What's in a name?

Australia has some amazing place names.

Woolloomooloo for starters. Such a great word that can't help but raise a smile every time it's uttered.

That and the related Wollongong succeeded in making me have a little chuckle everytime I saw them on a road sign or on a map, or anywhere at all.

It all makes for quite the contrast to the English place names I'm a bit more used to. Six Mile Bottom for example.
