Come on, don't complain dude! You have so many good tournaments across your country, and a big grass arena.

Money talks.
Fair point, but it takes about 4.5 hours to travel to Sydney, and 5.5 to Melbourne.

It isn't the biggest place, but it is the capital city, and more than 50% of us live here.

I assume you mean big by area then because if more than 50% of you live there then it has to be the biggest by population lol

Lol, true. 54% of the population live here, so yes, that is correct, but in area, it takes up 0.008%.
