ingloriously dumped

MELBOURNE, April 13 (Xinhua)-- An entire 145-hectare Australian town that recently went on the property market has already attracted international and domestic interest.

The small Tasmanian town of Tarraleah, built in the 1920s to house around 2,000 European workers from the state's hydro electric dam, was put up for sale late last week.

Comprising 33 art deco buildings, a five-star lodge, golf course, church, caravan park, bar, trout-fishing dam and theater, the tourist town is expected to fetch around 10 million U.S. dollars.

But potential buyers haven't been put off by the massive price tag, with the town's real estate agent having already fielded substantial interest in the asset.

"It's only been on the market since last Thursday but we've issued 30 to 40 property reports," Tarraleah's real estate agent John Blacklow, who has never sold a whole town before, told the Australian Broadcasting Corporation (ABC) on Wednesday.

"Some of those have been overseas, a lot from interstate. I think a lot of people are more curious than anything, wondering what's this all about."

The central highlands town fell on hard times during the 1980s and 90s, leaving it largely abandoned.

Tasmania's Hydro Electric Commission eventually sold the town to property developer Andrew Kingdon for reportedly 1.5 million U.S. dollars in 2003.

By 2006, Tarraleah's deed had been taken over by Julian Homer who has since spent more than a decade restoring the town to its former glory.

On top of that, Homer has invested more than 1 million U.S. dollars in the project, and has now decided to sell up.

"We expect groups to purchase it, such as companies who want to use it for retreats, franchise operators and church and religious groups -- we've already had calls from those people," Homer told News Corp.

"Obviously I hope we make money. There's certainly been an aspect of making sure everything is correct and to period, and that cost more than if I had simply renovated them in a modern way."

CANBERRA Cheap Nike Vapormax , Feb. 10 (Xinhua) -- Former Australian Test cricket captain Steve Waugh has refused to buy in to an ugly slanging match with former teammate Shane Warne, after the "spin king" labelled him the "most selfish cricketer I've ever played with".

In an episode that aired on late on Tuesday night Nike Vapormax Sale , Warne detailed his deep dislike for Waugh, who led Australia to 41 victories in his 57 Tests as captain.

He said there were "a lot of reasons" why he didn't get along with Waugh, even though they were teammates for more than a decade and Warne was Waugh's vice-captain for much of that time.

Those reasons included the manner in which he was axed by Waugh from the Test side in the West Indies in 1999 Nike Vapormax Mens , but also the way in which the New South Welshman went about his cricket.

"I don't like Steve Waugh ... (one of them is) because he's the most selfish cricketer I've played with," Warne said.

"I'm not justifying his comments with an answer Nike Vapormax Shoes ," Waugh said in a very brief statement on Wednesday.

On national television, Warne revealed their troubled relationship hit rock bottom after the leg-spinner was ingloriously dumped from the Australian Test team while on tour in the Caribbean in 1999.

While Warne admitted he hadn't performed up to his usual standards, which would ultimately net the Victorian a then-world record 708 Test scalps Nike Vapormax 2018 , in the previous Test, he felt hurt by the manner he was treated by Waugh.

Warne has had a notoriously frosty relationship with several past members of the Australian Test team, including wicketkeeper-batsman Adam Gilchrist and former coach John Buchanan.
