Places) by danielbowen
So have you got a list of rude place name in Australia? Coz if you type “rude place names” into a British search engine u get quite a few sites informing you of the location of Brown Willy in Cornwall (no, really!) or Cock Bridge and Twatt up in Scotland. Type it into an Aussie one and you get nowt! I dunno, maybe your sense of humour isnt as gutter level as ours, or maybe you have better things to do, but Im going to Oz this year and its my lifes ambition to travel round all the places in the world with rude names so any suggestions would be great.

Ah, the time-honoured tradition of rude place names.
Certainly Australia does quite well in the silly place names stakes. We’ve got Bunyip, Nar Nar Goon… Allegedly there is a place called Dunnydoo (NSW), which could go with Innaloo (WA). And of course Poowong (Vic).
But rude place names? Well apparently there is a Middle Intercourse Island (Qld). For sheer manlyness, there’s Iron Knob (
Qld SA). There’s Mount Buggery (Vic). And the only other one I can think of right now is the old favourite, Tittybong (Vic).
Can anybody else think of some others?
