* 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!

* 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).

* 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.
