* Norfolk Island, a.k.a. the Australian territory that demands passports for locals from the mainland and would tell the rest of us to sod off if they could. Oddly and totally unconnected to this is that it was founded by the [[Literature/MutinyOnTheBounty mutineers from the HMS Bounty]].

* Sale, a reasonably large and well-serviced city located virtually in the middle of nowhere. Its primary draw is its status as the home of the [[AussiesWithArtillery Royal Australian Air Force's]] primary training school, the former site of a major oil mining operation, [[MundaneMadeAwesome and a swing bridge that still operates]]. Also, it has a ridiculous number of lakes and wetland reserves.

* 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!

* Sydney, the big one, or so it likes to call itself. Home of the [[EiffelTowerEffect Sydney Opera House, the Sydney Harbour Bridge]], [[HoYay gay people]], [[AustralianRulesFootball the Sydney Swans]] and many, ''many'' [[RugbyLeague rugby teams]]. For more, see [[UsefulNotes/{{Sydney}} this page]].

* 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).
