Could be a bit of a stretch referring to Exmouth, Broome, Kalgoorlie and Mildura as "cities". And although I can imagine people from outside Australia having trouble with this quiz, I'm surprised only 70% of people have got Melbourne correct.

Hobart's more well known than miserable Melbourne. Fascinating!

I wouldn't say "well known" Hobart is easy to remember because it is on an island. People might confuse Melbourne with Sydney.

I only got two correct but received five points. (Missed two I should have gotten.) That's a sad representation of how little many of us know about Australia. But I kept trying and on the third try got them all.

Errr...no it's not. Google Maps says it's 1 hour 13 minutes from Brisbane to Tweed Heads (on the border with New South Wales) & in my experience it's often longer than that due to traffic. Yes, I live in S-E Queensland.

While I can name more Australian cities from memory than the average American I'm not nearly as good at placing them (10). Everything I know about location comes from a board game - and it wasn't enough.

Got them all with 2:55 remaining at 4:55:55 PM on February 6, 2019, increasing my point total by 5 points, from 766 to 771. I was able to figure it out because I know the locations of the big ones, capitals plus those of Alice Springs, Cairns, Rockhampton, Broome, Kalgoorlie, and that the eastern side of Australia is higher, which gave a context clue for Mount Isa. Lucky guesses for Mildura and Exmouth finished it off.
