Wangi Barbershop and Beardery


Up on the shores of Lake Maquarie is this fine establishment.

"The barber man was small and flash, as barbers mostly are, He wore a strike-your-fancy sash, he smoked a huge cigar; He was a humorist of note and keen at repartee, He laid the odds and kept a "tote", whatever that may be ..." A.B 'Banjo' Patterson from The Man from Ironbark
