Over the years, I've driven through some towns with very tenuous claims to fame. It's kind of fun driving through a flat, dusty, boring landscape with that ghastly sense of anticipation of what claim the next town will try to foist on the easily impressed. This kind of thing:
Koroit, Victoria: Home of the World's Largest Potato (Red Pontiac, 9.7 kilograms, grown April 1957).
Smoko, Victoria: Bushfire Capital of the World.
Trundle, NSW: Consecutive Tidy Town Winner (Neatly Mown Lawns Division) 1975-6.
Junee, NSW: Where Henry Lawson Wrote his First Poem. And Part of the Second. In the Cafe.
Toolern Vale, Victoria: Where Bob Livingstone Hit a Hole in One Twice in One Day (Jan. 17, 1936).
Miles, Queensland: Tea Cosy Capital of the World.
Actually, only one of those is real. Answer here.
Know any more?
