Two-up in Bellingen
Originally uploaded by Pip_Wilson.
From Wikipedia: Two-up is a traditional Australian gambling game. It is also widely known as swy (also spelt swei), and this is usually explained in terms of the German word zwei, 'two' (on the basis that swy uses two coins) ... Two-up has been legalized on ANZAC Day, when it is played in Returned Servicemen's Leagues (RSL) clubs and hotels.

This photo comes from the Bellingen Diggers Tavern. People bet on heads or tails. Click photo to enlarge.
