Melbourne and Sydney are bigger than most European cities, bigger than
any German city: the top three are

  Berlin   3.4 million
  Hamburg  1.7 million
  M=FCnchen  1.3 million

Even Adelaide, with only a million, is thus relatively big.

Australia's a very urban society.  I live 44 km from the middle of
Adelaide, and couriers no longer deliver here.  I ordered a laptop
from Dell, and they want a "suburb" to deliver to (no PO boxes).
Particularly Sydneysiders seem to think that Australia seems to end
just behind Paramatta.
