* Don't forget Wollongong - it's the third largest city in the state but due to its close proximity to Sydney [[note]]It's about 80km/50miles or an hour's drive south [[/note]] leads to it being forgotten or counted as a part of the larger city.
**A part of the Illawarra region, which consists of the cities of Wollongong and Shellharbour, their suburbs, and all the farmland inbetween. Plus the beaches - 17 patrolled beaches, making it the largest branch of Surf Life Saving in the state.
**Home to the University of Wollongong, which is the city's largest employer - followed closely by BHP Steel - which gives you a general sense of the region.

** Also, unlike most of the other state capitals Brisbane is not split across multiple local governments (Sydney is split across 31 for example), Brisbane is governed by a single, city council making it Australia's largest local government by population. This is because the Queensland government ''really'' likes combining smaller local governments into larger entities. Most of the other towns on the list have gone through similar processes with the most recent being 2011 (though Brisbane itself and Ipswich were spared ''that'' time)

* 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]].
