
