Behold the lovely town of St Albans, United Kingdom on the northern outskirts of London


and the Victorian version:

St Albans (Vic) looks okay here, like one of those classic 80s-feeling milk bar strips with a safe feel. A bunch of s**t roads and half lived in houses would be a better representation.

I grew up in Mount Barker (SA) and then moved to a small town in WA that happened to be about an hour away from Mount Barker (WA).

There's a very unremarkable town called Lismore in western Victoria, obviously shares it's name with the much more well known and larger NSW town.

Tons of examples like that. Athens in Georgia, Lebanon in Alabama etc.

British names like Surrey, Richmond, Hawthorn, Brighton etc are all over the Commonwealth/USA.

Sydney is in Nova Scotia. I remember a story where some Europeans landed and thought it was a quick flight to the 2000 Olympic Games.
