Some extracts from Ben's globe:
Wellington (NZ) is slightly bigger than GeraldtonWell, that's really cleared up my confusion about the size of Wellington... I just don't get explaining a more significant city in terms of a tiny little one. And why does Cooper Pedy rate so much of a mention? And why is it described in terms of a rock?
Darwin is a little bigger than Coober Pedy
Coober Pedy is about twice as big as Uluru.
Hobart is about two times the size of Wollongong (pronounced with a short o in the first syllable rather than an oo)
Dunedin (pronounced Doonedin)
Oceania is the smallest of Earth's seven continents. In it you will find Australia and New Zealand and many small islands...It is usually hot here all year round...
