Just noticed in the 'tips, quotes & facts' section of Explooz (look at the left hand side of this page) and noticed :

Fact Geography: No part of Australia is further than 1000km from the sea.

Just to put it all into perspective:

Fact Geography: No part of New Zealand is more than 128 km from the sea.

It also says that Sydney international airport IS named after Charles Kingsford Smith... The sign in the M5 tunnel(if I remember correctly) says Mascot Airport... Has the name changed???
