The jumbo-sized puzzle below completes the trilogy of Cove Holiday Cryptic Crossword Puzzles. This time round, many of the clues and/or answers have a bit of Australian flavour.

If you can't quite get to grips with cryptic crosswords then cruciverbalist (crossword setter) David Astle has written some books that might help. Here is my 2011 review of his first.

It seems that 2017 had a daily constitutional crisis of one sort or another all year. Divert your mind if you can and cross swords with the New Year's Cove Jumbo Cryptic. It is full of happenings and people that have made the news both locally and beyond in 2017 plus much more that is sure to puzzle everyone! Let us know if you manage to solve it!

Time to get those brain cells activated!

Query

Did you ever wonder why ...
Some people spell Boulevarde with a final E
while
there are others who spell Boulevard with no extra E?

Can both be right?

Council, it appears, is confused because some of our local signs have the E at the end but most official Council records show no extra E. Indeed most Boulevards in the world go without an E to finish. Although Hawks Nest of course has "The Boulevarde"! That final E hasn't been washed away - yet.
