* Wittenoom, a small town in the middle of nowhere, famous (or infamous) for 3 things: a blue asbestos mine where almost all the workers caught asbestosis, a book about said mine called Blue Murder, and a song about said mine by MidnightOil called Blue Sky Mine.

* Adelaide, the city of churches. Every second block is a church as a result of the migration of people of a lot of faiths in the city's early history. Every other one is used as a dumping ground for the mob... the water is horrible (no thanks to the upstream states, QLD, VIC & NSW), but the women look fantastic. It's practically surrounded by the source of most of Australia's wine. [[note]]Barossa Valley and McLaren Vale,[[http://www.southaustralia.com/WineRegions.aspx just to name two of the biggest.]][[/note]]. It is also said to be the serial murder capital of the world, and why not? [[VictoryIsBoring Nothing much else happens there]].

* Newcastle, "the Capital of the Hunter (Valley)". Known for coal exports, Silverchair and Andrew Johns. Interestingly, many areas around Newcastle are named after towns/cities in the north-east of England. At least we've got no geordies!

Home of the [[EiffelTowerEffect Sydney Opera House, the Sydney Harbour Bridge]], [[HoYay gay people]], [[AustralianRulesFootball the Sydney Swans]] and many, ''many'' [[RugbyLeague rugby teams]].

* Melbourne, Sydney's arch-nemesis. Home of AustralianRulesFootball and where all the V8 cars get built. Note: it's pronounced Mel-bun or -burn, not Mel-born. It's considered the cultural capital of Australia, [[SelfDeprecation because Sydney has all the important landmarks]]. For more, see [[UsefulNotes/{{Melbourne}} this page.]]

* Port Lincoln, mostly only notable for having the largest natural harbour in the world, which is an export hub for the Eyre Peninsula region. Quite a pretty place, though the region is prone to bushfires. Also produced [[HorseRacing Makybe Diva]], one Australia's most famous racehorses, [[CrowningMomentOfAwesome who won the Melbourne Cup three times in a row]]. Not to mention Tunarama, in which one of the main events is the hammer throw of a fake tuna (it used to be a real frozen tuna, but it started to be too expensive).

* The Central Coast, a region consisting of a number of cities and suburbs between Sydney and Newcastle stretching along the coast; accordingly, it has a ''lot'' of beaches. It was officially counted as part of Sydney or Newcastle before 2005. Home of the pop punk group ShortStack.

* Caboolture. ...Er, KeithUrban comes from there. Which lead to a number of people thinking the Urban Country Music festival was named for him (it wasn't). One of the local schools is the only state-run school with an original classroom still in use as a classroom since its foundation 140 years ago.
