9pm in Evatt

There's not a lot happening in Evatt at 9pm on a Monday night. It's quiet and dark, and most people are at home. Maybe they're watching a movie from the local video shop - nothing else is open at this time.

Evatt Shops is one of the small local shopping centres. It has an IGA supermarket, a takeaway, a newsagency, a hairdresser, a butcher, a bakery, a pharmacy and the video shop. The suburb is named after H V Evatt, a Labor politician, High Court judge, author, and he also played a significant role in the founding of the United Nations. In fact, he was President of the UN General Assembly in 1948-49 and his achievements include helping draft the UN Universal Declaration of Human Rights and involvement in the negotiations which resulted in the state of Israel.
